Do you remember your first day of school? Or your first day on the job? Or how about the first day you brought your rescue pup home?

When we first brought Porter home, it was exciting and nerve racking. However, the minute he entered the apartment, he saw the blankets we had bought him and went straight for them. He laid down and looked up at us as if to say “Why did it take you so long to find me?”.

That first day is magical for us. But how about for them? How amazing it must be for them to be in a home and feel love. For some pups, it’s the most kindness and comfort they’ve received so far.

Here are some pictures of a few rescue animal’s first days home. They’re not all dogs, but hey, we don’t discriminate.

What was your pup’s first day home like?

Keep calm and pilot on

  1. Although Hunter didn’t give the best first impression, our first day was great. I remember it like it was yesterday. When I went to get him at the home he was staying at, he somehow jumped out of a low window and made me chase him around the neighborhood : ) Once we got home, though, he settled in very nicely and was much more calm than I expected. Pretty much immediately he ran up to sit on the top of my couch so he could look out the window. It’s his favorite spot now and where he spends most of his time when we are home.
