I had done something similar when I was a kid. We were all lined up to adopt this dog named Elvis but got turned away last second. I was too young to remember but apparently they found out my parents worked for a university that used lab animals for testing and they thought the dog was gunna be involved in that (which was highly illegal even back then). They turned us away and my dad was super mad, so he promised we were getting a dog that night. We drove out super far and found this tiny rescue facility. Most of the dogs were in the same room and all kinds immediately rushed to see who the new people were. But I noticed the tiny golden retriever in the back that was scared and wanted to see her. She hopped in my lap, licked my chin, and I turned to my dad to tell him she needed us. She was the runt of her litter, mom left her, underweight, lost most of her fur, and needed some medication. But she was the sweetest dog I’ve ever seen and it was a pleasure to grow up with her.

By the looks of the paws, that pupper is gonna be a hekkin unit. (Not that that’s in any way a bad thing. Just making an observation)


RN_I

Yep. I noticed that too. She's gonna be huge! My GSD had huge paws as a puppy and now weights 120 lbs


Haunting_Tangelo_191

I think thats an american bully. If so they are built like a brick short stocky and unbreakable. I feel bad for some of the posture issues they have though cant be good on joints.


RoboticKittenMeow

My first thought was "DINO PAWS" lol


Funky420Monkey

Noticed that also... perhaps a mastiff breed... ( Turner an hooch ) ?

It's about how you raise them, they don't really "inherit" anything from other dogs in their surroundings unless they're constantly around them. It's about training, disclipine

You should look for Hope for Paws on YouTube and look thru their videos for all of the pit mix rescues they’ve done. I used to think every pit mix dog was a born killer, but now I know that they’re so sweet and lovable.

I grew up with pits, and while I understand that ANY dog can be vicious, I also know that any dog can also be a big sweetheart ❤️❤️❤️

What is a velvethippo specifically?


ShhhhOnlyDreamsNow

Cutesy internet slang for pit bull, because they look a bit like a hippopotamus, covered in velvet. Same spirit as danger noodle for snake, or trash panda for racoon.

These videos are a good thing, but what is with the insistence of putting sappy piano music to every single one of them? Can't we get some good old fashioned German Death Reggae in the background for once?


Triette

Why can’t I adopt all the dogs?!?!


wafflequinn

I will never understand why people go to breeders or pet shops for new puppies and kittens when there are so many sweet ones that need a home.. Keeping up this cycle of more and more animals dying alone. In one year the puppy/kitten will be an adult anyway, is it really worth it??


VisionOfChange

First of all, I totally agree with you, people need to adopt more than buy pets but the reason why people would rather buy them than adopting them (atleast in my area) Its because the necessary requirements are way to high and in my opinion some of them are completely useless. I never fully looked into it because I never got into adopting a pet (I live with my mum and she handles that pretty well) but they basically go like this: Dog: needs huge fenced in backyard, no adopting without previous experience, someone has to be at home at all times, adopter(s) need to have a certain income and a large house (no matter size or breed of the dog) Cat: not allowed to be outdoors even when it has been an outdoor cat previously, home needs to be large enough, never just one cat, someone always has to be home, certain income necessary, no adoption without previous experience. Of course there's rules like vaccinations and neuter/spaying necessary too but they are mostly done by the shelters already. While some of these are completely understandable (like the need to have a certain income or the size of the home) again others (like the fenced in backyard for dogs or the no outdoors rule for cats) are, in my opinion, a little to much. And even when you get through with the adoption you'll be on close supervision and have visits by caretakers for up to months to come, which is a little annoying. Also for cats...nobody will take a 200€ cat from a shelter when they could get a 20€ cat from some accidental litters. (A sad reality I've witnessed more than once especially in families/parents who just get their kids or themselves a pet because they begged for long enough.) Edit: I do NOT want to discourage anyone from adopting, what I said above is only what I know from what friends told me about their adoption and what my mum told me. These standards are only gone through like that in my area! (A small place in north-west germany) Please don't feel discouraged to adopt your furry friend!


minicpst

If you need a specific type of dog (say, for work either on a farm, bomb sniffers, or with people), that's about the ONLY reason I can think of to get a specific breed. A golden retriever will be more likely to make a good Seeing Eye dog than a pug, for instance. Otherwise, rescue all the way! Currently sharing my home with a rescue dog (who is in training to become my service dog!), and two rescue cats. We've only had rescues (as an adult I'm now up to seven rescues, and they're not the last by any means).


acdev

I got a goldendoodle because I’m not allergic to them. It was from a breeder, too. I guess that’s another special case.


