Wilbur’s happy in his new home

Categories: Adoption Stories

Hi, my family and I just wanted to send you guys an update on Wilbur. We adopted him on Sunday, January 21st. It hasn’t even been a week yet, but he is thriving. He’s opened up so much since we first met him.

I saw Wilbur’s post on the Pasadena Humane Society’s Facebook page and fell in love with those big, brown eyes. I called immediately to ask if he was available for adoption and thankfully he was. My boyfriend and I went to visit him that same day. When the counselor brought Wilbur into the office, we could see that he was shaking like a leaf. I’d never met a dog as shy as him. Before we left, we visited him in his kennel. He was cuddled up with his kennel mate and had this sad look on his face. He seemed like he had given up. I knew at that moment that there was no way he wasn’t coming home with us.

In the last five days, Wilbur has totally transformed. He’s energetic, playful, incredibly affectionate, and has managed to worm his way into our hearts the way he worms into our laps everyday. We’re so thankful for the Pasadena Humane Society for allowing us to bring this wonderful guy into our life. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
