Pit Bull In Shelter Won’t Leave Her Best Pal, Even When She’s About To Get Forever Home
“Adorable and inseparable, these dogs refused to leave each other behind”
We all know dogs are capable of incredible loyalty—both with us and with each other. These two cute pups, Taco and Merrill, are a perfect example. Pit Bull Merrill, 3, and Chihuahua Taco, 8, crossed paths at Rocket Dog Rescue Shelter.
They spent several years together at the Shelter, “a volunteer based organization…dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned dogs from over crowded animal shelters… [Their] ultimate goal is to create a world where all companion animals have loving and permanent homes and where no good natured dogs, no matter what their age, are killed in shelters because they are considered to be surplus or un-adoptable.”
Quickly, the pooches bonded. While they were there, Merrill had to undergo surgery, and it was touch-and-go for a while, and Taco stuck by her side throughout.
For the whole surgery, the faithful Taco refused to leave Merrill. They were impossible to keep apart from one another; if they were separated, both would whimper and cry until they were back together again.
Soon, Merrill had a chance to show her undying loyalty to her Chihuahua friend. A man came to the Shelter looking for a pet and found himself smitten with Merrill. But the faithful Pit Bull wouldn't be parted from Taco.
When Merrill's potential new dad came to pick her up, she couldn't be quieted. Both she and Taco cried continuously, making it clear they wouldn't be kept apart.
Happily, their potential dad was touched. In the end, he took both Merrill and Taco back with him. And the two loyal pooches were forever thankful that they wouldn’t need to leave each other!
These days, Taco and Merrill are content and happy in their new permanent home. They’re in a loving environment, and best of all, they are living together. The pair are going to be best buds forever, we reckon!
This touching tale shows just how loyal and sweet our doggy friends can be. When they love, they really love, and they do so with all their hearts. How lucky that Merrill and Taco’s new dad was so kind and understanding!
