Meet Kylo, a rescue dog who is so grateful to have been rescued from a shelter that he wants to snuggle and hug his human mom the moment she walks into their home. “As soon as I sit down to take off my shoes, he climbs into my lap to be held,” Kylo’s new owner Meghan Sweers told The Dodo. “If I don’t sit down for our cuddle time, he follows me around with the saddest, most pitiful expression on his face until I cave and hold him.”
“We saw his picture on Facebook and reached out,” Kylo’s new mother, Meghan Sweers, told The Dodo. “I believe he was always meant to end up with us; it just took us a while to find him!”
Sweers and her husband already had another dog, a little corgi named Nellie, so they decided to give Kylo a trial night to see if he and Nellie would get along. A volunteer from the rescue drove Kylo four hours to his potential family’s home, and they knew it was meant to be the moment he arrived.
Sweers explained, “As soon as they left, he crawled into my lap, tucked his head under my chin, and began snoring like a chainsaw.” “My husband and I knew he was staying with us from that moment!”
Kylo quickly fell in love with his new family; the only issue he had was the hardwood floors, which his family remedied by placing some rugs to make the pup feel more at ease.
“He moves around the house by jumping from rug to rug,” Sweers explained.
Kylo simply wants to be loved. He never misses a day of kissing and hugging his mother. He is undeniably Mom’s boy. Every night, he stands in front of the door, waiting for his beloved mother to return home.
“He climbs into my lap to be held as soon as I sit down to take off my shoes,” Sweers explained. “If I don’t sit down for our cuddle time, he follows me around with the saddest, most pitiful expression on his face until I cave and hold him.”
“After spending time with him, many of our family members who were very prejudiced against bully breeds have changed their tune,” Sweers said. “He wins people over by climbing into their laps and falling asleep.”
