The poor dog had found himself at the West Memphis Animal Shelter at just ten months and had always craved family love.

In a bid to assist him, Alive Rescue Memphis had helped get him out of the shelter and into a new home, and it was then that the Sweers’ found his pictures on Facebook.

The couple, who already had a dog named Nellie, decided to give it a shot. After a 4-hour drive by a volunteer to get Kylo to his likely new family, they met and, as revealed by The Dodo, they believed that it was meant to be.

While speaking on the occurrence, Meghan said:

“As soon as they left he crawled into my lap, tucked his head under my chin, and started snoring like a chainsaw.”

It was an instantaneous attraction for the pair. They decided to keep him, and their story has been great ever since.

They've had to make a few adjustments, but nothing was too much to sacrifice for their amazingly loving buddy.

Meghan also revealed that Kylo was one for the ‘cuddles.’ He waits anxiously for his new mom to arrive each time he is let out of the crate so he can get his hugs.

“If I don't sit down for our cuddle time he follows me around with the saddest most pathetic look on his face until I give in and hold him."

She also revealed that several of those close to her have had their minds changed about bully breeds after their encounter with Kylo, as he wins people over with his ‘pawsome’ cuddling skills.

How to make your dog feel special

Although you might be putting in a lot of work, your pet might not feel like the love they have for you is being reciprocated.

Why? You might not be doing what they love and understand. So what can you do to make your dog feel loved?

1. Ear rubs: Nothing makes a dog feel more special than a gentle pat and play behind the ear. It's to dogs what hugs are to humans.

2. Occasionally feed by hand: Although this is often advised for little ones, feeding your dog by hand is an excellent way to build a bond. It helps create trust.

3. Speak loving words to them: Despite not being fully proved, research has shown that dogs may understand some words spoken to them sometimes. Be nice!

4. Try to understand your dog: Learning to recognize when your dog is dissatisfied is important. It helps you become aware of their feelings and makes them feel more special.
