Rescue dog wakes mom up to thank her in her own sweet way

Kimberley Slown has rescued hundreds of dogs through her organization, Arrow Dog Rescue, and it’s moments like this that make it all worthwhile.

She brought home an abused dog named Niya from the Gibson County Animal Shelter in Trenton, Tennessee. And on the second night, the dog did something too sweet for words.

Kimberley felt Niya’s nose pressed into her hand.

“She just breathed into my hand and I woke up and immediately paid attention to her, petting her and talking to her,” she told The Dodo. “She smiled and leaned in.”


Be sure to check Arrow Dog Rescue’s Facebook page for updates on Niya’s progress.

Someone’s going to be the owner of a very special dog. 😊
