A dog named Rhino was left at a Utah shelter because he was too hyper and rowdy. But when the 3-year-old dog was dropped at the Humane Society of Utah, he came with a heartfelt 15-page spiral notebook that had handwritten instructions by the daughter of the family on how to take care of her pet.
“Hi, If you are reading this you must be Rhino’s new owner. He was my puppy. I really hope he is in a good environment. I miss him. His full name is Rhino Lightning then your last name,” read the touching note.
"He was my puppy. I really hope he is in a good environment. I really miss him. I wish he knew that he was a pretty puppy," she penned on the book.
She also mentioned that Rhino does not like water or snow and isn't too fond of cats.
“It's the first time that a child has done this," said Deann Shephard from the Humane Society of Utah. "It was very heartbreaking to see from her perspective, her relationship and friendship with this dog, but we hope that she sees the story and knows that his best friend is going to find a new home."
Soon the story went viral and the search for a new, more suitable family for Rhino began.
Within four days, the search was over and Rhino found a new house. The new owner is making sure she keeps up with all the instructions.
