Sweet shelter dog hugs reporter until he adopts him

July 6th, 2020

Even though there are countless dogs, cats, and other furry friends living happily in their forever homes, there are many more out there in shelters, pounds, and rescue centers, waiting and hoping for their second chance at happiness.

Each and every day, more dogs and cats are found on the streets and taken to these places, waiting for their time to come.

And for one lovely pup, that time came when a news reporter stepped into the shelter and said hello.

The reporter wasn’t planning to adopt a dog that day. He was simply covering a news story and carrying out his usual work, with a camera hung around his neck, ready to snap some photos for a piece he was working on. Little did he know that the day had a big surprise in store!

Moments after stepping into the shelter, the reporter noticed a dog walking towards him.

The man didn’t have any special treats or anything else that might have lured the dog over; he just had a kind face, and the pup wanted some company.

As soon as the dog arrived beside him, it leapt up onto his hind legs and hugged him lovingly, offering the man all of its affection.

With a sad little look in its eyes, the lonely dog hugged him tight, and the man reached down to pet it, stroking its floppy ears and patting its head.

The reporter probably assumed that the dog would simply move on after a little attention, but the pup didn’t let go!

As the seconds ticked by, the adorable dog continued to hold on tight to the man’s leg.

Even when the man momentarily lifted his hand away and stopped petting the pup entirely, it just didn’t want to leave him alone.

Luckily for us, this whole charming scene was captured on camera by one of the man’s colleagues, and as the camera zooms in close to the pup’s eyes, we can see all of its love and hope behind its gaze.

Clearly, the poor pup just wants to be loved. Like so many other shelter animals, it just wants some companionship and affection, and it seems that this dog sensed something special about that reporter that day.

Well, the doggo’s sixth sense proved to be right on the money! The man was so touched by the dog’s gentle nature that he simply couldn’t just leave it behind.

He decided right there and then that he would adopt the dog and bring it home.
