Beautiful Story..

The incredibly sad photo below is of Nico, a 6 year old defeated deaf Dogo Argentino who was in a Los Angeles animal shelter in the summer of 2009. Nico was broken. Defeated. Done. He had given up and lost all hope, as so many shelter animals do.

When the photograph hit the internet, it broke the heart of everyone who saw it. Thankfully some hearts were broken in a good way. People felt motivated to do something. They wanted to change the ending of Nico's story.

People started sharing Nico's photo and his story. And since the internet world is a really small place, word spread like wildfire. Soon Nico was pulled from the LA shelter, even though he was labeled "dangerous" and was believed to have been used for dog fighting.

He was placed with a wonderful foster mom who taught him how to be a pet. She showed him, probably for the first time in his life, what it was like to be loved.

Nico's life hasn't been without challenges. But he's worlds away from where he was just 3 short years ago. He's living the kind of life every dog deserves, with a family that adores him.

Share this beautiful story because it takes only one tiny spark to start a great forest fire. YOU can be that spark! YOU can put into motion the events that will change a shelter dog's life.
