Formerly neglected dog had known nothing but being lonely and chained. Now watch moment he comes home for the first time

At a year old, Buster had never known anything besides the loneliness and neglectfulness that came with his current lifestyle. The dog stayed tied out on a chain at all times, and it became embedded in his neck causing a deep, painful wound. Then one day, some PETA fieldworkers found him…

They noticed the dog’s neck wound and skin condition and approached the owners. Thankfully, the family handed to dog over to PETA. While Buster got the treatment he needed and recovered, they searched for the perfect forever home for him.

And he got just that! Adoption day had arrived, and Buster was on his way to a place he could truly call home for the first time in his life. As he waits at the door for his new family to answer, try not to cry.
