All of the dogs in this shelter ended up getting adopted — except for two Pitties, Bowman and Papa. It’s usually the smaller dogs who go first with the Pit Bulls at the very end, and that’s why these two sat here watching all of their friends get adopted leaving them behind. But that made Joe work even harder to find them homes, and he made them each a promise to do so!
Bowman and Papa could only sit in their kennels as they watched the other dogs received their orange adoption slips, and Joe swears they picked up on that. So the shelter worker took it upon himself to spoil these dogs until their day would come.
His goal was to show them that this was all temporary while also providing the mental and physical stimulation they needed to stay healthy. He’d even come in on the weekends to see how they were doing and give them attention!
And wouldn’t you know it, that day would finally come. The hard work and persistence would all pay off! Being able to bring that orange slip to each of their kennels meant mission accomplished, and Bowman and Papa couldn’t have been happier to meet their new families! 🙂
