Why should it be called "12 nights"?
Since each dog was caught in a shelter, under the protection of the law, each dog had 12 nights of waiting to be brought back by the original owner or claimed by the new owner. If after 12 nights, the dog will be euthanized. Unfortunately, in the extreme cruelty of shelters, many dogs do not survive these 12 days. So 12 nights, it is the dog waiting for the adoption of the 12 nights, but also the most vulnerable to the dark 12 of human nature night.
Nine knives said: "Was caught in the shelter of the dog, some came in when the thin bone such as firewood, emotional wandering and excited, do not know how long wandering in the street." Some dogs are still wearing collar, hair color clean shiny, look at a loss not know why he was caught here. I saw a dog being put into a cage, scared of fecal incontinence, and he went into the cage is not very much, the stool is contained in the middle of his anus, neither out, nor shrink back, he kept this scared stiff posture for at least two hours.
