It’s amazing what a permanent home can do for a dog. When Lisa Reilly and her mother visited a local shelter, they noticed the morose-looking dog named Bonita was sitting at the back of her kennel.

When they stopped in front of her kennel to see her, the dog started wagging her tail and put her paw through the bars in an attempt to communicate with the women. They were intrigued and asked the staff about Bonita.

As Lisa and her mother walked away, the dog began whining and was sad about them walking away. That’s the moment when the women decided to take her home with them. Once she was taken into her new home, Bonita started acting like a new dog, she was very happy and much more lively!

Animals have feelings and emotions just like humans, and they can express them. That’s why when a shelter dog gets adopted, you can always see a 180 turn in a shelter dog! Recently, a dog was pictured smiling after he was adopted. This Pitbull couldn’t stop smiling which is really heartwarming.
