There's something special about shelter dogs. Maybe it's the struggles they've been through, but when you adopt a rescue dog, there's just something in their eyes that lets you know how grateful they are to finally have a home. This special dog in particular demonstrates the telltale gratitude after it's finally rescued. The new owner couldn't believe what her dog did when she got it in the car for the first time.

There are lots of things to consider when you adopt a dog: personality, energy level, grooming requirements, and training difficulty to name a few. But most people who have adopted will tell you that when you walk through the concrete halls of an animal shelter and lock eyes with a certain pooch, you'll just know.

You'll feel it in your heart: This is my dog.

One woman felt that exact pull when she first laid eyes on an adorable white-and-brown-speckled dog, according to The Dodo. The woman learned that the dog came from an abusive background, so she wasn't expecting it to warm up straight away.

However, it didn't take long for the dog to recognize the love of its new family. As soon as they got in the car to go home, the dog extended its paw to thank its new owner in the sweetest way.
