Dogs are some of the sweetest, most loving beings on this earth, and it warms any pup lover's heart to see a dog comfy and happy. Unfortunately, not every dog is well-taken care of. There are many rescues that aim to help owners care for their canine friends, whether by providing access to healthcare, surrendering and adoption, or alternatives to leaving a dog outside.
In the case of @bevonfreeman, who works with Saving Tails Animal Rescue in Flint, Michigan, her latest viral video came about while she was delivering goodies to one of her four-legged friends. She often visits pups who live outdoors, leaving them essentials like toys, food, and doghouses to help them navigate each day. This time, she gave this sweet, chained-up dog her very first toy, and we're reaching for the tissues already.
What a precious little angel dog! She was so gentle when taking the rope toy and receiving pets from Bev--it's like she was saying thank you for the gift and the love.
"She was so happy with that toy," commented @az_hot_dawgs. "At least there's water, hopefully she doesn't spend winter outside. She looks well fed which is a huge plus." That is true, but it doesn't erase that this poor pup spends the entirety of her life at the end of a chain.

Needless to say, this upsets many people, including many in the comments. Viewer @misskay1974 said, "We don't deserve dogs! They should never be chained," and we couldn't agree more. Dogs are members of the family!
"Laws have to change..." @teddyrufus2010 wrote. Yes! That's exactly the kind of battle @bevonfreeman could take on with Saving Tails Animal Rescue, but until something changes on a larger scale, she'll be reaching out to individual pups to help as much as she can. Thank you, Bev!
