It’s seemingly a sad story when a dog is surrendered back to the shelter he came from, but this one has a happy ending.
When Rhino Lightning was dropped off at the Utah Humane Society by the family who had adopted him, it was sad. That is until the staff looked through the “instruction book” that came with him; it was written by his former 8-year-old owner.
The dog was much bigger than the family had expected and they just couldn’t give him the proper environment.
Rhino’s instructions from the girl include "Please don't change his name. He likes sleeping under blankets. Take him on at least 2 or 3 runs a day. Tell Rhino, "I love and miss him every night."
This is where Melanie Hill steps in. She saw Rhino and adopted him right away. One of the requirements in the instructions was Rhino have a doggie sibling. Check! Hill makes sure she follows the booklet every day.
