There’s a first time for everything β€” and in Roo’s case, it’s knowing that she’s loved.

A few years back, the sweet golden retriever was dropped off at a high-kill shelter, left to die before having ever truly lived.

Still very much a puppy, she’d spent her entire life denied even the most basic pleasures, including a plaything to call her own. Fortunately, that changed when she was rescued by her new dad, Brian Beker.

β€œRoo the one-year-old rescued Golden Retriever who never had any toys, or so much as anything to chew, grew up imprisoned, starved and neglected,” Becker wrote while sharing a charming video of Roo’s happy new life.

β€œThis is the first time she gets to choose her own toy at a pet shop.”
