Anyone who thinks dogs and cats don't have a human range of emotions just isn't paying attention.

Its a one-eyed dog, and its eye socket looks like that because it contains no eyeball.

I want to go cuddle my doggie but someone fed him leftover egg salad so he is banished to the back deck for the next few hours. Hork.

Yay for resues!
All our dogs, and there are plenty, are either pound puppies or owner surrenders. All of 'em are awesome in their own ways and really do seem to be grateful for getting a 2nd or 3rd chance at a happy life.

When I met Augie in the pound he came right up to me and gave me a big doggy kiss.  Aw,  what a sweetie, I'll take you home with me.
That was the only kiss or sign of affection I ever got out of him.
Still miss him.

Rescue dogs rock. I've had fantastic luck with all our rescues. I swear they do feel gratitude.
 
2013-05-17 03:13:47 PM
Thanks, submitter. Now I'm all verklempt.

I'm sure the dog's eyes being closed is coincidence, but still. Sweet picture.

I have a rescue. He USED to be super grateful for everything we gave him and would shower us with affection.  Now he's super spoiled and demanding. And he steals my elderly dog's bones even after I give him one of his own. He has grown up to be such an a**hole.

When I went to see our #4 dog, the first thing he did was try to pee on me. Same thing the second time. Still adopted him, although only a truly evil person would cross a basenji and a JRT.

Rescues *do* know. And its worth the "hassle." :)

Sorry 'bout your dog :(

Except for a cat my wife bought, all our animals are rescue (2 cats, three dogs).

All of them are broken in their own unique way: fat, blind, hyper-vigilant, what have you.

My Shih Tzu's, Kira and Pongo, (brother and sister, actually), started out with some lady who thought they were cute, kept them for a while, but when she was going to have a baby, she gave them to my Mom. My Mom loved and adored them for 8 years, then she got sick and died. They lived with my step father and (half) brother for a year or so, then my step father died. I moved them and my now destitute, disabled and diabetic brother in with me. Those dogs stayed with Chuck all day in bed, Kira would cuddle under his chin, and they did what they could to comfort Chuck. Then Chuck died after a year with me. So those two friendly, smart, adorable dogs lost two Mommies, one daddy and their Chuckie. They got me now, and they have me wrapped around their little furry paws. Gotta take care of Mom's dogs. I do my utmost to spoil them rotten. At 13 for Kira, and 11 for Pongo, they are begining to make their transition to being walking vet bills. I don't care. They are the most awesome dogs ever, Kira the Diva, and Pongo the Stud Muffin. Later this year they'll go up to my hobby farm with me when I retire, and become my froo-froo farm dogs. I'm sure they'll do their best to keep the bears away.....

Found her after she'd been heavily abused by her previous owner and been found in a duffle bag on the side of the road. Best dog in the world and I'd love to throw the previous owner in a duffle bag and toss it in a cement mixer.

I can fully identify with this.  Our rescue JRT mix is the same way, add to that a Houdini complex that sends her over any fence she encounters.  Blatantly ignores us when we call her to come back.  I think I see how she became "a stray" three years ago and ended up in the shelter.

I'm surprised nobody else mentioned "Flawed Dogs"...
https://www.berkeleybreathed.com/pages/09flaweddogs.asp

The novel is touching, and the picture book is hilarious.

(Since getting married, and counting the critters still alive: 5 dogs, 4 cats, 1 horse... all rescues). Our two shelties were dropped off at the rescue by a man who was getting a divorce. She didn't want them, he couldn't keep them. They were 6 and 7 years old, and supposed to only live until 10-12. The last died within 6 months of the first; ages of 13 and 14. They were the sweetest dogs ever. Our current pair of Australian Cattle Dog twins are horrible, wretched beasts that will probably never die. (They're a bit spoiled and don't do anything except let our three-year old ride them like horses.)

I'd like to think it's gratitude, but I think people who adopt rescues are looking for something to love, and the animal is more than happy to reflect/magnify that love in return.

