The unfortunate German Shepherd yelps in amazement as he glimpses the ocean for the first time.
The initial five years of Herschel the German Shepherd’s life were fraught with hardship. The hapless dog was kept on a chain for a significant part of those years in a barren backyard. When rescuers found him, his teeth were severely worn down as he had tried to gnaw through the metal chain in a desperate bid for freedom.
Ultimately, Herschel’s previous owner made the right decision by surrendering him to Michelson Found Animals. The animal rescue provided him with the care and medical attention he desperately needed.
However, over the following six months, Herschel was adopted and returned to the shelter multiple times. The dog struggled to adjust in his new homes due to his lack of socialization during his years of being chained up.
According to Michelson Found Animals, Herschel required a caring and dedicated home. They reached out to Rocky Kanaka, the host of the show, for assistance. This program aims to provide dogs who have faced difficulties with a fun-filled day.
Rocky treated Herschel to a variety of delectable food, including a scrumptious dog cupcake, during their enjoyable outing. Herschel also had a blast playing in the snow with Rocky, and he relished every moment of it!
Herschel completely won over the heart of one Dog’s Day Out viewer, who expressed interest in adopting him. Rocky and Herschel then drove to the viewer’s home in Los Angeles.
During their journey, Rocky made a stop at a beach so that Herschel could experience the ocean for the first time in his life. Rocky and Herschel walked onto the sandy shores, and Herschel began barking with pure excitement. Rocky was overjoyed to witness the sheer contentment of this adorable pup!
Rocky and Herschel had a great time playing in the waves and sand. As they frolicked in the warm water, Rocky had a wide smile on his face.
He adores it, and I won’t prevent him from staying because, for all I know, he might swim to San Diego.
Herschel is now happily settled in Los Angeles with his new owner, where he has unrestricted access to the ocean. After all he’s been through, this precious pup deserves to indulge in as much ocean time as he desires. He simply can’t get enough of the sea!
Despite his difficult past, Herschel remains a remarkable dog. Watch the video below to learn more about Herschel and see him enjoying himself in the water.
