Dog Returned To Shelter With Letter From Girl Who Loved Him

Some people shouldn't be allowed to own a pet, and yet these bad owners keep adopting pets and abandoning them when caring for the animal becomes "too hard".

Rhino Lightning the Boxer fell victim to one of these bad owners when he was adopted from the Humane Society then returned months later because "They felt that he was a little too rambunctious with their small children".

But one of the kids clearly loved spending time with poor Rhino, and the helpful letter she sent along with Rhino shows she's going to be a great pet owner- unlike her parents.

Her adorable note contains advice like "Rhino need's lots of atenchen", "don't tease him with treats he will start to bark like crazy" and "his full name is Rhino litning then your last name. please don't rename him".

Rhino was adopted soon after being returned to the Humane Society of Utah, and the new owners agreed to follow the little girl's advice and let Rhino Lightning keep his awesome name.

I don't think you can call them bad owners for returning a dog that they felt threatened their children's safety. I do a lot of animal rescue (mostly cats) and have fostered dogs, and sometimes the dog adopted out doesn't fit.

It is as much the fault of the Humane Society for not properly matching the family to the dog as it is the family for not being able to handle the dog.