We got one of our dogs from a foster group. She was, at the very least, neglected, and I highly suspect that...

... Yeah suffice to say that I hope I never encounter her former owners. I LIKE not having a felony arrest record..

/That said, I am also a tetch pissed the foster group didn't warn us that she's a submissive pee-er

Ah, I love that "I AM TOTALLY INNOCENT AND YOU CANNOT PROVE ANY THING" look. Get that from the lab-beagle (we think?) foster-rescue all the time. =)

I got my dog at the pound, and besides for being a little shy at first and some minor chewing nothing was broken.  I always feel like I won the doggie lottery because she is such a great pet.  I've had her for 8 years and she's grown into a foul-tempered, bed-hogging, snoring fart-cutter but I love her like crazy.

They're really stretching here to find something sappy. She didn't rescue it from a burning building, she just got it from a shelter. Dog wouldn't have even known it was in danger. That dog's just like "Hugs? ok" just like most dogs

Baroness, our big, dumb, goofy rescue Great Dane.  A guy bought her as a 3-mo-old puppy & threw her in his backyard.  Never did anything with her except put out food & water in the morning--no shelter, no toys, no interaction with another living thing for 9 months before we rescued her in late November.   She was terrified of going into the house the first time--took us over an hour to coax her in.  We've been working with her for almost 6 months and now she follows us all over the house, loves being around people, and plays well with other dogs.

Yeah, this little guy purrs and lays his head on your shoulder when you pick him up. Showed up on the porch one day. I guess he wanted a family and lots of hugs.

Years ago, one of my cats tore through a screen and was missing for three days. I spent the whole three days walking the neighborhood calling him, putting up signs, crawling under bushes to look for him, checking the pound... nothing. Then I got a 3 a.m. call from my neighbors down on the ground floor. "We think we've got your cat. PLEASE COME GET HIM NOW!"

See, Iceberg Slim had never seen stairs (or been outside) in his life, and was unclear on the concept of multi-story dwellings. So he found the right apartment to come home to, only on the wrong floor. Turns out the people down there had a little dog-door insert for their sliding glass door, so Iceberg slipped right in -- and was immediately cornered in the bathroom by their terrier.

As soon as I appeared in the bathroom doorway, he let out a piteous wail and literally *leaped* into my arms -- right over the dog. (He also pissed all over me, but, well, he'd also never met a dog before.) He didn't usually like to be picked up, but he wouldn't let me put him down for an hour. He just clung to me purring and nuzzling.

I'm pretty sure that was gratitude.

/I had to finally put him to sleep a month and a half before his 20th birthday. Saddest day of my life. No one has EVER loved me the way that cat did.

Captain was eventually adopted by an awesome couple a few months ago, and it's been happy-ever-after since. The couple brought Captain to a Badass Brooklyn block party where he was reunited with the woman who saved his life.

Was this written by a 15 year-old?

And "happy ever after" is not hyphenated.

Dogs are farking awesome and humans that hurt them should be castrated and branded.

The branding should be done on their faces so that everyone knows what they did.

The castration would be done just because it is farked up.

About 3 months ago we rescued our 3rd dog. His name is Bloo. He's a 50 lb lap dog who happens to be a blue pit. His trainer has asked our permission to train him as a rescue dog. Smart as a whip and a super cuddle bug. :)

A year later, I adopted my rescued girl's foster brother, who was all over me with kisses when I got her.

I brought her with me. It was along ride.

I was curious if she'd choose her old foster daddy over me with, "Well that wa snice. Thanks for bringing me home again."

It turned out that she was very familiar with the nice people and their home and gave them lotsa kisses.  But she stayed near me.  They were amazed by how much bigger and healthy she was.

Brother and sister romped like old times.  She had no idea her life was changing again. He was still happy to kiss anything that moved.

When I took her brother out to the car the rescue folks all marvelled that she just stared at the door until I came back through it.

I had my answer.  She lubs me.

The new little bro lubs me, too.  He still pushes her out of the way in jealosy.

It amazing how fast they will adjust to new home.
