This Animal Shelter Just Got 5,000 Dogs Adopted. But The Unexpected Way They Did It Is Brilliant!

If you want a good friend who loves and supports you unconditionally in everything you do, then look no further than your local animal shelter. There are countless animals of every breed, size, color, and temperament imaginable out there. They are just waiting to help someone who comes along in need of companionship and immeasurable joy.

Most people assume that when they adopt at a shelter they are saving an animal and helping them out. While this is partly true, the reverse of that thought is often a better way to describe the situation. Pets that we adopt are saving us, in more ways than one, and if you have a rescue animal at home you likely already know and understand why.

This was the idea behind a new adoption campaign at the Lost Dog’s Home, a shelter for dogs located in Australia. They thought of a great way to get people and their homeless dogs together, by way of “The Human Walking Program.”

The word was spread among office workers that at lunch and break times they would be able to spend time playing, walking, and hanging out with the dogs. It gave the workers a chance to get away from their desks for some fresh air and exercise, and the animals got much needed attention and exposure.

By the end of this adoption drive every single one of the over 5,000 adoptable dogs found a new home with an office worker. The program was an immense success and all of the rescued workers will now lead healthier lives because of it.

Being around dogs naturally makes humans more active. The animals love to play, take walks, chase things, and do all sorts of fun activities. Nothing is more relaxing and enjoyable than taking some time out of your busy day to hang out and spend some quality time bonding with your dog.

It’s a proven fact that people who own pets are better off because of it. Not only do they help to fulfill our social needs, they also improve our overall happiness, physical health, and well-being. People report that they are just as close, and oftentimes even closer, to their pets than they are to most of their family members!

Human Puts Shoes on The Floor In Front of This Pup. The Dog Proceeds To Do a Hysterical Shuffle.

There are all sorts of tricks and commands that our pets are capable of doing out there. They range widely in scope, from the incredible and mind-blowing, to the goofy and strange. If you ever used to watch the Late Show with David Letterman then you’re likely familiar with some of the segments that featured “stupid human tricks” and “stupid pet tricks.” This adorable video short falls under the latter category and once you check it out you’ll see why! The big dog seen in the clip sitting patiently with a pair of shoes in front of him is a Boxer named Watson.

He happens to have a very special and unique talent which may seem a bit silly to some, but it’s actually quite awesome nonetheless! The amount of concentration he puts into it is super impressive. Watching this boxer pup show off his skills totally made my day!

When his mom gives him the command he takes one short step forwards and slides his two front paws into the Crocs. The next thing you see is Watson walking across the room in the comfy foam footwear! He seems to be putting in a lot of concentration on shuffling around because his head is fixated downwards and all his attention is directed solely at his feet. He’s a natural born walker and, at the very least, has one cool party trick up his sleeve!

Check out the second video below also to see Watson in all his glory! As for Watson’s choice of footwear, or rather his owner’s, they couldn’t have chosen an uglier pair of shoes for him to go walking in. Many informal polls and studies have found that people view Crocs as the ultimate fashion no-no when it comes to style and likability. Somehow even though so many people dislike Crocs they continue to sell to the people who swear by them.

The clunky rubber shoes that come perforated with a bunch of holes in them were originally designed as a boating shoe, but people wear them on and off dry land. As hideous as many people find them to be, the rubber clogs are super easy to slip in and out of, so Watson’s fashion faux-paw can be forgiven! Personally I would never wear Crocs but if Watson digs them I could totally watch him strut his stuff all day!

If you’ve never seen a dog walk in human shoes before, well here you have it. Be sure to check out the second funny little clip below and pass it on to help spread some smiles!
