The dogs don’t understand why they’re in the shelter, and all the noise and activity can make them nervous. But when a dog gets adopted, their whole personality changes. They’re so happy to have a new family, and they can’t help but smile! Here are some great photos that show how much dogs change when they go from a small kennel to a happy home.
