Reddit user towntown1337 adopted ‘Loki’ from his local shelter this past weekend and the photo of his first sleep in his new home will melt your heart.
Towntown1337 who lives in upstate South Carolina says ‘Loki’ is a mix between a Great Pyrenees and German Shepherd. The vet said he was found on the street underweight so the family can expect him to put on another 30 or so pounds!
Below you will find an additional gallery of Loki’s journey to his new home <3

“When we found him at the shelter I fell in love immediately. We took his papers up to the desk and i wanted him that day.. she got to filing paper work and found that he was owned and they just found him on the side of the road and they tried contacting the owner for them to come pick him up. I was devastated because who would want to give this guy up. I had a shred of hope because if the owner didn’t come in 7 days it’s willfully giving him up. So I gave him lovings and left.
My gf and i visited him the next two days to make sure he was still there.. the second day we visited him after we left about 45 minutes later we get a call from the shelter… the owners came in looking for another dog because theirs ran away and couldn’t find him. The shelter was like umm.. we have your puppy here we tried to call you.. the owners said they didn’t want him because he was too big. They weren’t expecting the shelter to have him I guess. Needless to say the shelter didn’t allow them to purchase any more rescues for just letting this one outside and not search for him and I got my amazing year old puppy and my family and i couldn’t be happier!” – towntown1337 on reddit
