Adorable Dog with a “Teddy Bear” Face Finally Gets a Loving Home After Being Taken Back to Shelter 7 Times

Animal shelters are safe and caring places for pets who need loving homes. These shelters take care of stray animals until they can find a forever home. Some pets find families quickly and start happy new lives, but others aren’t as fortunate. They end up coming back to the shelter several times while they wait to find the perfect home. Today, let’s meet Martin and hear his moving story.

Martin is a super adorable dog at the SPCA of Wake County. However, while many of his buddies find new families and leave the shelter, Martin has been there for quite a while. Even though he’s been adopted a few times, those situations didn’t work out for him.

Before coming to the shelter, Martin’s 89-year-old owner had to give him up because he felt he couldn’t give Martin the care he deserved. Samantha Ranlet, who works in marketing at the SPCA, told The Dodo, “His [dad] was 89 years old and reached a point where he couldn’t provide the life that he felt Martin deserved.”

Samantha went on to say, “He wanted a better life for him.” Even though the reason was really sad, it highlights the importance of finding a loving home for Martin to spend his golden years.

Even though he’s quite old, Martin is a friendly buddy who quickly settled into his new surroundings. Ranlet noticed, “He adapted quite well. I’m not sure if he understood what was happening, but right from day one, he was this joyful, laid-back, really kind older guy with a teddy bear-like face.”

Still, Martin’s journey to find a forever home had its share of challenges. He was adopted multiple times, but he always ended up returning to the shelter. In just two months, he came back seven times. Unfortunately, Martin’s heartworm infection and the challenges of taking care of an elderly dog could have been the reasons behind this.

Yet, the shelter team stayed sure that Martin would discover his perfect match. They had faith that a family was waiting for him out there somewhere. To assist in his quest for a forever home, the shelter shared Martin’s story on their Facebook page.

They shared, “Martin really is the best boy. His former owner said he is extremely gentle, especially with kids — Martin used [to] cuddle up with their grandkids so they could lie their heads on him for a nap. He’s great with people of all ages, including seniors, gets along with dogs of all sizes and energy levels, and is housetrained and crate-trained. Martin is a bit hard of hearing (he’s 10 years old), but he still knows some tricks and loves being rewarded with treats.”

Martin showed how powerful social media can be. The post got almost 3,000 shares and became really popular, leading to the shelter getting a ton of adoption requests in just two days. And guess what? One of those interested adopters was a couple who had experience taking care of older dogs. Martin’s age and health problems didn’t discourage them.

Ranlet shared, “They just fell in love with him and his teddy bear energy.”

Because of the post’s success, Martin even became a bit of a local star. The SPCA of Wake County shared a funny story as a result: “…shortly after Martin’s family left the SPCA and took him down to the pet store, the pet store employees recognized him right away and said, “Is that Martin?! “.”

The SPCA of Wake County staff is glad that Martin has finally found a permanent home, even though they do miss their furry friend with the teddy bear-like face.

A Dog Heroically Stays Inside a Burning House, Refusing to Leave as He Protects Four Small Friends That Are Also Trapped Inside

Who says dogs don’t like cats? People always think that dogs and cats are ‘natural’ enemies and the story below will prove us wrong. This story might be one of the most unusual rescue stories ever.

A Jack Russell mix dog named Leo risked his life to protect and save four newborn kittens from house fire in Melbourne, Australia. When firefighters were trying to prevent the flames spread in the house, they discovered a dog still inside the home. Firefighters had to dodge fallen power lines to reach the dog.

Leo was found lying unconscious on the floor. They lifted him up and were in total shock of what they found beneath him! The dog had placed his body over kittens to keep them safe until help could arrive. Miraculously, the four kittens were unharmed, thanks to Leo. Firefighters rushed the pets outside where Leo was given oxygen. He is now feeling well.

Watch the video to find out! Please ‘SHARE’ to pass on this story to a friend or family member if you also think that Leo is a hero!
