Meet Kylo, the rescue doggie who feels so grateful for being saved from a shelter, he just wants to snuggle and hug his human mom the moment she steps into their house. “As soon as I sit down to take off my shoes he climbs into my lap to be held,” Meghan Sweers, Kylo’s new owner, told The Dodo. “If I don’t sit down for our cuddle time he follows me around with the saddest most pathetic look on his face until I give in and hold him.”
“We saw his picture on Facebook and reached out,” Meghan Sweers, Kylo’s new mom, told The Dodo. “I think he was always meant to wind up with us, it just took some time for us to find him!”
Sweers and her husband already had another dog, a little corgi named Nellie, so they decided to do a trial night with Kylo to make sure he and Nellie would get along. A volunteer from the rescue drove Kylo four hours to his potential family’s home, and from the moment he arrived, they knew it was meant to be.
“As soon as they left he crawled into my lap, tucked his head under my chin, and started snoring like a chainsaw,” Sweers said. “From that moment my husband and I knew he was staying with us!”
Kylo quickly fell in love with his new family, the only issue he had was the hardwood floors, however his family took care of that by putting some rugs so the pup feels comfortable.
“He navigates the house by jumping from rug to rug,” Sweers said.
Kylo just wants to be love. He never skips a day kissing hugging his mom. He is surely mom’s boy. Every night he is waiting in front of the door for his beloved mom to come home.
“As soon as I sit down to take off my shoes he climbs into my lap to be held,” Sweers said. “If I don’t sit down for our cuddle time he follows me around with the saddest most pathetic look on his face until I give in and hold him.”
“Many of our family members who were very prejudiced against bully breeds have changed their tune after spending time around him,” Sweers said. “He wins people over a bit forcibly … by climbing into their lap and falling asleep.”
