Welcome to the family Monkey Joe

JANINE: Got one of those calls today. Those calls that make your stomach turn.

It was regarding a chained pit bull, outside with no shelter.

Upon arrival , you could hear a bark coming from behind the house...once around the back I saw the face that belonged to that bark....

A dog stood there, with a 5 foot chain attached to it. His bowl was empty , and there was nothing to protect him from the weather and cold.

That look in his eyes was one that could make your heart melt - it was not one of abuse - it was of neglect. It was of spending his life without the love and affection you know he craved...

I went and sat down next to him , he sniffed my face , then wrapped his front paws around my neck and hugged me tight - as if saying 'thank you' ...

These are the days you realized you changed a life for the better....
