This is cole. he is the sweetest, most affectionate and loving dog in the whole wide world. and he was beaten by his last owner.😢 it’s stories like this that churn our stomachs, that make us want to scream. cole was reportedly taken away from his owner by a police officer due to the physical abuse he had sustained. the officer brought him into a rural shelter in idaho, and cole was recently transferred here to be adopted.
here’s the thing: you would never know the trauma cole has lived through just by meeting him. he is quite literally the world’s sweetest dog. he immediately comes up for loves and attention. ok, he can be a little clingy, and yes, he definitely wants to jump up and be a lap dog -- but it’s just because he wants nothing more than to be loved by his human. cole’s personality and health are absolutely excellent, despite his past, so we’re anxious for this guy to get a fresh start in a loving home.
we’re not sure how cole feels about other animals or kids. we suspect that he would try to lick kids’ faces off, but he hasn’t met any here yet. we were told that he was afraid of the leash and would freeze up when a leash was put on him at the last shelter. we haven’t seen that here.
what we’ve seen is a 3 year old dog who’s still very much a puppy. what we’ve seen is a beautiful boy who just wants to be loved. and what we’ve seen is a dog who has made it through the worst time in his life and is ready for his happily ever after.❤
