You might forgive Anubis for crying a little on his first night with his new family.
How was this brutalized dog from Egypt supposed to know he had found his home at last in Texas?
But when his owner, Kelly Hutson, got down on the floor beside him, Anubis stopped crying. And when she curled up beside him, Anubis didn't stir for the rest of the night.
In fact, for this dog nothing quite settles the soul like human contact.
"When I brought him home last night I sat with him and all he wanted to do was put his head against me and for me to love on him," Hutson tells The Dodo.
