"Bear" was abandoned, 16 years-old and on the brink of death. No one in their right mind would adopt him from a shelter. However, one family did. The results were amazing. His fur was either matted or missing and he was just a skeleton of a dog. But thanks to a little food, grooming and (most importantly) love... Norman transformed into an entirely different dog.

His ride to freedom.
The first day home.
Norman (his new name) found a cozy spot for naps.
Lots of naps.
He started living the good life.
Eating and napping were his favorite past times.
Also, he loved to be loved.
After being rescued, he had an entirely different outlook on life... and look.
Dog adoption not only saves lives, it makes them so much better. Source
