Herschel is a sweet German Shepherd who sadly spent the first five years of his life chained to a post, neglected and unloved by his miserable owners.
The dog was desperate to see what was on the other side of the fence, but his cruel humans had essentially thrown away the key.
The confinement was especially brutal because Hershel is a really big dog. He really needed some room to run.
But the dog, who’d spent his whole life locked in a cage, was basically bouncing off the walls. Few people were eager to adopt a dog with such boundless energy.
After hearing of Hershel’s unfortunate upbringing, the group arranged for the dog’s first beach outing. After being locked in a cage for five years, the dog expressed unimaginable glee upon seeing the ocean for the first time.
“Herschel was able to see the snow for the first time, and he also got to give free teddy bear hugs,” the organization wrote. “As a matter of fact, that day got him enough awareness that now, we’re going on a little road trip to deliver him to his forever home.”
