This puppy just experienced his happiest day ever. He didn’t think this opportunity would arise when he was going through his darkest times, but it did. He can’t believe he finally received a bed after spending his entire life on the streets, according to top13.
He goes by the name of Ezra, a cute dog that cried uncontrollably when given the cozy bed he would use going forward. His satisfaction was evident in the broad smile on his face.
He lived at the Fairfield County Animal Shelter after being rescued from the streets. His nervousness and fear were evident when he was taken off the street. With the help of the shelter staff, he was able to overcome his fear and choose a family. He did this by using a very specific technique.
“The hot dogs were the key to our relationship. We always had hot dogs when we passed by Ezra’s kennel. What started with throwing the hot dogs slowly became him gently taking them out of our hands,” Samira Yaghi, rescue coordinator at the shelter, told The Dodo.
His attitude changed right then and there. Ezra started to get used to his new life in the shelter and get ready to find a new place to live. Five months after being saved, he took his first stroll and was already allowing himself to be loved.
“Since then, it’s been uphill. Every time we approach, he bounces and is animated, eager to say “hello” and give us kisses, Yaghi said.
Ezra spotted some dog beds in a donation the shelter received and instantly fell in love with one. He chose to lay down on one of the mattresses while they had one of their routine strolls. That bed and the way it made him feel had captured his heart.
Ezra established a family on social media thanks to his smile. After a brief journey, he is now settled in New York. Now that he has a new family, Ezra can laugh more frequently. He won’t be without affection any longer.
