Meet Gizmo D. Wienerdog.
Found running loose on the side of the expressway, this little pup was saved by a kind-hearted lady and then quickly found his way into my home — and into my heart.
Ever see a puppy in a quandary? Take a moment to enjoy the video — silly Gizmo loves his squeaky toy.
As I heard someone say recently, he’s my ‘Ham and Cheese’!
He’s also smart and sweet, a wriggly, snuggly, loving soul who’s gotten a second chance at life.
It just goes to show that rescued, abandoned and shelter dogs make the very best of pets. You don’t have to buy a dog to get a great companion. You can adopt one.
Tragically, most thrown-away and shelter dogs don’t see happy endings, but we can change that. All it takes is being aware, and having a heart. The extra mile you go will be repaid a thousand times over.
Next time you want to add a new best friend to your family, please consider adopting a shelter dog, stray or rescue.
*Thank you to Jessica for saving Gizmo and bringing him to me to love.

Please make a difference. Save a life. Adopt your next pet.
