Things are finally looking good for Ronald.  This North Carolina dog finds his forever home after being rejected 14 times.  Ronald found his perfect match with a nurse in Wake County, North Carolina.

So why was Ronald being rejected time after time?  He was just “too clumsy, too goofy, too large and too naughty”. Sounds like the group of guys I work with. Seriously though, the excuses just keep coming as family after family after family kept rejecting Ronald and taking him to his animal shelter in Raleigh.

Luckily for Ronald, staff at the shelter did not give up hope.  They knew him to be the sweet guy that he was and upped their efforts to help him find a place he could rest his paws for all time.

Kiersten Davis is a 28 year old nurse and when she saw the one year old 63 pound puppy on social media she fell in love.  His size and energy did not intimidate her one bit.  Instead she says she found the missing piece for her family and now that the adoption is permanent she says she will never let him go.  Kiersten goes one to say he is “perfect”.

Of the 14 people who tried Ronald, only Kiersten was the right fit.  We are so happy this North Carolina dog found his forever home after being rejected 14 times.  To learn more, get details from People.
