Most shelter dogs don't get a lot of love and attention. But it's hard to remember that after witnessing the love a puppy named Meesha received this week, documented on camera and now going viral on Facebook.

After undergoing surgery at BARCS Animal Shelter in Baltimore, the puppy was coming off anesthesia and "a little scared because her body felt so weird," causing her to panic and whimper, the shelter said in a Facebook post.

Luckily, the rescue center has surgical assistant Dennis Moses on staff, a kindhearted fellow who decided to take matters into his own hands and soothe the poor pup.

"One of our awesome volunteers just happened to be walking by to capture this sweet moment," the shelter said in the post, which included a video of the heartwarming moment.

"Thank you to Dennis and all the staff who work long, tireless hours in the background of our shelter—saving lives and loving the animals."

Today reached out to BARCS for an update on Meesha, but didn't hear back as of this posting.

But to make the story all the more wonderful, she has since been adopted and is settling in with her new family.
