This Dog Family Is Adorable, But They All Share One Sad Thing In Common

There's a home near Sacramento, CA, that has many lucky pups living under its roof, and it's all thanks to Carmen Miller. She and her dogs share their home with her husband, son, and his girlfriend. Miller volunteers at the local animal shelter, which is where she met Kilo, but Kilo isn't the only one who Miller saved — she's got six adopted pups in addition to an ever-rotating crew of foster canines...

He arrived at the shelter absolutely terrified of people.
