That's such a broad word. Really, it can mean the small negligences, like not keeping your dog on a leash, or it can have far-reaching effects like not spaying your dog and producing dozens of puppies that go on to produce even on

I found the most beautiful little puppy (mixed) in the shelter here in Brookings, OR. She was scared to death of everything from car and truck sounds to the wind and ocean waves.
I have worked with her for over a year and she is coming around to her and my efforts.
She is very quiet, sleeps at my feet on the bed and follows me every where I go in the house.
I often wish I could get into her head and find out what trauma she has been through. But, maybe that is better left alone.
The first day I brought her home from the Shelter she seemed happy to have a new home.
I left her in the fenced yard to explore.
A couple of hours later I called for her to come into the house. I left the front door open and went about my business.
Four days passed and still no sign of her. I walked the woods calling and searching by day and at night with a light.
I had nearly given up when I decided to look under an old shed near the house.
Shining my flashlight underneath the shed I saw a small bundle of black and white fur. I gasped. I supposed that I had found her little body. It had been 4 days in blistering heat.
With the help of neighbors, we used poles and stuff to pull her body out.
She was limp, eyes glazed and barely breathing. Her little body was as light as a feather.
Don't give up on a lost animal. They want to be found, but not by the person that scared or mistreated them in the first place.
The little puppy was found wandering on the beach amid the crashing waves and dangers. Hungary, snarled and afraid.
She is doing just great now with the help of a very kind Vet.
Thanks to the two little boys who found her and took her to the Shelter.
It's hard to write about something like this with tears in your eyes.

Samuel, that was a beautiful story of a saved pet! Remember, YOU SAVED her, I'm sure she will be grateful to you forever! Mistreated animals are often misunderstood, a lot like us humans! Thank you for sharing that touching story!
