This amazing story has already softened the hearts of thousands of animal lovers around the world. Its message is clear: a dog’s loyalty is a gift for its owner and that it should never be taken for granted…
A family adopted a dog from the animal shelter. They took the animal home. After the dog proved to be a gentle companion, the family knew that they had made an excellent choice.
The family took the cute dog for long walks every day. They played fetch in the park and taught the dog how to do some interesting tricks. It appeared that they have chosen the perfect dog. But, there was one thing about the dog that made it a bit strange: the dog sit at the side of the parents’ bed and stare at them until they fell asleep every night. When the parents woke up again in the morning, the dog would be sitting there, staring at them. The family didn’t feel like they were in danger. A few weeks later, the family realized that they had never really seen the dog sleep. The dog had snoozed occasionally with half-shut eyes, but they had never seen it really sleep.
The family began to worry that the dog was sick, so they visited the vet. But, the vet didn’t find anything wrong with it.
Although they heard their dog was physically healthy, they continued to ask themselves why the dog was acting so strangely. They decided to find out more about their dog’s past. They went to the animal shelter where they found the dog. When they explain the workers at the animal shelter about the dog’s nightly behavior, they received an explanation that melted their hearts.
The previous owner waited until the dog was asleep and took it to the animal shelter. When the dog woke up, it was in the shelter and it never saw its owner again.
When the new owners heard this, they were broken. They rushed home and put their dog’s bed beside theirs. They wanted to show the dog that it is now a member of their family and will always be with them.
From that day on, the dog slept in the parents’ bedroom. The dog needed a few weeks to understand what the gesture had meant, but soon it was sleeping soundly, sometimes even 2-3 hours before its owners went to bed. The dog slept better than ever before, because it knew it had finally found a real home.
