This beautiful, twice surrendered German shepherd has been given another chance at a having a happy life, and he's enjoying every second of it!
Herschel, who also goes by the name Bear, was allegedly found chained and neglected in a backyard for the last five years, after being given up once before due to his size. He was finally rescued by the Los Angeles based Michelson Found Animals Foundation who provided him the medical and grooming attention he so desperately needed.
To celebrate the pooches newfound freedom and to soften the reputation that larger dogs have so that he could more easily be adopted, Emmy nominated TV host and pet rescue advocate Rocky Kanaka took him for an epic day Dog's Day Out out full of back scratches, bear hugs, and kisses galore! Even better, Herschel soon found himself a loving family and forever home in Washington state!
How bark-tastic is this fairytale of a story! Watch Herschel's full Dog's Day Out episode below.
