German Shepherd is chained up his entire life, then sees the ocean for the first time


He had never been close to this large body of water before and he got to experience the sand getting between his paws.

Herschel was impatient to feel the water hitting his body. He got face to face with the crashing waves and was happy beyond words.

“He was biting the waves, and jumping in and out like a dolphin. I don’t know if he’s dolphin or dinosaur, or Chewbacca or teddy bear, but I do know this: it brings happy tears to my eyes knowing that he’ll now be loved forever.”

Being picked for #DogsDayOut offered this dog a lifetime experience. He got to meet lots of people who were stunned by his beauty and were eager to hug him and pet him on the head.

Take a look at one of the most beautiful rescue stories you’ve ever seen!
