Today we present you the touching story of Stormy. A very gentle, affectionate and jovial dog. That kind of dog what feels very comfortable around the people, or other dogs, or even with the cats. Anyway, despite all of those qualities he posses, his family decided there’s no place for him anymore. It all happened when his owners found out they’ll gonna have another children. The fifth one!
So our cute little Stormy ended up in a shelter somewhere in Brooklyn.
Alana Guerrin who’s working as a volunteer for Eleventh Hour Rescue showed her disapproval regarding this sad situation.
“He spent all of his life with a family with four children, two [other] dogs — one small, one big — and a cat. Then the woman got pregnant and had her fifth baby, and decided that he was too much,”Alana said.
“You could see the fear and terror in his eyes in that picture [at the shelter], and you could see how brokenhearted he was,” Guerrini said. “I looked at that face, and it absolutely crushed me”
A dog lover, Alana quickly spotted Stormy’s profile, so she decided to rescue him out.
“He was due to be put down at 5 o’clock, and it was 4:58 or 4:59 when we got the word that ‘We’ll let you take him, and he’s officially yours and off of death row”, she said.
And so she did. She took this poor dog to her home in New Jersey until someone will want to adopt him.
“He jumped into my car with no problems,” Guerrini said. “My son had gotten into the passenger seat, and he [Stormy] just climbed up onto my son’s lap, and you could see that with every little wiggle and face kiss that he was thanking him because he knew that he was going to live. He’s an angel.”
And watching the video bellow you’ll see he’s truly and angel!
Then he storied how Stormy behaved when he first saw her son.
“He wanted to sit in my son’s lap the whole time, so my son had to get into the back seat, and he spent an hour and a half riding home on my son’s lap. The only time he got off of it was the dozen times he wanted to kiss me, too,”the woman added.
Both Alana and her son were so impressed about Stormy’s reaction around people.
“He was wrestling with my son, and my son’s hand went into the dog’s mouth … and the dog left his mouth open and slowly backed his head away so he wouldn’t even scratch him,”she said. “That’s when I knew that I was madly in love with this dog.”
“He stayed in the room with him all day and nuzzled up with him,” the woman added. “And when my son got up, he was just following him around. He just wants to interact with people and be loved.”
Anyway, Alana was so confused why his owners just gave up on him like that. Just like we are. Such a playful and cute dog is nothing but a blessing for anyones family.
“He’s a playful, 2-year-old pit bull.I do have to say because he is one of my favorites that I’m very picky, so I need to find the best home out there,” this kind soul added.
Thank you Alana, for being such a good person!
