I just wanted to share this heartwarming video of Alf, a Vick rescue dog, who, using TTouch, overcame many of his fears.

It's people like this, rehabilitating and helping dogs like this, that truly show their devotion to man's best friend. It's stories like this that make me proud to be a part of the help, and education needed to make things like this slowly come to an end and people more aware of it.

I wish we could end dog fighting altogether today, but it's a slow process, and it'll likely never end. But it gives you hope, seeing dogs get successfully rehabilitated after being put through so much.

Enjoy the video. Depending on the person, you may or may not want a few tissues. It's more a culmination of photos with music, and some notes on what they did to help him gain his confidence, and overcome some of his fears.
