Pierard had planned a vacation full of rest and fun, instead of “finding a way to come home with more work,” she said. That’s when the blind, nameless dog walked into a wall, and their hearts melted.
“I felt too emotionally drained to care for him, but instead of thinking about myself, I decided to think of him,” Pierard explained. “How emotionally drained must he be, utterly alone, in pain and not knowing or even being able to see where he was.”
Pierard sat on the floor of the shelter, and to her surprise the dog started wagging his tail, putting his paws on her shoulders and licking her face. Despite his terrible condition, it was clear the dog hadn’t given up hope on a better life just yet.
