Have you ever wondered what it would be like to meet your twin? You would probably have a lot of questions for him or her. One dog was on a walk with his owner when they came across a dog that looked just like him.
He was instantly interested in the other dog and wanted him to come home with their family.
Bethany Coleman was walking her dog Rogue when they had a strange encounter. She shared the story, saying:
“Rogue and I were out for a nice long walk to our local farmers market when we saw Beast. He was there with Last Hope K9 Rescue and a bunch of other dogs that were all up for adoption. What made me want to rescue Beast over the other dogs was that he looked just like Rogue. They’re both cairn terrier mixes, Rogue’s mom was a lab/pit mix and her dad a cairn and with Beast we’re just not sure, it just has cairn mix I. His paperwork but we think he’s mixed with Basset due to his body type, he looks like a pig and has even been mistaken for a pig a couple times.”
Bethany and her boyfriend had been thinking about getting another dog, but they weren’t actually looking for one yet.
Bethany wasn’t sure she wanted one, and they already had several pets at home.
“Tyson, my boyfriend aka the dad, really wanted another dog but I was so against the idea. We already had 2 senior cats that I brought into the relationship and our puppy Rogue. I was not about to add one more animal to the mix, who in the right mind would ever let us rent an apartment from them.”
But when Bethany saw the dog, she instantly in love with him.
She knew he was supposed to be a part of their family, and she could tell by Rogue’s reaction that he wanted him to come with them just as badly. She said:
“He was Rogue’s twin! They also got along and immediately started playing with one another. So right then and there I started filling out the paperwork. I even have the first picture ever of him when he was at the market.”
Bringing Beast home wasn’t easy.
The couple wondered how their other pets would react. Beast was the biggest and felt like he should be in charge. Rogue made sure that didn’t happen. Eventually, even the cats came around and learned to love and accept him. Bethany said:
“It took about a month for everyone, including the cats, to find their groove. To be fair we got them the same exact toys thinking that would solve everything. Nope! Rogue always and actually to this day wants whatever Beast has. It’s funny to watch when we give them treats. Halfway through whatever it is they’ll switch and go for each other’s toy. But at heart, they’re best friends!”
Now, Beast fits right in, and everyone gets along.
Since the family lives in Hawaii, they spend a lot of time on the beach. Beast loves to play in the water and in the sand. He and Rogue also love to snuggle on the couch. Bethany knows that she made the right choice to bring Beast home with her that day.
“We’re gonna also get him a life jacket but teach him how to surf on a boogie board.”
Rogue ended up with a new friend, and the family ended up with a new pet.
Now, they have an even number of cats and dogs. Their story just goes to show you that sometimes, you don’t know you need something until it finds you. These pups were meant to be together. Now, they can play and snuggle as much as they want.
