At the Stanislaus Animal Services Agency in Modesto, California, volunteer and animal advocate Nancy Klein had been leaving the shelter Saturday evening at closing time when she saw a dog clinging to his owner as the devoted pup was being surrendered.
“It’s like he ‘knew’ the way he clung to his owner,” stated Nancy. “I had to catch my breath. As I asked why he (the owner) said they had to move and he wasn’t allowed. I took out my phone and well …you can see for yourself.”
Meet Moses; who happens to be one of the sweetest dogs Nancy says she has ever met. Within seconds, the friendly boy had crawled into her lap as if begging to be taken home.
“My heart literally sank,” Nancy continued. “He wanted to meet everyone there, including the boy and his mom who were in the lobby. It took everything in me not to just take him home.”
Moses had been adopted from the shelter one year ago. He has lived with children, dogs and cats. He is gentle, and anyone having the privilege to adopt this boy could have a best friend forever.
