That formerly-frightened dog is all smiles as he begins his life anew in a happy home with a person who cherishes him - and through his happy ending, other shelter dogs whose stories haven't been told may soon be finding theirs as well.
"I had a couple of people come in just this morning. They came here specifically to see Larry, but of course, he's gone. But right now, they're in the process of looking at two other animals," shelter worker John Ferdon told The Dodo.
"They come here, looking for one, and fall in love with another. It's good news for all of us."
