This is Oakley, but I think he looks like Gizmo from Gremlins. He is a very sweet rescue. In a way he is kind of a therapy dog as he helped Cloe get over her fear of dogs. But it seems that all dogs that are rescued know it. They can smell the death at the institutions, and know what they were saved from. Adopting a rescue is one of the most simple ways to practice compassion I’ve found. A simple act of giving life will find you rewarded with love forever. It seems that the way with dogs is also the way with humans. A little time of caring, a little time of sincere love goes a long way.
