An Unexpected Dog Adoption Is Just What You Need

Walking into PetSmart is a dangerously adorable game.

Reddit user ObjectiveCopley wasn't planning on adopting a dog this past weekend, but that's precisely what they did. / Via

"I went to Petsmart today to get some stuff for my hamster, and I noticed all these dogs lined up... I've been debating on a dog but kept telling myself "this summer." Out of all the 20 or so dogs they had, this one stood out, he seemed sad and on display :( Super quiet, etc. I read about him and he is a 2-3 year old beagle mix. I opened his cage and started playing with him and he perked right up."

One walk was about to change both of their lives. / Via

"...The lady came over and asked me if I wanted to take him on a walk, and I said sure! He seemed happy he was out of that cage for sure...

Midway through the walk was a tree in a grass patch, so I sat down and played with him a bit and I knew I had to take him with me."

He even got to pick out toys that were all his own! / Via

"...after a small adoption fee, he's mine! We went into the petstore and I wanted to se what kind of toys he responded too, I ended up getting him 6 toys that he grabbed at :)"

Riding in the car was no biggie at all. / Via

"Here he is in my brand new car... he better feel special for being the first mess maker! (Shedding...), I went Target immediately and got a snuggie to go over the seat for the future."

And look! He's fitting right in with a nap at his new home! / Via

"I took him on a few walks and we drove around town a bit, suffice to say he's passed out. He hasn't left my side and is sleeping under my computer table :)"
