Tito the dog had been locked in a kennel for over 9 years. The people there took great care of him and even though he's a really well-mannered dog, he just never seemed to find a family to take him home. He's seen countless other dogs around him come and go, but he'd been left waiting. Finally one day, a family showed up and Tito got the forever home he deserved. This video shows his ecstatic reaction to being adopted after waiting so long.
Tito was extremely fortunate to be placed into a non-kill shelter, which is why he was able to get the time he needed to find his forever home. Unfortunately, not all shelters are like that and many of them have policies to put animals that have gone un-adopted to sleep. If you're looking to get a pet this holiday season, hopefully this video is great motivation to check out the animals at your local shelters. Not only will you make an animal as happy as Tito, you may also be saving their life.
