Black Dog Syndrome: The mysterious, impossible to prove, totally true problem afflicting shelter dogs across the country.
Charlie and Caleb had a tumultuous life before coming to AAWL. A gentle man living in rural California provided a safe haven for dogs he found dumped in the desert near his house for years.

They became friends at the small house and looked out for each other like brothers.
