This pit bull is the cutest dog at the shelter and he tries hard to prove he’s a good boy and makes his bed every day.
For a dog rescued from the streets, life inside a shelter can be difficult. The lonely wait to find a home and a family that will love them forever, coupled with not understanding what they did wrong to deserve that loneliness, makes an animal feel helpless in a shelter.
Many dogs who come to shelters hope to finally find a forever home, and in some cases, it is only a matter of days before they are adopted. For others, the situation is a little more complex and much more when it comes to a dog classified as a “dangerous breed”, because this stigma makes it difficult to qualify.
But Rush was a very smart boy. He was in the care of the SISSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center in Dayton, Ohio (USA), where he was expecting his new family.

But due to misconceptions about their particular race, children like Rush end up waiting longer than others to finally find their forever home.
Rush was the sweetest dog at the shelter and made a big impression on all of the volunteers, who describe him as a loving and gentle boy. This furry guy just needed a chance to show the world that he was a loving and very kind companion.
The pit bull was full of love and he just needed someone who wanted to make him a part of his life.
Nora Vendrell, Executive Director of SICSA, told ABC News:
There are a lot of negative stereotypes about the American Pit Bull. If we can highlight the adorable points of Rush, then we can help people look beyond the pit bull etiquette.
Maybe Rush believed he needed to do something extraordinary to be adopted and started doing something very special in a dog. Shelter staff noticed that Rush was making his bed in his kennel. He took the blanket in his mouth and gently put it on his pole.
Volunteers at the rescue center shared an adorable video on their YouTube account, showing the gentle dog neatly arranging his bed. The video quickly went viral; became a celebrity and started receiving thousands of adoption requests.
It was without a doubt the best idea they could have, as in no time a couple decided to adopt Rush arrived at the shelter. They wanted to meet Rush, they were fascinated by his behavior in the video and when they got to the shelter they fell madly in love with him.
The family saw the video, came over, met Rush, and fell in love.
Rush’s new family had lost their pet earlier in the year and while they weren’t sure they were ready to adopt a new dog, as soon as they saw Rush they knew it was they wanted to give it a home forever.
