Dolly was a small dog with a big heart. She had been rescued from an abusive household and brought to the animal
shelter where she waited anxiously for a new home. But her past trauma left her sleepless, restless, and always on edge. Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months, but no
one seemed interested in adopting Dolly. She would spend her nights pacing back and forth in her kennel, her eyes always wide open, and her ears perked up, listening for any sound that might suggest danger.
One night, a volunteer named Sarah decided to stay a little longer at the shelter. She walked around the kennels, checking on the dogs, and when she reached Dolly’s, she saw the dog lying on her side, her eyes closed, and her breathing slow and steady.
Sarah was amazed. She had never seen Dolly so peaceful. She sat down beside the dog and stroked her gently. Dolly opened one eye, then the other, and looked up at Sarah with a sense of trust.
For the first time since being rescued, Dolly had found peace. She had found someone who cared about her, someone who understood her, and someone who would never let her go back to the life she had before.
From that night on, Sarah came to the shelter every evening to spend time with Dolly. They would sit together, Sarah stroking the dog’s fur, and Dolly closing her eyes and letting out a contented sigh.
And eventually, Sarah decided to adopt Dolly and take her home. Now, Dolly sleeps soundly every night, curled up next to her new owner, finally free from the nightmares of her past.
