This darling Chihuahua has something that we all need; hope. This is a dog that knows that sometimes you have to stop looking behind you at a past that might not be good for you, and that you cannot look in front of you for things that have yet to come. He knows that you cannot look to yourself to handle life, either; this dog knows that you have to look up so that you can speak to God about what it is you need and want out of life, and you have to trust that he will provide that for you. Sure, not everyone believes in that and your personal beliefs are your personal beliefs. We are just saying that this little dog, Oliver, used to sit in the shelter in which he called home and he would pray.
He would put his hands up in the prayer pose and he would look as if he was praying for his own family to love and to love him in return. This 2-year-old pup had a near death experience as he was found in the middle of a very busy intersection running in and out of traffic in hopes that he would not be hit and killed. His life was in peril and he was not sure he’d make it out alive; and neither was anyone who saw him during this time.
However, this darling dog was able to find someone to rescue him, and he was taken to a shelter where a photographer was able to catch his image on film as if he was in the middle of prayer. After his photos were all over the internet, a family came into the shelter (and hundreds more called and visited) to make him their own. Now he has a loving family of his own, and he seems happy that his prayers were answered.
