“It was love at first sight,” Tracy Kenny said in a press release. “We weren’t really looking for a dog at the time but when we saw big cuddly Bear snoozing away on the program, we just knew we had to offer her a home.”
The couple called the RSPCA right away to express their interest in Bear, but were told that someone else had already reserved her. They were disappointed but figured it just wasn’t meant to be — but a few days later, the RSPCA called them back to say that the other family fell through, and if they wanted Bear, they were welcome to come and meet her right away.
“We couldn’t wait,” Kenny said. “As soon as we saw her, we knew she was perfect for us. We have had dogs in the past and knew if we did get another, we’d like a large breed, so it seems rehoming Bear was meant to be.”
