Herschel, a German shepherd, is a charming animal that brings joy to people. However, his life was once filled with abuse until his eventual rescue brought happiness back into his life.
Herschel’s owner severely mistreated him, confining him to a garden without giving him even the most basic display of affection. Trying to gnaw the chain that was tightly confining him to a dreadful existence, Herschel wore his teeth all the way down to their tips.
Finally, he was taken to an animal shelter. Unfortunately, two families who had taken him in subsequently gave him back to the shelter, unable to commit to a long-term relationship with this lone dog.
The poor dog’s existence was transformed one day when the animal rescue organization, Found Animals, stepped in. Having heard Herschel’s terrible story, they decided that he would never again face the misery of being returned to the shelter.
Found Animals found the perfect person for Herschel, someone who possessed a deep and steadfast love. Before taking him to his future home, they gave him a thrilling day filled with new experiences. Herschel had the opportunity to consume a puppuccino, play in the snow, and eat a burrito.
Despite all the new experiences, Herschel loved his first experience with the ocean the most. He leaped about with unrestrained joy, barely able to contain his delight. After hearing his story, one can’t help but shed a tear.
