When trying to persuade another being of something that is good for them the direct approach often doesn’t work. On the other hand, when you literally ‘get alongside them’, the results can be magical. It’ll even work with a dog. Here’s a heartwarming reversal-of-neglect video:

The original story:

This is the heartwarming moment a veterinarian comforts an abandoned, and very scared, dog named Graycie.

Dr. Andy Mathis of Elberton, Georgia was having a rather normal day at Granite Hills Animal Care when somebody brought in a very malnourished dog that had been abandoned on a dirt road.

“She was dumped in the middle of nowhere,” Dr Mathis told ABC News. “She had a collar, so she was owned by somebody at some point. Whoever was feeding her wasn’t feeding her enough. She was 20 pounds when we found her and probably should have weighed 30 to 35 pounds.”

Graycie was very suspicious of her new surroundings and it was evident to anybody that walked past. That’s when Dr. Mathis climbed in the cage himself, sat down, and started eating breakfast with her.
