Just when this German Shepherd thought that all hope is lost because all his fellow shelter dogs have been adopted, the world certainly proved him wrong.
Before arriving at the Arizona Humane Society in Phoenix as a blind 5-year-old severely malnourished dog, Bryan the dog had a heartbreaking backstory – he was abandoned in his previous owner’s backyard, where he stayed alone and starved.
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the shelter arranged an adoption event in hopes of finding the homeless animals they are caring for, their loving and permanent home. So far, 313 out of 314 pets have been successfully adopted, and the remaining one whose name is Bryan was, unfortunately, the only one left unadopted.
Because of Bryan’s partial blindness, the staff figured that it might take a lot longer for him to get adopted. Regardless of slim chances of him being taken into a nurturing home, they did not lose hope and continued praying that someone will consider bringing him home with them. And thankfully, the universe heard their prayers because someone did!
Patti Mooers owned a German Shepherd for a long time. While others often look past animals with disabilities, disabled dogs always seemed to have a special place in her heart, and she proudly shares how she and her husband have taken care of quite a handful of impaired dogs themselves.
When Mooers came across the #314 picture of Bryan, she knew she had to meet him. Odds were in Bryan’s favor because he was taken home right after.
At the moment, the Mooers family happily shares how seemingly contented the new member of their family was, and how he freely runs around in an acre of land without anyone stopping him.