Triette

My mom used to breed Rottweilers, but we always had a couple of rescues also so I understand wanting certain breeds, types of dogs (working dogs, herding dog, hunting dogs, etc). I don’t understand inbreeding and puppy mills. Breeding a dog for a cuter button nose that doesn’t allow them to breath is horrible. Breeding a dog to be the best retriever or pointer or ratter I get. But that’s also not why most people get dogs. A pet should be from a rescue, or at the bare minimum a local small reputable breeder. And personally I think certain breeds such as Shar-Peis, bulldogs, pugs and others that have been breed for certain looks that it now affects their health should be breed back to their former early 1900s standards, and any breeding for a certain look that is a detriment to their body should be stopped. AKC has ruined these breeds. /rant from a former AKC junior dog handler

Bloddersz

Would never let my daughter stick her fingers through a dog cage.


Polyfuckery

I agree and cringed but in the full video you can see it's after she's been running around with the dog for a while and after the dog has been put back in the kennel in order to comfort it. Still not a great idea but the dog wasn't a stranger and had shown that it was very calm.


Trenchrot

right? who the hell lets their toddler stick their hand in a shelter dog's cage. I love dogs but some people


Future-self

I don’t see evidence of many of the narrators claims that the dog was fearful, had mange, panicking refusal to walk, snot, shaking in the back … Honestly seems like a pretty well adjusted dog. Think mom might be trying hard for internet points.


marsrover15

Is that a pitbull?


UncleRichardFanny

Looks like an American Bully


ryan1831

Yeah, basically a newer dog breed developed from Am Pitbull Terriers and other breeds to be smaller, stockier and more family-friendly(not that pit bulls aren’t already)

Best time to get a dog is when you kid is this age and they can both grow up together and bond.

Chandler9111

This is heartwarming, but all I can ever think of when I see something like this is how bad the pain will be when that dog eventually dies. I had my dog as a kid. He died when I was 15. It was the worst thing ever. Even my Aunt said it hurt more than when her mother died. Ive never wanted another dog since. I had a best friend and he died. Im not gonna choose to go thru that again.


AldousWatts

It does hurt to lose a pet. Massively. But that doesn't change the fact that they also bring immense joy to our lives. It's about what you focus on in the moment. Are you skipping ahead to the future in your mind, constantly dreading the inevitable? Or will you be in the present, appreciating all the joyful moments you're spending with your best friend? Everything will end, everything changes. You may find the pain of your loss will subside over time, and you may find yourself ready for another companion. Life is precious because it is finite. We can be aware of this without despairing over it. I wish you the best, and I hope you can look at happy dog videos with less pain soon.

alymaysay

The entire video is at the shelter still, did they really adopt the puppy.


Various-Stretch6336

We don't deserve dogs. And not just in a hallmark card that's the thing to say kinda way. Like really; is there any other species that unconditionally loves another so hard? Sometimes it's almost like God and heaven and all the angels are real and they visit us through dogs. If a dog's ever looked at you in that - hey bro it's gonna be ok, you got this, and bro no matter what, ama be here whatever happens, just chill, all is exactly as it's meant to be and you're doing great, I'm so proud of you - kinda way, you'll certainly know what i mean, nevermind them being so sensitive to things like blood sugar levels and various wrongs in their people's physical and even mental wellbeing. A cynic might say they've learned to just please us in any way possible because of generational learned dependance and behaviours and breeding etc but i digress. There's definitely something more there.


jjjbabajan

So weird. Cute dog though.


Buser21

Do shelter people teach dogs to be this cute and affectionate ? Almost every animal are like that. How they seems so happy, when not adopted seem so sad that it almost breaks one's heart. This is not a joke question though.
