This video really speaks for itself. This dog was in a shelter for 9 years, waiting for someone to come and adopt him. After so long, the dog started to give up hope and think he would be living his whole life in the shelter. One person got word that he was the longest resident at the shelter and chose to give him a new opportunity to experience the world again. This dog cannot contain his excitement as he runs up and down amongst other dogs, he is literally lost for words.
