The cute dog won the hearts of the employees of the institution.
Dogs are one of the unique animal species capable of empathy. They somehow sense when a person is under stress and seek to help. Sometimes it even helps them find a home.
The Picaso Plott Hound mix was delivered to the Kanawha-Charlestone Humane Association shelter in Charleston, Massachusetts last November.
The cute dog won the hearts of the employees of the institution, but, despite all their efforts, he could not find an owner.
The shelter posted photos of the student on social networks, talking about how kind, affectionate he is, how he loves children and behaves well on walks, but nothing worked until the employees decided to participate in the holiday with dogs.
During the procession of the participants, the dog suddenly rushed at the girl, who was sitting on the side of the road, holding her hands on her knees and looking upset.
It turned out that she had a panic attack, and Picasso somehow felt it.
16-year-old Abigail Ellis has postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, which is accompanied by severe panic attacks.
Feeling that Abigail needed help, Picasso pulled the shelter worker out of the column by the collar and rushed to console the girl.
He didn’t lick her, didn’t jump on her, didn’t bark.
According to Abigail, at that moment she felt safe. It became easier to breathe, the attack gradually stopped.
The shelter staff, touched by Picasso’s act, spoke about the incident on social networks, hoping that now the dog will definitely find the owner. But unexpected guests came to the shelter: Abigail and her mother.
They could not forget the kindness of Picasso and wanted to open the doors of their house to him.
