When Angel, a greyhound mix was rescued from an animal organization in Ireland, she would not turn around and face her new home. PAWs Animal Rescue believes she was traumatized and abused. When Angel arrived at their organization, they say that she just faced the wall in their office and refused to move for days. They would leave her food but Angel would only eat when no one was watching. After bringing in another dog from the same pound, they immediately saw a change in Angel's personality.
passive voice

One of the two "voices" of verbs. A verb is in the passive voice when the subject of the sentence is acted on by the verb. For example, in "The ball was thrown by the pitcher," the ball (the subject) receives the action of the verb, and was thrown is in the passive voice. The same sentence cast in the active voice would be, "The pitcher threw the ball."



active voice

One of the two "voices" of verbs. When the verb of a sentence is in the active voice, the subject is doing the acting, as in the sentence "Kevin hit the ball." Kevin (the subject of the sentence) acts in relation to the ball.
