It's not uncommon for shelter dogs to come from difficult backgrounds and have lingering trauma from those experiences. It's important to help these dogs adjust to their new environment so they feel safe and have an easier time getting adopted. One shelter volunteer was successful at helping one pup acclimate to his new situation, and the result is so heartwarming!
TikTok user @thor_god_of_corgis is a shelter volunteer in Houston, Texas and recently shared a video of one of a Pit Bull named Banksy that is available for adoption. This user helped Banksy adjust by allowing him to decompress at her home where he can learn to trust humans again in a relaxing environment. Check out the video to see Banksy's amazing transformation and how the shelter volunteer helped him!
Awww, we are so happy for Banksy! We are in awe at how much progress he has made, but it is clear the volunteer dedicated a lot of time and energy to helping him overcome his fears. Amazing work from both of them!
People in the comments are falling in love with Banksy. @rachelw2196 said, "Awe, sweet baby, you're loved more than you know," and @trishagoll commented, "I just love his onesie and his soulful eyes. He's perfect." Now that Banksy has become more comfortable around people, he should have no trouble getting adopted with that sweet face of his!
Others are praising the volunteer that welcomed Banksy to her home. @justboredumb commented, "Thank you for healing this sweetheart inside and out!" Another user, @karleighgirlxx, said, "Thank you so much for showing him the love he deserves!" We are so thankful for good people like this volunteer who spend their time helping these dogs in need of love.
We love to see how much progress Banksy has made. No dog deserves to go through what this pup experienced, but he is putting it all behind him thanks to the care and compassion shown by some special humans.
