“They have lived in wire cages that were above ground, they had never seen a ball, they had never touched grass, they were terrified of people which is fair, the only experiences they had were bad, they have seen and been around horrendous torture. So when they saw us they were rightly afraid. But we have three acres, so when they stood in the grass they looked really scared for three minutes and then the minute we turned back around they were rolling around with their faces in the grass, loving it like dogs, not a caged animal.”⁣ More of this story on our website 👉 #yourkelowna⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #instadog #pets #puppies #dogoftheday #adoptdontshop #adopt #rescuedog #dogs #sanctuary #compassion #kindness #korea #southkorea #stopslaughter #sadstory #kelowna #okanagan #spca #rescuepup #rescue
