North Carolina nurse Kierstin Davis shares the story of how she adopted a 63-pound white puppy named Ronald after he endured 14 failed adoptions in just five weeks.

Speaking to The Washington Post, Davis said he knew he had to act quickly after a post searching for Ronald’s 15th home by the Wake County SPCA went viral.

After submitting an application, Davis, 28, received the happy news that “Ronny” would be returning home to his family on January 12.

“Everything has been going really well in the house,” he said. “He really fits the bill.”

When it comes to why the energetic, playful dog kept being returned, SPCA spokesperson Samantha Ranlet told The Washington Post: “They were all different versions of that combination of being really playful and kind of clumsy and silly and still working.” in his manners. in combination with its large size.”

The outlet didn’t really point out how many families had children, which can also be a huge deciding factor.

Despite his series of failed adoptions, the SPCA team had expanded to like the “sweet and lovable” dog, Ranlet added. This is partly why he asked Facebook for help in spreading the word, writing “Help us damage Ronald’s unfortunate touch! 14 adoptions have failed for this beautiful man, mainly because he is too big/strong.”

“It’s true, he is a huge boy! But for his big build, he only weighs 63 pounds,” Ranlet added. “Ronald knows his orders, he takes the treats very carefully and is 100% sweet. He really he’s a very good boy.

“Once in a while, if he gets excited, he might get up and put his front paws on you or get a little mouthy. But he’s still a huge puppy! As long as you have a reasonably firm position, you won’t have any problems with Ronald. Plus, he loves treats and practicing his tricks, so he will be a fantastic student for any type of training.”

Davis was one of thousands who saw the post.

“I thought, ‘Oh, there’s no chance I’m going to catch it,’” he told The Washington Article. “I’m sure someone will pick it up very quickly. But I applied anyway.”

His good luck was there: Davis, who has two young children, ages 4 and 7, along with a black Australian shepherd he saved a couple of years ago, turned out to be first on the list.

Agreeing to a five-week trial, she brought Ronald back home and surprised her children with the newest member of the family in the living room.

They “just screamed with excitement,” Davis said. “From the beginning, when he saw the kids and the dog, I thought, ‘Oh, he’s the best.’ He is staying’”.
