This is Herschel, a five-year-old German Shepherda and this is his story. He looks like a teddy bear, and is adorably cuddly, but life was not too easy on him and for the first time in his life, he got a reason to smile when he got picked for a Youtube show Dog’s Day Out by Rocky Kanaka.
Herschel also called Bear, did not have a smooth life. He got adopted and surrendered twice. The second time he was dumped in a backyard.
Chained up and neglected in a backyard for much of his life, he really needed a chance at a better life. So when he was surrendered to Michelson Found Animals, he got him the medical and grooming attention he badly needed.
Herschel is now 5 years and is not a puppy. His weight was close to 110 pounds, and because he was chained for most of his life, he lacked social skills.
He got his lucky break though when Rocky Kanaka decided to help him by giving Herschel the best “Dog’s Day Out.”
The show helps hard-to-adopt rescue dogs find a forever home. Their day started in “Big Bear” where he saw the snow for the first time.
After his winter adventure, Herschel offered free bear hugs to people.
While he was on his way to meet his new mom, Kanaka took Herschel to see the ocean and before they even entered the beach, Herschel started barking and howling in sheer excitement.
While watching this dog’s reaction towards the beach it’s hard not to shed a tear.
Herschel’s new mom said, “I know Herschel has a lot of fans, and I just want to assure everybody that he will never see a chain ever again in his life. He will never be tethered. There will never be a day without love.”
