Once he had his own bed and a plush toy, the pup was fast asleep.
Hero, a dog who spent his life on the streets with his loving but impoverished owner, was finally given the chance of a better life. Realizing he couldn’t provide Hero with the care he deserved, his owner sent him to a rescue organization in California. Due to the high volume of homeless pets, many are transported up to British Columbia to find new homes. Hero was one of the fortunate ones chosen to find a forever family.
Sarah, who works with the homeless, and her husband heard about Hero’s story. It felt like fate. When they met Hero, Sarah instantly fell in love. She remained calm, not wanting to influence her husband’s decision. But the moment Sarah confessed her affection for Hero, her husband agreed, expressing the same feelings.
Finally, the day came for Hero to move into his forever home. Hero, with his muscular body and unique squishy skin that Sarah lovingly described as a “velvety bag of rocks,” immediately won the hearts of his new parents.
Interestingly, Hero isn’t much for exercise. After a short walk, he’s keen to get back home. Perhaps this is because of the many years he spent living outdoors; his new home is his sanctuary.
Hero has a unique way of expressing his love and care. When he’s scared or unwell, he lies down on the bathroom mat, finding comfort in the quiet space. One day, when Sarah was having a tough time, Hero dragged the bath mat to her, providing his kind of comfort. It was truly heartwarming.
Hero’s story is nothing short of remarkable. We’re thrilled that he found such a loving home, and we commend Hero’s previous owner for making the right decision for the dog he loved so dearly.
