Rescue Dog Rolls To His New Home In A Luxury Limo After 2-Year Wait In His Kennel


“Dreams do come true” is an expression that we can often hear in movies or read in books, especially if it is about some fairy tales. It is precisely for this reason that many people are skeptical when they hear it and think that it is a product of someone’s embellished reality.

Although this may sometimes be the case, there are also plenty of positive examples where we witness exactly that – the fulfillment of one’s dreams despite all the difficulties. 

Today’s story is one such example, and it begins with a dog who found himself in such a desperate situation at one point that he was on the verge of survival. 

However, despite all the hardships, he managed to emerge from the darkness and shine in his full glory.

When the employees of Euclid Pet Pals, located in Euclid, Ohio, received a call from a concerned citizen about dogs abandoned within a house, they could not even imagine what would await them there. 

As soon as they got to that place, their hearts broke when they saw 4 dogs in a desperate state. According to the Euclid Pet Pals Facebook post, they were neglected and left there without food or water for one week

Although all four dogs were in bad condition, the only male in the house, whom they named Chester, was the most critical. He was chained to the window and could hardly move, which had terrible consequences for him.

“Chester was completely skin and bones; the dog couldn’t even lay down. He had his paw stuck in a prong collar, and he was a mess. He had to be carried out after a little bit because he could not stand,” Kyrie Brickman, Ohio’s Euclid Animal Shelter manager, told FOX News 8.

However, as soon as he saw people and finally felt a humane hug, the smile immediately returned to his face. When they saw this, his saviors were sure that this dog would meet his happy ending someday. 

Yet, due to his very poor health, his recovery was not at all easy and took a very long time. Besides, after everything he had been through, his emotional state wasn’t any better either, and it took him a long time to fully trust humans again. 

Fortunately for Chester and those who cared for him, after 11 months of intensive recovery, he was a new dog – smiling, full of love for his saviors and his favorite toys, and soon ready for adoption.

Although he had to wait more than an additional half a year for that moment, he could not have dreamed how solemn it would be.

Spending two years in a shelter isn’t easy, but it was actually a blessing for Chester after everything he’d been through. However, just like any other dog, he dreamed of a warm home and a loving family that would never betray him like his previous owner did.

The wait was ultimately worth it, and Chester finally met his happy ending. On March 3, 2024, Euclid Pet Pals announced the happiest of news in a Facebook post. 


However, the way Chester went from the shelter in Euclid, Ohio to his forever home overshadowed all other events. On that day, a luxury limousine came to pick him up, and many people gathered at the entrance of the shelter to give him a standing ovation.

Lauren Reitsman, his new Mom, was over the moon because of the ceremony they had arranged for him, and Brickman herself couldn’t hide her delight either.  

“Your story touched thousands, Chester, and I was privileged to be the one to narrate your journey from the shelter to this moment,” Brickman wrote in her Facebook post. 

Once the limousine pulled up in front of his forever home, Chester’s new life could begin. His mom loved him with all her heart and did everything to always keep the beautiful smile on his face. Chester will never be left alone again.

Besides melting many hearts with his touching life story, this dog also showed that dreams do come true, and he became a model to many others who still dream of their own luxury limousine.

“You’ve become a beacon for all those dogs still waiting in shelters, showing them that their perfect home is out there, waiting,” Brickman wrote in the end.
