Dog chained for 5 years sees the ocean for the first time and howls with joy

A five year old German Shepherd, now called Herschel, had a very difficult beginning of life. The poor animal spent all his time chained in a yard. Fortunately, he was surrendered to Michelson Found Animals, which gave him proper medical attention and a much needed bath.

Unfortunately, Herschel was adopted several times but returned without any fault of his own. However, he is still enjoying life and things have gotten much better for the formerly neglected dog. The shelter contacted Rocky Kanaka, a TV presenter and animal advocate. The man met with Herschel and formed an immediate connection with him.

Herschel met Dog’s Day Out

Dog’s Day Out is a YouTube program that offers a dream day for dogs while helping them to be adopted in the process.

Herschel experienced snow for the first time and loved it. Then, while on their way to Los Angeles, they stopped at the beach and Herschel also saw the ocean for the first time.

He was so ecstatic to see the water he barked and howled with joy. The pup ran straight into the water without hesitation … A vision of true happiness!

Now, Herschel spends the rest of his days with his new mom in California where he will never be in a jail again!
