Watch: Rescued Lab Beagles Touch Grass for the First Time
For nine dogs who had spent their lives inside of cages, sunshine and grass were two completely alien ideas. But freedom is better known late than never.
The dogs were part of a group of 2-year-old beagles rescued by the Beagle Freedom Project earlier this year. After having been used in laboratory research their whole lives, the dogs were released, and one of their first stops outside the lab was to a patch of grass.
With great hesitation, one by one, the beagles stumbled about, not knowing at first what to do. And on the ride home, the pups, who had "known no soft human touch" before, got to cuddle and kiss their new human friends.
