Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the doom and gloom of politics and hear a nice, feel-good story about something else. In case you need that boost, here’s one for you: a cute dog who has had 14 adoptions fall through might finally get to leave the animal shelter and head home with a family.
Such is the story out of Raleigh, North Carolina, where a dog named Ronald needs some help getting adopted, as the SPCA of Wake County posted on Facebook, saying:
Help us break Ronald’s unlucky streak! 14 adoptions have fallen through for this lovely guy — mostly due to being too big/strong. It’s true, he’s a big boy! But for his large frame, he only weighs 63 lbs. Ronald knows his commands, takes treats super gently, and is 100% sweet. He truly is a very good boy. Now and then, if he gets excited, he might stand up and put his front paws on you or become a little mouthy. But he is a big puppy, after all! As long as you have reasonably sturdy footing, you’ll have no problem with Ronald. Plus, he loves treats and practicing his tricks, so he’ll be a great student for any training.
If you think you can handle a little extra size and want to bust this guy out of here for good, find information about adoption at spcawake.org/dogs
Well, it looks like the post might have succeeded in getting Ronald adopted, as local media reported, saying:
So on Wednesday, the SPCA shared a post advertising Ronald on Facebook. In about 24 hours, more than 11,000 people shared his story. Ranlet said the SPCA received around 300 combined messages and calls about adopting him.
Needless to say, animal lovers were touched by his story. Things look good for Ronald to find a home very soon.
“His whole bad luck streak turned around very quickly,” Ranlet said. “We’re so overwhelmed by the incredible response.”
