Sweet seven-month-old Harvey was the last pup left at the shelter. The shelter had successfully adopted out all of their dogs and found their forever homes, and sweet Harvey had to watch all of them leave one by one. He was overlooked for four months until his day finally came.

Finally, the day had come! @adoptingdogs announced that Harvey was finally on hold to be adopted! When he went to tell Harvey, the pup was so excited he could barely hold it in!

The next day, Harvey got to meet his human for the first time and got to head to his forever home. He ran into the arms of his new human and the first day of his new life began.


Congratulations Harvey!!! #fyp #foryou #dogvideo #shelterdog #dogrescue #adoption #woosterohio #dog
