Acorn’s Dream Come True: The Shelter Dog Who Spent Nearly Two Years Looking for Love

Acorn had a long and lonely journey before finding his forever home. The adorable dog spent 633 days at the Outer Banks SPCA in North Carolina, making him the shelter’s longest resident.

Despite being a sweet and loving pup, Acorn was overlooked by many potential adopters. He needed someone who would be patient and understanding with him, and give him the care he deserved.

Thankfully, that person finally came along on March 18, when Acorn was adopted by his new family. The shelter staff and volunteers were overjoyed to see him go home after nearly two years of waiting.

“We have been waiting and hoping for this moment for a very long time,” the shelter wrote on Facebook. “We remained hopeful that one day the right person would take the time with him and give him the home he deserves and our wish came true!”

Acorn’s adoption was especially emotional for Brad, a volunteer who had formed a close bond with Acorn over the past few years. He was sad to say goodbye to his furry friend, but happy that he finally found his happy ending.

Acorn’s story is a reminder that every dog deserves a chance at love, no matter how long it takes. We’re so happy for Acorn and his new family ❤️
