Foster failures really make out like bandits when they “don’t” do their job right. When this particular human spotted Harry, a tiny, matted mess, on Helping Paws, she decided to give him a temporary home.

And Harry made the perfect houseguest, even if he got into a little trouble sometimes.

But she could never have guessed that after an extensive grooming session to rid him of the matts, dirt, and tar, this dapper dog would become more than just a rescue mission.


Harry’s foster mom, Reddit user lwmajeed, says,

We became his foster parents because he had no place to go and now he has found a special place in our hearts and our home.

The feeling I get now after seeing what he has gone through is like nothing else!

Two months was all it took to realize that Harry was always a part of the family, and now this boy’s got a big bed to sleep on and at least one warm lap to rest his head.

The world needs more failures like these, no?
