A heartwarming story of a sad dog who had practically given up on life until she was taken in by an athletic man who brought her back to life. Rescue dogs rule!

There are so many sad stories on Care2 about abused and terrorized animals that I thought this positive story would be welcomed. Who can resist a dog that surfs?! Not me!

What an amazing good looking dog Abbie is! I totally enjoyed watching th video & how she kept kissing her trainer/master in such affection/appreciation. Very moving indeed! Thanks Sue!

Outstanding! I loved to see how happy those little dogs were...some more than others granted (just like people), but most just having a great time. They so love to be part of our daily experiences, don't they? Thanks for the post!

Send a Green Star to Sue L.
Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"

You cannot currently send a star to Sue because you have done so within the last week.
