Pavlov is a stray Pit Bull that was found wandering the streets. And being homeless took a toll on the dog’s health. When animal control found him, he was emaciated, and his fur was in terrible condition. And although he was not on the streets anymore, Pavlov was not out of trouble yet. If no one adopted him, there was a good chance that he would be put to sleep.
Luckily, Pavlov was found as a good candidate for a prison training program called New Leash On Life. In this program, at-risk dogs are brought to prison, where they will stay with inmates, and be trained as well. This is where Pavlov met Steven.
Steven was an inmate that volunteered to be part of the program. After graduating from his own training as a trainer, he was given Pavlov as his trainee. The two were always together. Even when sleeping. They shared a bed together, and Steven said that some times, Pavlov would hog the bed all for himself.
As the days passed, Steven and Pavlov have formed a bond between them. It took some time to get the dog to be obedient, but after two months, Pavlov started to listen to Steven. They both gradually started to make progress. Their training would provide them the opportunity to integrate back into society. Steven even got an early release for his work with Pavlov.
Although he was happy that he was finally free, Steven was constantly worried about the dog. He wondered where Pavlov would go after he left. He wanted to take the dog with him, but he was still uncertain about his own future. It turned out that he had nothing to worry about. Pavlov met Marina, who fell in love with him instantly. So Marina decided to adopt him.
Marina and Pavlov became happy with each other. And when Marina discovered about her dog’s relationship with his trainer, she sought out Steven. They soon became friends online, and Marina would send Steven pictures of Pavlov. Then finally, Marina decided its time for the two to have a reunion.
Steven was now working at the animal control center which took Pavlov off the streets. Marina then took the dog for a surprise visit, and it resulted in an emotional reunion. Steven was speechless at first. And when Pavlov came near him, they gave each other a loving hug. The two played that day, reminiscing their times together. They vowed to see each other again, and Marina is happy that her dog now has more love given to him.
