Terrified German Shepherd Learns To Trust Again

Animals are very sensitive creatures. They can feel and process a lot of the same negative emotions that we can, such as fear or sadness.

Sadly, it is not uncommon for stray animals to be traumatized after their experiences of living on the streets since that is usually a very stressful and emotional time in their lives.

However, anyone who has ever adopted a stray pet knows just how incredible of a transformation they can undergo once they’ve been brought into a safe and loving environment, and Rain is no different.

Once rescued, it didn’t take long for the real Rain to emerge.
