Have you ever seen a dog’s joy when he realizes he is meeting his family for the first time?
Rescuing a dog or cat is not a decision to make lightly. The decision comes with a great amount of responsibility. Can you pay the vet bills, will you be able to afford the food, can you spend time walking and exercising the animal.
Vet bills and grooming? You not only have to take your pet to get vaccinated, but you also need to plan for unexpected emergencies and the financial strain that could come with them if you don’t prepare properly.
Thankfully for Drove, his life changed when he reached the shelter. During an investigation, rescuers found the 5-year-old dog tied up in an abandoned house. They took Drove to the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby (HSM&S). When he showed up he stole the hearts of the staff right away. But for six months, the pooch was passed over by those people searching for a new pet.
Drove is enjoying his afternoon nap, not knowing that he’s going HOME in a few minutes! His mom just got here and is filling out her final paperwork now!

Then they arrived…Drove was so excited when he saw them show up.
Morgan and her husband, Tyler wanted to welcome a rescue dog into their new home. They’d just married and Morgan had just lost her boxer of thirteen years. Tyler loved the idea of adding a rescue dog to their budding family. They drove to the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby and that’s when they found Drove.
Drove was awakened when Tyler and Morgan arrived, he was headed off to his new home! Drove is now renamed Samson, Sammy for short.
A shelter staff member recalled the adorable moment saying, “He’s just sleeping so sweetly with no idea he’s going to be going home soon!”
“Since the first night we brought him home, he hates to leave our side,” Morgan said. “If my husband or I get up to grab some water, or leave the room for a second, he follows us to make sure we are not leaving.”
The adorable moment was captured when Drove realized he was finally going to a loving home! Watch the video below:
You can see the utter surprise and delight on Drove/Samson’s face. We’re glad this sweet pup finally found his forever home.
Share if you’re glad Samson found his forever family too!
