Get the tissue ready for a story that's both sad and happy. This set of beagles known as the 'Lucky 9' get to see the sun & feel grass on their feet for the first time ever. 

All nine of the pups owe their independence to an organization called the Beagle Freedom Project. Their mission is, "to rescue beagles used in animal experimentation in research laboratories and give them a chance at life in a loving forever home."

The 'Lucky 9' seen in this video were raised from birth in a lab in Las Vegas. They had never known a kind touch nor have they been loved... until now.

Their lives are about to change forever...
