Adopting a dog is a big decision but for most families, it really is the BEST decision! Dogs can add so much to our lives and as we know, there are so many waiting for forever homes.

During an investigation, a 5-year-old dog named Drove was found tied up inside an abandoned house. He was taken in by the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby (HSM&S). As soon as the staff met Drove, he won them all over! His sweet, calm nature and loyal disposition would certainly make him the perfect family pet yet he was passed over time and time again for 7 months!

Then something magical happened!

Drove is enjoying his afternoon nap, not knowing that he's going HOME in a few minutes! His mom just got here and is filling out her final paperwork now!

Newly married couple Morgan and Tyler came in looking to adopt a new dog. Morgan had just lost her Boxer of thirteen years. They both wanted to adopt a rescue so they drove to HSM&S and that is when they met Drove!

It was love at first sight!
“When I received the call that we could adopt him, I was so happy I was holding back tears,” Morgan to The Dodo.
