Now my nan always used to say to me that in life facts are very often much stranger than fiction, and this is just one of those cases that really proves that she was right!
In Arizona, there is one particular animal shelter trying to find a home for a dog that they say was given back to them after only 48 hours because he was “too well behaved”!
The dog called “Binx” is a one-year-old male dog, and he was returned to the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA where they got his from.
The Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA said that he was returned:
“…because the dog was considered by its erstwhile new owner as being ‘too good.’ ”
In fact, the shelter posted on Facebook:
“No Seriously! I was adopted and returned within 48 hours, with notes saying I’m potty trained, good with kids, fun to play with, and good with dogs in the home!”
“They decided they wanted more of a challenge.” !!
There really were a lot of people commenting to ask if this lovely and well behaved Binx was still available.
Although, as you may imagine, there were also a lot who were just completely angry that the pup had been returned to the shelter, we are certainly a little puzzled ourselves…

“Hopefully you didn’t let those ridiculous adopters get another dog”
Another person said:
“It boggles my mind how people take pet adoption so flippantly! …A pet is a living breathing thing, not a disposable item.”
Well, you haven’t heard them all until you heard this one, we are definitely sure that if a shelter dog was this good then it must have been meant to be, a match made in heaven, surely?
This is one of those times that has left us a little absent of an explanation, we just can’t get our heads around it, can you?
We would really love to know your thoughts on this quite wonderfully odd behavior, and we say wonderful because everyone will now be queuing up to get this lovely doggie!!
