"There was something about his eyes," Obregon told The Dodo. "Something about him that needed to be told."
She originally saw a photo of Mr. Muggles on Facebook about a week before saving him. Then, when she arrived at the shelter on March 29, she saw right away that the dog had a wonderful demeanor, and the potential to be a great pet.
She asked a volunteer to bring him to the shelter's outside play area. "When I first saw him, I did say to the volunteer that I thought he would need work," Obregon said. "But after sitting with him for 20 minutes, I saw all he wanted was love. He would just put his head on my lap and roll on his back so you could rub his belly. That's all he wanted, so there was no way I was leaving without him."
