Abused Dog Receives Affection For The First Time. Her Reaction Says It All.

So heart-wrenching.

On November 11, 2015, a woman named Monica Mitreanu visited an animal shelter in Romania. What she found there was a little dog who had been abused. 

In a video, we see the dog yelp as Mitreanu approaches. It clearly has had no positive associations with humans, so Mitreanu must carefully ease her hand onto the dog's head. Slowly but surely, the dog seems to warm up to her. Then the video cuts to a scene of the animal being held, and then happily playing in the leaves. Clearly, it has made big strides toward living a happier and healthier life. 

According to the YouTube description, the dog has now been adopted and named Priscilla.
