"I don’t have to worry about him being on a tie anymore that made me feel so guilty," said Flowers.
"He is going to be free there is less chance that he will become aggressive, no frustration," said Kerry.
While Bruce gets used to his new living space, his owners appreciative of the help and support and inspired to pay it forward.
"I have been down with health issues lately and these people really helped us a whole lot," said Teague
"It makes me feel good. I am ready to help with the next one. I think it is beautiful to watch," said Flowers.
