There so many reasons why people think about adopting a dog. Some want a small pup, some want a big pup. For this particular dog, him being ‘too big’ as a puppy caused him to unfortunately fail 14 of his first adoptions. Now, he’s finally found his furever home and just loves his brand new furever family oh so much!
Meet Ronald. He’s got a larger frame and weighs in at only 63 pounds. Most people rejected him after doing test-runs at home and ended up returning him back to the shelter. Most people reported back saying that he was simply just way too big and strong. (Do you not know how big he is when you see him?)
Let’s take a deeper look into Ronald’s story! Why was this dog ‘too big’ and how is he fitting in with his brand new furever home who loves him oh so much?
The SPCA of Wake County out in North Carolina said that the puppy was pretty good at knowing his commands, but occasionally gets really excited when he sees humans.
According to the Washington Post, a family, back in January, decided to take on the challenge (to most of the people that tried, at least that is) of bringing Ronald into their home for trial runs. SPCA was a little hesitant and concerned after poor Ronald was jostled around back and forth from 14 other (silly) homes; however, here’s where things took a turn for the better. The mere second that Ronald entered their home, one of the kids stated ‘Oh he’s perfect. He’s staying.”
Ronald is super happy in his brand new home and is still doing well following commands. As far as his overexcitement for humans go, he might just stand up and place his paws on you, or according to his owners ‘get a little mouthy’ in the best and cutest ways possible with you.
It seems to me that Ronald is fitting in perfectly with his new family. It’s a shame those others didn’t really give him a fair enough shot; however, in hindsight, I’m sure Ronald’s happy about all of those other rejections because it led him to his brand new family and furever kid best friends!
What do you make of Ronald’s amazing comeback story? Have you seen any other dogs go through this or did yours prior to adoption him or her? Let’s hear and chat all about it down in the comments below and as always…Woof, Woof!
