Social Media Helps Dog Find Favorite Toy

As anyone who owns or loves a dog will tell you, canines just love their toys. Some dogs will play with just about any toy, while others have a favorite: the one toy that they simply cannot live without. For a dog named Jaxon, only one toy will do. The Chihuahua, who is twelve years old, absolutely loves his green plush alligator. There is just something about the toy, named “Greenie” that appeals to the little dog and he can’t go anywhere without his favorite toy.

Jaxon was adopted by the Brown family back in December of 2014, and the family gave him the green alligator toy as a Christmas gift. Since then, it is the only toy he has ever loved. There are plenty of other toys available in his home, but he only has eyes for Greenie. Like most dogs, Jaxon wears out his toy every now and then and it must be replaced with a newer, fresher version. The Brown family recently noticed the toy looking a little worse for the wear, so they headed to their local pet store to buy a new Greenie for Jaxon. Unfortunately, the toy was nowhere to be found and the family was told the toy was discontinued.

So, Kelli Brown looked online and when she couldn’t find anything she headed straight to social media. She asked for help from the internet and from PetSmart. She said:

“PLZ HELP! This Top Paw toy has been discontinued but it’s the only toy 12 y/o Jaxon will play with. Got any laying around? We’ll buy them all up if you’ll let us! Our internet search brought us no luck. Very sad boy here!!”

As luck would have it, a PetSmart employee in Texas searched her store’s clearance section and found just the thing: a box of the Greenie toys Jaxon loved so much. She boxed up eight of his beloved alligator toys, along with some treats, and sent them to the little dog. To say he is happy and excited by the shipment of toys is an understatement!
