Sometimes it can be hard for rescue dogs to find the right home… but sometimes fate intervenes and they stumble upon just the right person at just the right time.
That was the case for one woman, who had no intention of taking in any more pets—but one look at this dog and she knew it was just meant to be.
Bethany Coleman, from Boston, loves animals, but when her boyfriend wanted to adopt another dog, she was opposed to the idea, as they had a lot of pets in their home already: two cats and a puppy named Rogue.
“I was not about to add one more animal to the mix,” she told Bored Panda. “Who in the right mind would ever let us rent an apartment from them?”
But in 2018, Bethany went to the local farmer’s market with Rogue, and everything changed.
Last Hope K9 Rescue was there with some of their adoptable dogs looking for a home. Even though she wasn’t looking for a new pet, one of them immediately caught Bethany’s attention.
It was a dog named Beast, and like Rogue he was a cairn terrier mix. As the two started playing together, it was like they were related.
“He was Rogue’s twin!” Bethany said. “They also got along and immediately started playing with one another.”
She was convinced that they were meant to be brothers… and immediately started filing the paperwork for adoption.
She brought Beast home, and the two have been inseparable. While they sometimes fight over toys, they’re definitely best friends.
“They love chasing squirrels, into cosplay and celebrating each other’s birthdays,” Bethany wrote on the dogs’ joint Instagram account.
Bethany told Bored Panda that “it took about a month for everyone, including the cats, to find their groove,” but despite her reservations about having so many pets in their apartment, things seem to have worked out well.
The whole family recently relocated from Boston to Honolulu, where the pets have plenty of room to play (and surf!) in the sunny weather.
Sometimes pets just come into our lives at the perfect moment. Thank you to this family for opening their hearts to another dog! It’s clear that it was meant to be.
