These Pets Went Through Incredible Transformations After Finally Being Adopted

There are countless people out there who would be interested in adopting a dog, but are held back by the fear that there could be something wrong with it. There are concerns that it may be too afraid of humans and never learn how to properly interact with people. While those problems certainly do exist, they seem to be few and far between. Most people who adopt a dog, or any other animal for that matter, never encounter any of those problems. If you love your pet, they'll love you back. It's often as simple as that.

But don't take my word for it. See for yourself. 

Sad no more.
Ellie was my abusive ex boyfriends dog. I took her when I left. I used to call her Eeyore because she was so sad all the time. It took a while, but we got our spirits back. Top left: 11/15/15, bottom left: 4/7/16, top right: 3/23/17, bottom right: today. from BeforeNAfterAdoption

One year ago, Jake was found underneath a car, alone and half frozen. He was 4 weeks old and his mom was gone. Now he's the biggest kitty with the most personality that I've ever met. from BeforeNAfterAdoption
