Dante and Diego's adoption is the feel-good story that we need right now



On Sunday, I posted that Dante and Diego, the two bonded senior labs that belonged to Chile, the longtime 12th Street resident who recently passed away, had been adopted together by a couple in Brooklyn.

Reps from Animal Haven, the nonprofit animal shelter, took the dogs in on Nov. 27. Chile's neighbors rallied to keep Dante and Diego together following his death.

Animal Haven shared the adoption story on Instagram:

The couple recently had to say goodbye to their senior lab. As lifelong dog lovers, their home was empty and quiet, and they decided it was time for a new addition.

So they came to Animal Haven looking for a new puppy. But after seeing Dante and Diego and hearing their story, they knew in their hearts that those old souls were the dogs for them. It was fate.

Dante and Diego are now happily home, less than one week after losing the only home they'd ever known. We are beyond thrilled!

"This is what we dream of for all of our animals," said Jenny Coffey, Animal Haven's director of community engagement, who facilitated the rescue. Our heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone in this amazing, animal-loving NYC community who shared and participated in Dante and Diego's journey!

This is great. Animal Haven, everyone in the EV dog-owning community that helped, and these two all deserve applause.

Something in my eye...allergies...something stuck in my throat...

I'll miss those sweet faces, but thank God another neighborhood gets to enjoy them now. Thanks to all who helped them, and may the new foursome of hoomans and pups have long and happy lives together.

Those dogs are very expressive. Truly great news that they got new owners. Stories like this are rare in these times of trouble

If I only had room. This story would make anyone adopt a dog.

LOOK AT THOSE BABY FACES

I mentioned this on the other post, but adopting a bonded pair is a magical experience. It’s amazing to be in the presence of animals who have an existing relationship outside you, and yet they want to bring you into it. It’s the definition of family. Bless these wonderful people who adopted these angel puppers.

Finally. Some good news. I am so tired of hearing about Cheeto Face and his latest misdeeds. Its nice to know there are good people in the world who are kind and care. Those dogs are beautiful. And they will get a good home and new set of parents. :)
