Humans adopt pets, but in most cases, the animals are the ones who actually choose their adoptive families. Some even go a step further, making their prospective owner fall head over heels for them at the least expected moment. That was what this beautiful rescue dog did after seeing the news reporter whom she chose to give her heart to.
The journalist was at the shelter to cover a story, which was not related to the dog. He never thought that, on that day, he was about to meet someone he would soon consider family.
Out of the many rescue dogs who were curiously watching the reporter, one particular pup did not hesitate to approach him. She courageously walked up to the man and gave him the biggest and most heartfelt hug. The pup’s sweet gesture caught everyone by surprise.
Most likely, the dog’s actions got the journalist a bit confused. Despite that, he happily encouraged her behavior and gently petted her head. With his reassurance, the sweet pup decided to cling onto the man’s leg tighter. She even leaned her head against him.
The poor dog seemed tired of living at the shelter without a family to call her own. Therefore, she decided to take the matters into her own paws. When the sweet pup realized that the right man was already right in front of her, she took the chance and did everything she could not let it go.
Luckily, the dog’s heartwarming interaction with the news reporter was caught on camera. It was only around 30 seconds long, but definitely one of the most beautiful hugs. The pup chose the journalist to be her family, and she made sure that he would not say no. Their connection was undeniable, so the journalist ended up adopting the dog and taking her home.
