We all know the feeling of having that one thing that is just so close to our hearts. That one thing that has a sentimental value and you wouldn’t trade it for anything. No, it’s not just us humans that have that one thing.
Sometimes dogs can have that too. It might be their squeaky toys, a ball, or maybe even a metal bucket. I get it if you are a bit weirded out with the last option but it really is possible, don’t believe me? Well, meet Slim!
Slim is a pitbull in Ohio. It was discovered in a forsaken home afraid and alone. Since being taken in Ashland County Dog Shelter, he had a hard time interacting with any of the staff.
I’m guessing the time it spent alone in its former place made him get used to being alone, or maybe still adjusting to the new environment. But during that phase, it made only one friend – the silver bucket.
Slim’s vigor always gets in the way of him with its toys, ripping them in an instant. He also developed anxiety, making it hard for it to find dog friends; play with them.
Despite the circumstances, it found his real soul mate; a true friend in that metal bucket and their bond is pretty tight. Slim doesn’t need to worry about destroying the bucket and the bucket would never abandon him.
He was up for adoption; Slim was in need of someone that could handle him together with its bucket. Their image and story were put out and after, their photo went viral.
Slim found a loving owner in its new home. Finally, he has found someone that was sensitive and kind enough to take on the challenges of taking care of Slim.
