The dog, saved a year ago, still holds his mother every day when he comes home

Kylo Ren ended up staying at the West Memphis Animal Shelter at the age of 10 months. A big goofy dog just wanting to be loved, he was soon pulled out of the shelter by ALIVE Rescue Memphis as the first step towards finding his eternal family.

After being rescued and pulled away, Kylo had to live a long time in a foster home, with no interest or application from any potential adopters. No one understood why this sweet boy wouldn’t generate any interest – until his perfect family finally discovered him.

“We saw pictures of him on FB and got in touch,” Meghan Sweers, Kylo’s new mother, told The Dodo. “I think he always intends to associate with us, and it only takes a while for us to find him!”

Sweers and her husband have another dog, a little corgi named Nellie, so they decided to give Kylo a night to try to make sure he and Nellie get along. A volunteer on the rescue team drove Kylo to his family’s home for four hours, and from the moment he arrived, they knew it was true.

“As soon as they left, he got into my lap, nuzzled my chin, and started snoring like a chainsaw,” said Sweers. “From that moment, my husband and I knew he would be with us!”

Kylo had no trouble moving to a new place and fell in love with his family right away. He has some quirky personalities, like hating hardwood floors, but his family can adapt to anything, including carpeting their entire house, so he feels safe at all times.

“He’s navigating the house by jumping from rug to rug,” Sweers said.

Really, all Kylo wants is to be loved and cuddled – that’s why he greets his mother with hugs and hugs every day when she comes home from work.

Kylo is a big mother’s boy, and so when his dad comes home first every night and lets Kylo out of his crib, he gazes at the front door until his mom finally passes. That half an hour later.

“As soon as I sat down to take off my shoes, he climbed onto my lap for a hug,” said Sweers. “If I don’t sit down during our cuddling time, he will follow me around with his worst face until I give in and hold on to him.”

If possible, Kylo would spend the day just sitting and sleeping in her mother’s arms. He wants nothing more in life than love and love in return, and even those who could previously be afraid of dogs like him can’t help but change hearts when they meet sweet Kylo.

“Many of our family members, who are so prejudiced against bullying dogs, have changed their views after spending time with him,” said Sweers. “He overcame people a little more than forcibly … by creeping into their lap and falling asleep.”
