Dogs love their owners with selfless devotion and are always eager to please. Unfortunately, human beings are not capable of loving them back with the same selflessness. Often people bring home dogs to make them a part of their lives but are quick to abandon them without a thought when things are not right. Others bring dogs home only to mistreat them in the most heart-wrenching way. Countless shelters and dog lovers work night and day to rescue such abused dogs so they can get the love and the care they deserve. These are 5 of the most touching dog rescue stories that open our eyes to the cruelty human beings are capable of and the love that dogs still harbour in their hearts even after years of abuse:
