When he first came to the Puriton Horse and Animal Rescue is Somerset, England, Rex the German Shepherd Dog was so mean, it took two people to feed him. Staff at the shelter thought he might be untrainable and would probably end up being euthanized, but that has all changed since Geraldine came into Rex’s life:

“It’s so comical to see them because they love each other to bits,” said Sheila Brislin, who runs the Puriton Horse and Animal Rescue, near Bridgwater, Somerset.

“She just runs around alongside him all day long and whenever we take him for a walk in the woods she has to come too.

It’s amazing what a little love and companionship can do for a troubled animal.
