These Illustrations Perfectly Depict How You Feel When You Rescue A Dog

Rescuing a dog from an animal shelter is a life changing experience. From the moment you find each other, there is a tidal wave of emotions including a bit of apprehension about what’s to come. Opening your home and heart to a being who may have had a rough start sometimes leads to a shaky beginning for your new life together.

As you get to know one another, though, you fill each other up in equal measure with love. Both of you grow in confidence and learn how to be together and make this new life work in every wonderful way. There is no challenge the two of you can’t face and you realize, in time, that both of your lives will never be the same again. And it’s a beautiful thing.

Russian illustrator Bird Born adopted a shelter dog and chronicled their journey in a series of heartfelt, emotion-inspiring drawings that perfectly depict what its like to rescue and love one another.
