Dogs are man’s best friends. They are with us through thick and thin, and have been around throughout the development of us humans as a species. There are various theories as to how and why this happened, but the prevailing theory as to how humans and dogs got so close is that early humans would throw their garbage out close to the campsite, and wild wolves would scavenge around the trash piles.
As they were scavenging, the wolves would bark and howl whenever they heard other apex predators around, such as sabre tooth tigers, lions, and all manner of other scary, prehistoric beasts. Eventually, humans and wolves began to work together. The wolves would protect and warn the humans whenever another apex predator or even other humans were in the area, and the humans would provide the wolves with as much food as they could eat.
This eventually led to humans taking the most docile of the wolf puppies and raising them as their own. This selective breeding over thousands of years would eventually lead to all of the dogs which we know and love today. Everything from beagles and golden retrievers all the way to bichon frises and chihuahuas. However, in the west coast state of California, humans are trying to go back to the way things were – where we help our furry, four legged friends. A group called Hope for Paws goes into kill shelters as well as helping out animals who are being abused by their owners and save their lives.
This is a fascinating story about some great, caring citizens in the Los Angeles area who saw a hopeless canine and wanted to help it. All they knew was that the dog was super shy, and that it did not want to be around people. But then a giant thunderstorm happened, and these great samaritans called on Hope for Paws in order to help this poor pup out. But then they discovered something which would change everything.

Hope for paws is a California based non-profit organization that saves dogs from being put to sleep in shelters along with stray dogs on the street. They help provide these animals with shelter during the worst natural disasters imaginable while the rest of the emergency services are looking for people to save. But during one of the worst thunderstorms of the year, the brave organization got a call which would change everything.
