At the San Bernardino City Shelter, volunteers spend hours socializing, exercising, and videotaping dogs brought into the shelter. Meet the animal lovers who are always hoping to give the abandoned, downhearted, and often neglected another chance at a better life.

These are the unsung heroes of the animal adoption world, but too often, the disappointments can be devastating. On Wednesday, a number of dogs were humanely euthanized. It wasn't for the lack of trying; it's solely the fault of overpopulation and irresponsible owners.

And then a faint rainbow appeared out of the storm of deaths at the high intake shelter; Eric, a dark gray and white pit bull mix in Isolation Kennel #3 had been spared. Eric showed no signs of illness.

He is not in the mainstream of kennels where adopters pass as they search for a new friend, but Eric, the three-year-old who has been described as timid when you first meet him, is shown in his videos to be mellow and especially fond of a good body rub.

Please share Eric's story with your friends, family, and coworkers. Let this dog be the life that so many others have not been lucky enough to have found.
