|While they probably do not understand they were 'rescued', per se; I fully believe they realize that they are now loved and cared, whereas their situation beforehand was not as good. How they demonstrate that probably depends on what their previous situation was like. For us a rescue is sometimes as simple as taking in a dog another family simply did not want anymore (which is Duke's situation), or finding a puppy that was dumped (Twister's situation), but there was probably nothing actually abusive with the dog's situation. But the one's who have been brought out of situations that were abusive, neglectful, etc probably have a fuller understanding of what you have done/are doing for them.
There is one animal rescuer that I really like, he takes videos of many of his rescues as they actually happen. The change shown in many of the dogs, sometimes within just minutes, is so awesome. I don't know if anyone here has heard of him, but his name is Eldad Hagar, I've posted links to his fb page and youtube channel. I love watching the videos.
Ok, I just watched this one of Ace and I gotta add it here. I like Ace. ^^
