Why is it easier for our canine friends to forgive, and why do we believe that we can't?

Animals are always an inspiration as they have a capacity for love, friendsip, and loyalty that is unbounded. Always believe when an animal trusts or doesn't trust a human - they know. Thanks for sharing.

Possibly because abused animals who get a second chance at love, believe in this unconditionally. Human beings on the other hand often times believe the absuse they suffered can happen again -depending on the circumstances, and are cautious at being hurt again.

My heart aches for these poor abused animals. Did the people that did this ever get caught? We need strictor laws. Put animal abusers away for good. They serve no purpose in society.

She is indeed beautiful and I wish I could take her. I have 2 dogs and have another with me very day. It isn't a big house. I say this every time I see a dog who needs a home and in my heart I do want them all but in reality I obviously can not do so.

I do wish her happiness though and know that her people are somewhere not too far away. aT least she is not with the monsters who did that to her anymore.

L'histoire de Cadence est très triste mains très belle aussi. Cela dit, les animaux pardonnent plus facilement que nous, parce qu'ils n'ont pas l'esprit de vengeance et la rancune qui peut parfois nous animer. Cela fait toute la différence.

How can the human be so proud of themselves to look down on other living lives?

I don't understand how people can treat animals like that.

Every time I read these stories I get emotional and I think the man is the cruelest ever existed. But luckily Cadence also found on her way somebody of us that has been able to show her that in this world there is also people full of love for animals. Thanks Cher.

Is this Calence?.I only just watched her on you tube the other day for about 30 mintures and I found the video interesting as to seeing how really these dogs get treated.Calence in the video was a scared nervous girl and took a very long time to trust someone.Made me so sad when calence kepted feeling asleep,u could see she went though some kind of hell before she ended being dumped and it makes me sick how human beings can just do this to a poor animal.she is a sweetheart how she would not come out of that hiding she was in because she was so afraid of people,shes a smart girl.I love all dogs and wished I could do what Edgar does as its my passion to help and rescue dogs like calence.
