Dog Owner Tried to Return Puppy to Rescue Centre as ‘It Didn’t Match Sofa’ | 22 Words

Dogs are way too good for this world, they give us so much love and sadly some get little in return, in fact, thousands of dogs are abandoned every day.

But one story of a dog's trip to the pound has truly shaken the internet this week ...

Is there anything better than a dog?

These adorable creatures are basically the best things on earth. If you’re ever feeling down in the dumps, a dog is guaranteed to make you feel better.

They are truly man's best pals.

Whether they’re causing mischief, giving us those puppy eyes when they want a treat, or taking up the entire sofa, many of us couldn’t live without our furry friends.

Once you become a dog-parent, there's no going back...

It’s hard to imagine a life without having a pooch to come home to.

In an age where the internet is so divided, there's one thing we can all agree on...

How utterly amazing (and adorable) our 4-legged friends are.

Sadly, so many pooches are lost, abandoned or dumped - being left to fend for themselves.

Though there is some light at end of the tunnel for many of these doggos - who end up getting rescued and eventually adopted into new families.

Many animal shelters are simply overflowing...

And, according to statistics from the Humane Society, 6 to 8 million cats and dogs enter shelters here in the U.S. each year.

But these animal shelters aren't always the safest places for these animals.

Millions of these animals are euthanized every year due to the lack of space and people interested in adopting.

It's a devastating reality of animal homelessness.

And statistics show that, out of the 3 million cats and dogs euthanized in shelters every year, around 2.4 million are actually healthy, and would have been fit for adoption with a new owner.

It's unthinkable why anyone would be so cruel to an animal.

The internet cannot believe this bizarre story!

Claire Horton, the former CEO of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in south London, spoke out about the story.

"Usually it will be a very genuine change in circumstances [why people return], so it could be an illness. Someone might die."

"It might be a relationship breakdown, and people get divorced, and we see that a lot."


"We'll get people who will bring them back because they hadn't thought it was going to wee on the carpet or chew the bottom of their door."

"We've even had a dog come back once because it didn't match the sofa!


We hope this poor pup has found happiness now!
