Dogs have a way of comforting us during our toughest times. It’s often difficult to understand the issues facing the homeless population, but, incredibly, it turns out dogs are some of the most empathetic, compassionate companions out there, and often help those struggling humans get by.

 Once a dog forms a close relationship with a caring owner, their loyalty can be unbreakable, and they will stick with their owner through thick and thin. And unlike us, dogs don’t pass judgment on people who are down on their luck or homeless.

This post is a tribute to homeless dogs, who love and stick with their homeless owners no matter what.

Pet dogs offer vital help to the homeless. They provide them with unconditional love in a time when much of society has turned their back on them and they protect their owners from the many dangers of the streets.

Surprisingly, many homeless dogs are relatively well-cared for. Homeless owners will often choose to go hungry themselves rather than see their companion go hungry, although they are often unable to provide their pets with professional veterinary help.

    The dogs all look much healthier than their human partner. In some of the close-ups, even the dog's nails are in better shape than many non-homeless and prosperous people's dogs.

    Cpmpassion has everything to do with poverty

  13. The real love is that these men and women cannot get a place to stay because they won't accept dogs. The human bond with a dog or pet is sometimes more important then family because of the unconditional love they give. Bless all.
