US Coast Guard members at the Indiana River Coast Guard base in Delaware have opened their hearts (and their home) to their newly adopted shelter dog, Mr. Beefy.
This black and white bundle of love and joy was cared for by the Delaware SPCA as a cruelty case for over a year before being adopted into his new home.
Mr. Beefy now has not one person, but 20 US Coast Guard members to spoil him rotten. His rank from shelter dog was upgraded to an official military dog and a US Coast Guard seaman apprentice!
In a follow up visit, numerous staff and volunteers with the Delaware SPCA spent time getting lots of kisses from Mr. Beefy and listened to stories from the other members of the Coast Guard about how loved Mr. Beefy is by everyone on the base.
Mr. Beefy now enjoys a life of constant companionship and doggie bliss. He sleeps in the bed with whomever pulls overnight duty, sits on the couch watching TV with Coast Guard members, and he knows how to open the door to his favorite room—the cafeteria.
It seems Mr. Beefy received the best gift a shelter dog could ask for—a loving forever home—and for that we are forever thankful.
