Dogs are ultimately considered as man’s best friend. Aside from the fact that they are extremely loyal and incredibly brave, they are also capable of giving their humans unconditional love. Sadly, some humans take their dogs for granted and decide to abandon them.
Such is the story of this dog. His current family adopted him from a shelter. All of them immediately fell in love with him due to the fact that he is both friendly and smart.
The whole family, especially the kids, loved playing with him due to his energetic nature. With this, they treated the dog as their own family member.
However, the dog’s owners noticed something odd about him. Every night when all of them go to sleep, the dog just stays outside their door, on the same spot, just staring at them until they wake up the following day.
The entire family was bothered with this behavior that they decided to take their dog to the vet to get checked. However, the veterinarians couldn’t find anything wrong with the dog since he is in perfectly good shape.
Because the owner’s wanted to get some answers, they went to the shelter where they found their furry friend. This is where they learn about his heartbreaking past.
According to the staff, the former owner of the dog quietly woke up one night and took the sleeping pet to the shelter. When the dog woke up, he was terrified to see that he is in a completely different place, far from his humans. Since then, the dog never slept at night for fear that he might be taken away again.
His new owners were heartbroken when they found out his story and vowed to gain the dog’s trust. The following night, they bought a basket for the dog to sleep in right beside their bed in order to gain his trust. After a few nights, the dog finally closed his eyes to sleep peacefully beside his master’s bed.
