All of His Siblings Were Adopted, But This Puppy Was Left At The Shelter Alone… Until This Happened

A Pivotal Age

I remember the first time I saw him. There he was, a big puppy with paws almost as big as my hand, looking a little sad and stressed out. At just four to six months old, he was at a pivotal age. It broke my heart to see such a young dog struggling to comprehend his surroundings. Why was he in this place? What had brought him to this situation?

The Story Behind Those Eyes

A Good Samaritan had found him abandoned on a property with a litter. They had kept him for two weeks, hoping to find his owner. But no one came forward. The rest of his siblings had been adopted, and he was the only one left. It was a story that tugged at my heartstrings.

A Glimmer of Hope

Just as I was getting to know him, the team at the shelter informed me that someone was in the lobby, eager to meet this big puppy. Roger, a man who had been greenlit for a service dog, had come with his kids to see if this puppy would be a good fit for their family. I watched with bated breath, hoping for a connection.

The First Meeting

The initial interaction was heartwarming. The kids seemed to take to him immediately. But as with any first meeting, there were moments of uncertainty. A sudden hug from one of the kids could have gone either way, but it turned out to be a moment of bonding. Just when I thought everything was going smoothly, the puppy had a little potty accident. But to my surprise, it didn’t deter the family.

A New Beginning

The ultimate decision rested with Roger. As a dad myself, I understood the weight of such a choice. After what felt like an eternity, Roger finally spoke up, “We’re taking him home.” The joy in the room was palpable. The kids even got to name their new furry friend – they chose “Primal.”
