Family Adopts Dog And Son Together

April Livingston | May 2nd, 2019

A woman named Jessica Banzhof had just planned to run a quick errand to the pet store to return food. But while she was there, she saw Cupid. He was a pit bull with a white face and brindle coat and he was wearing a red sweater. She was so taken by the dog that she couldn’t resist getting closer and asking the owner if she could pet him. But as she got closer to him, she realized the woman with him wasn’t his owner—and fate had stepped in that day. Cupid the dog was in the pet store that day as part of a program called Dogs on the Town. The program was started by the Lucas County Canine Care and Control organization in Ohio. The idea is to get shelter dogs noticed by taking them out and about in the local community. That day, the program worked for Jessica.

She grabbed her phone and texted her husband saying she had met and dog and loved him. He was sweet, calm, and friendly and she knew her sons had been wanting a larger dog. Cupid was just the perfect dog to be adopted by their family. Ironically, the family was already in the process of adding another member to the family. Jessica’s son Gabe, who is ten, was officially being adopted by his stepfather.

Jessica brought her family to meet Cupid and they just clicked—and he even got along with the family’s three little dogs. So, she paid the adoption fee but still wanted to wait a bit to make the decision. Gabe’s adoption day was just a few days later and it was finally official that his name matched that of his family. The family went out to eat to celebrate and Jessica asked Gabe what he wanted to do next. He responded: let’s go get my dog! It was a double adoption day for both Gabe and Cupid, and the dog has now settled in as a beloved member of the family.
