People often get a second dog so their first dog can have a companion. Also, couples who don’t plan on having children prefer to adopt multiple dogs instead. Tia Torres, the founder of the Villalobos Rescue Center, met with potential adopters who fit the criteria mentioned above.
The couple who met with Tia brought their dog, Whitney, with them. Since they wanted to get a companion for her, the decision is solely up to her. Whoever Whitney likes the most will be adopted by the couple.
The first dog Tia introduced was a pit bull puppy named Tacoma. He was a very energetic dog with a big personality. Tia doesn’t usually introduce younger puppies to a middle-aged dog, but she made an exception for Whitney.
Whitney seemed disinterested in Tacoma after a few seconds of meeting him. Tia decided to proceed with the next dog after seeing no sign of a mutual connection. The next dog was Rock, a dog who has a lot of history in the rescue center.
Rock was rescued a long time ago and had remained in the shelter for seven years. He grew up in the streets, and it took him a while to trust people. Coincidentally, he was Whitney’s best friend when she was in the shelter.
Tia wanted to see if the two dogs would recognize each other. The moment they saw each other, they immediately became excited. Tia could only describe the encounter as something magical.
After a successful meeting, the couple went home. They had to wait for a few days so the shelter can deliver Rock to their home. One employee transported Rock to his new home, where he can enjoy the rest of his life with Whitney.
The two dogs greeted each other with the same enthusiasm as before. The couple was sure they made the right decision that day. Tails were wagging, and people were smiling during Rock’s adoption day.
