I could not watch after the second picture. I hope this man's efforts are not in vein.

Good to see you back dear Lindsey....Sad! Had to stop just after the first one, when I was reading the article next to the dog...No words just falling tears!

I hope this gets a ton of exposure, so breeders and puppy mills are all SHUT DOWN...Way do many dogs/cats/bunnies/etc. in shelters being killed every day and just want a home and love.

Hurts my heart can't breathe just thinking about it!
