Did you know that each year nearly millions of dogs end up in shelter houses? These numbers are surely heartbreaking but there is something that we can do to help the dogs. We can adopt the adorable doggies in need and fill our lives with paw-sitivity. Adopting dogs will also change their lives forever and we will get a furry friend that will always be our side no matter what. 

If you are still not sure whether adopting a pup is a great idea or not, scroll down and check out the amazing before & after pictures of adopted dogs. Each of these pictures has a different story. But if there is one thing that is similar in every photo, it is how the sad faces of dogs have become happy once they have entered their new house. 

P.S. Keep tissues handy because you might cry as you see these transformation photos.
