This dog, named Shiver, was found on the side of the road when he was just a few months old. He had pneumonia, was skin and bones, and had severe skin infections which left him with no fur to keep him warm.

He was practically on the brink of death. His traumatic past left him absolutely terrified of people. His rescuers brought him to the Soi Dog shelter in Thailand. They named him Shiver because he was always cold.

He was very shy, so his caretakers worked with him every day. They took great care of him and after much treatment and intensive care, finally nursed him back to health. He grew into a big and healthy dog, but he was still very shy.

They hoped that he would soon find a home, but days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, and months turned into years. Six years had gone by, and poor Shiver was still at the shelter, waiting for a family to adopt him. It seemed as if he would never find a home.

While he was waiting for his forever home, he met a doggy friend at the shelter named Ework. The two of them bonded instantly and became inseparable. They did everything together and never left each other’s side. Shelters can be a stressful place for dogs, but they comforted each other and helped each other feel safe.

Then one day, a family from across the world heard about Shiver’s story and wanted to adopt him. They only planned on adopting one dog, but after seeing Ework and Shiver following each other everywhere, they knew they couldn’t separate them. The family decided the best thing to do was adopt them both together!

So Shiver and Ework traveled all the way from the shelter in Thailand to their new home in the United States. The two of them had never been in a home before, so as soon as they got there, they did a lot of exploring.

Now they love going on walks together with their new humans and have warm beds to sleep in. These two best friends get to be together forever now and have a loving family who will show them unconditional love and care!
