You never forget the day that you bring home a beloved pet for the first time. For those adopting a rescue dog, this moment is twice as emotional! Many shelter pups have never known a comfortable, loving home, and their reactions to being adopted can vary. Some pets are quick to explore their new environment, while others are less trusting. However, a little space, some time, and lots of love can go a long way toward making them feel more at home. Plus, you never forget the beautiful moment when your shelter dog arrives home for the first time!
We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite videos of shelter dogs seeing their new homes for the first time. If you don’t have a box of tissues with you right now, you might want to grab one. These sweet pooches’ responses to coming home are sure to melt your heart!
1. This pooch wanted to start with a tour of the house.
2. She was so sleepy, she couldn’t keep her eyes open!
3. Jumping into that puddle made him feel right at home.
4. Once she figured out the stairs, it was all smooth sailing.
5. It took him a while to open up, but he was worth the wait!
We hope that seeing these beautiful adoption videos made your heart happy today! Shelter dogs may need a little extra care and attention in their new home, but the love they give back is priceless.
