When the “broken” dog discovers that he is at last secure, he cannot stop grinning.

Animals that experience cruelty frequently lose hope in happiness and give up on life.

When Sanford arrived at a Texas shelter, he was seen as a “broken dog.” He had been driven over, but his right leg also had been shot.

He continued to stand in the shelter’s corner without turning to face anyone.

However, he hasn’t stopped grinning since a foster mom took him home and introduced him to her other foster dogs.
He is the happiest dog Karen Velazquez, the foster mother, has ever encountered.

Karen told The Dodo, “I am currently on my 52nd foster, and I can honestly say that I’ve never had somebody as joyful as him.”

“He stares at me in a manner that no other animal or person, even my own pets, has ever looked at me. In essence, the only times he is not grinning are when he is eating or napping.

Animal control authorities discovered him by the side of the road after he had been struck by a car and had also sustained a gunshot wound to his right hind leg.

He was transferred to a small shelter in Dallas, but because of a lack of finances, he received no medical attention there.

Fortunately, a volunteer from the neighborhood dog rescue group Dallas DogRRR noticed Sanford and knew she had to act fast.

He was actually damaged. Kerry Anechiarico, executive director of Dallas DogRRR, told The Dodo that when the volunteer went to meet him, he didn’t really make any effort to come and say hello. It almost seems as though he had given up and was simply waiting for his moment to strike.

He was transported to foster mom Karen’s house and changed into a different dog after receiving the necessary medical attention.

Since then, he has been beaming, she reported. “I believe he knew he was in a safe place the moment he entered my house,” I said.

Sanford, or “Sanfee” as Karen calls him, is currently enjoying the finest life possible, eating home-cooked meals, taking daily walks, and playing with his new canine friends.

The playful 10-year-old canine is in need of a lifelong home.

He reminds me of an elderly man you might encounter at a nursing facility. He may be 95 years old, but Kerry observed that he behaves as though he is in his 50s.

He’ll make a wonderful family dog, she continued. He will get along with all people and canines. He is even good with children.
