The mother of a 5-year-old girl was going to get a pet from a shelter. Then she asked her daughter how they would choose it. To which the little girl replied:
“I don’t care what that dog looks like, how old it will be, or what sex it will be. I picked the unluckiest one who has lived in the shelter the longest!”
The woman was very touched by this wise answer. And it’s true that young and very small animals in the shelter are easier to find owners. But it’s not so easy for the big ones.
And so it happened. The mother and daughter brought home a large aggressive male dog who had lived in the shelter for more than 3 years, and no one took him home because he was considered “problematic.
The woman says:
“This big guy must have had the hopelessness of finding an owner again, and it must have lived in his soul to the fullest. I will not tell you what grateful eyes this redheaded giant has been looking at my daughter for five years! Now it’s our own native ginger monster, affectionate, obedient, kissable and cuddly!”
The once vicious and aggressive dog has turned into an affectionate pet and trusted friend.
It should be noted that the girl made the right choice, because the heart never fails in such cases…
