The perfect example is Stormy, a 2-year-old pit bull, who, despite everything, has never stopped being a friendly, affectionate, and playful dog.
Stormy was part of a large family made up of a couple with their four children, two dogs, and a cat, in addition to him. They all lived in perfect harmony. He was good with children, just as he was with his brothers and even with the cat.
He couldn’t have been happier to be a part of this wonderful core.
Everything was rosy until her owner became pregnant and had her fifth child. This was the moment they decided they couldn’t have it anymore.
The best idea they had to get rid of him was to take him to a shelter in Brooklyn, where Stormy’s fear and sadness could be seen from the moment she took the first step to enter the establishment, a completely different place from where she came.
This is the face of a puppy whose heart was broken.
Alana Guerrini, a volunteer and foster carer for Eleventh Hour Rescue, an organization dedicated to finding homes for shelter dogs, learned about Stormy and rushed to get him out of there fast.
Stormy had only been inside a couple of hours, but he urgently needed to get out.
In this way, Alana and her 16-year-old son went to pick up poor Stormy from the shelter to take him to his home in New Jersey and take care of him until he found a family that could take care of him.
Getting him into the car, Stormy lay on Alana’s son’s lap, wagging his tail and giving him kisses as thanks for getting him out of that cold place. So much so that when he arrived at the house he did not leave him, and as the faithful dog that he is, right where the boy sat, it was where Stormy mounted him and lay on him.
In this video you can see how Stormy was taken to his new temporary home:
Alana instantly realized that he really was a kind and loving dog. She saw how when Stormy played with her son, she avoided touching him with her teeth at all costs to avoid scratching him and hurting him; and when someone was feeling down, Stormy would come over and cuddle up next to them to comfort them.
Although it is a temporary home, Stormy felt much better than in the shelter.
They couldn’t believe how their previous family could have left a dog as special as Stormy, so Alana decided to be very picky about who she gave it to. A dog as wonderful as this little one deserves a family that returns the same love and affection that he has with everyone around him.
It seems really hard to believe that people abandon their pets for such meaningless reasons. Even when! I hope all those creatures have happy endings like Stormy.
