Man’s about to return shelter dog when he reads previous owner’s note

A man had finally settled into his new town, but something still felt missing from his life. He thought getting a companion in the form of a shelter dog might help. So he did just that. He went to…


I remember bringing my first dog home from the animal shelter. My heart was bursting with joy and nervousness. Getting a dog can be the best feeling the world. But you never expect you might end up with a story like this. A man adopted Reggie, a Labrador puppy, and things were difficult at first.

The man had recently moved to a new city and was trying to figure out his new surroundings. Reggie was trying to adjust to his new surroundings too. The shelter had a two-week return period in case Reggie and the man were not a good fit. By the end of the two weeks, the man was about to bring Reggie back to the shelter. That’s when he found a box containing Reggie’s stuff, along with a very important letter from his last owner.

Read the letter below.

In the end, Reggie’s previous owner, Paul Mallory, was a soldier who had been killed in action while saving his three friends. The letter made the man see his new dog in a whole new way.
