Rescued From A Life Of Torture, Abused Dog Thanked Her Rescuer In The Most Adorable Way

If you have a dog from a shelter, have you ever wished you could ask them how they ended up in the shelter? I had a dog I rescued that had a long scar on her leg, I wish I could have known how she got that scar. Some dogs are very outgoing and act as if there is nothing in the world that could ever bother them. Other dogs are more reserved and shy. Niya was one of those types of dogs.

She was a little nervous around people – probably from past abuse or neglect. Sadly dogs that seem fearful or nervous are less likely to get adopted.

Kimberley Slown saw Niya at the Gibson County Animal Shelter in Trenton, Tennessee and figured maybe all Niya needed was some time.

Slown is from the dog rescue called Arrow Dog Rescue, and she has taken in plenty of dogs. Niya had gashes on her face, so it was clear she had been abused.

When they got home, with her tail tucked between her legs, Niya found a corner to hide in. Slown knew it would take a lot of time and patience to bring out the ‘happy’ dog inside.

That night, while Slown slept, Niya crept into her bedroom. Slown woke up suddenly when she felt warm breath on her hand.

Niya was there – it was as if Niya realized that she was safe (finally) and just wanted to say ‘thank you!”

Niya is on the mend (emotionally and physically). Visit Arrow Dog Rescue to see what other great things they are doing!
