When an adorable pitbull named Smiley heard the news that his family was having a baby, he thought he’d find himself wagging his tail so much out of happiness now that he has someone to look after. But his dreams of being the protector of the baby would unfortunately be gutted away once his family decided to surrender him to the shelter instead.
At the shelter, Smiley was visibly confused and anxious because he thought his family shared the unconditional love he had for them. The poor doggo was left heartbroken because he was looking forward to playing with the baby and making sure he was protected at all times.
As if what Smiley’s been through wasn’t enough, the pooch was put on the shelter’s kill list because he couldn’t find a forever family immediately due to his unusually nervous behavior. But he wasn’t always like this. Clearly, the pooch was still distressed from losing a home and a family in an instant.
Knowing that time wasn’t on Smiley’s side, a group of rescuers called Pound Hounds Res-Q dedicated themselves to getting the adorable pitbull a loving home that would surely love him with all their hearts. To temporarily take Smiley off the shelter’s kill list, a woman named Olena Kagui stepped in to foster the sweet pooch while the organization looked for his permanent home.
Smiley was initially timid at Olena’s home because his trust had already been broken by his previous family. The poor pooch obviously didn’t want to have his heart broken the second time around.
The pooch’s behavior was no problem for Olena because she knew what Smiley had gone through. Clearly, all he needed was love and affection to show him that everything was turning out for the better. But in the process, Olena herself fell in love with the pooch and eventually adopted Smiley for good.
