Dog stood up at Valentine’s adoption meet and greet and finally finds a home after 225 days at the shelter

Many people look forward to spending time with their special someone on Valentine’s Day, and that was no less true of a pup named Luke.

The staff at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in Kent, England had a very special event planned for Luke: a themed meet and greet where he would find the love of his life and finally find a forever home.

Except nobody showed up.

The poor dog has been at the shelter for over 200 days. Luke is a 5 year old mixed breed who enjoys quiet comfort and snuggles. He was difficult to accommodate as he has to be the only dog ​​in the household and can take a while to warm up to people.

“Even though he’s a big dog, Luke really is just a big softie and enjoys nothing more than snuggling up to a radiator with his favorite people and a stuffed animal,” said Michelle Bevan, manager of the animal shelter People.

“We really hope that someone will love him for the big lapdog he really is and give him the chance to be loved the way he deserves,” Bevan said.

Despite his special demands, it was still sad to see the big guy stand up on a day dedicated to love and connection.

“Valentine’s Day is a time to show your appreciation for those you care about, so it’s heartbreaking to know that Luke will spend the day without someone to love after no one has come to make him one.” Date,” Bevan said. “Thankfully Battersea staff were on hand to show Luke lots of love and affection instead.”

At the shelter, they made the best of it, but everyone still wanted Luke to find his special someone.

Many followers felt for the dog after hearing about his sad Valentine’s Day, and it wasn’t long before Luke was inundated with fan mail, gifts, donations, and — best of all — adoption requests.

Suddenly Mr Popular, Luke could only go home with one family and it ended up being the Derbyshire Kendricks who took him home for a dry run and sealed the deal a few weeks later.

“Remember Luke, our Battersea resident, getting up on Valentine’s Day?” Battersee shared on Tuesday. “Well, we have good news… he’s finally found his home!

“After 225 days and hundreds of people, Luke has found the perfect home that fits his needs. We hope you have a wonderful time Lukas!”

“How Luke has stayed in the care of Battersea for so long is beyond me, any new owner would have been lucky to give him a new home,” said father Karl Kendrick People.

“Since we brought him home he has proved to be the perfect dog and has settled in so quickly – we already love him so much and wouldn’t change him for the world.

“We are so fortunate to be the family giving Luke his forever home and he has truly made our family unit complete. He will never spend Valentine’s Day alone again.”
