We often forget just how emotional animals can be. They have feelings too, and they can also experience the same anxiety, fear, and sadness that is associated with abandonment.
That is why animal shelters are such depressing places. They’re full of sad animals who’ve been abandoned and are feeling scared, vulnerable, and unloved.
Every animal deserves a loving, forever home. Sadly, not all animals get lucky right away. Some of them are left to wait in a shelter for someone to come and notice them and then take them home.
For Bam Bam, life took a depressing turn when he was surrendered to an animal shelter by his former owner. The poor dog was so incredibly depressed and anxious, not knowing what was going to happen to him.

In fact, the dog was so scared that he was actually trembling. Bam Bam was so withdrawn, the staff figured that he was shutting down and were preparing to euthanize him.
Luckily, one animal rescuer, Nai’a, wasn’t about to let that happen. She knew straight away that he needed her help and she was willing to give it in spades.
Heartwarmingly enough, once Bam Bam had made it out of the shelter, it was as if he knew that his fate had changed for the better. It was just what the precious pup needed in order to come out of his shell.
As soon as he felt safe, Bam Bam underwent quite the transformation. And soon, he was ready to join a brand new forever home!
