Man who Doesn’t Like Dogs Changes Mind

April Livingston | June 27th, 2018

While this is very difficult to believe, there are some people out there who just don’t like dogs. One of those odd non-dog people is the sixty five year old father of Vinicius Carleto. Vinicius lives in Brazil with his parents and made a suggestion recently: he thought the family should rescue a dog from their local shelter. His parents were not exactly excited about the idea, and his father in particular was outright against it. His father even said he did not want a dog to be inside his house. Vinicius says that was no surprise, as his father tends to be a bit of a grumpy person. Vinicius was not about to give up on his dream of dog ownership, however. Rather than be discouraged by his parents lack of interest in a dog, he decided to arrange a meet and greet between his parents and the dog he had his heart set on.

The sweet pup, a dog named Pitoco, was a big hit with the family. Vinicius was able to convince his family to adopt her, even though his father wasn’t thrilled about the idea. Once Pitoco was in the house, the dog was accepted but pretty much ignored by his father. However, that did not last very long. Vinicius’ dad soon fell under the spell of Pitoco’s sweet nature and soon realized that the dog was not only adorable, but was a wonderful companion too. His father would come home from work each day feeling stressed and was soon distracted by the dog rather than wallowing in his feelings.

One day, Vinicius came home to find his dad running around the backyard with the dog, playing and laughing. He couldn’t believe his eyes. Pitoco and Vinicius’ dad even have shirts with one another’s face on them—and it’s clear that they are now the best of friends. Just proof that dogs are incredible creatures full of love!
