If you saw another human who looked exactly like you, wouldn’t you want to meet them? When Bethany Coleman saw a dog that looked identical to her own dog, whom she happened to be walking at the time, she felt compelled to meet the furry doppelganger.
Bethany was headed to the local farmers market with her dog, Rogue, when they first saw Beast. Beast was at the market with the Last Hope K9 Rescue. The animal rescue organization regularly holds adoption events at the farmers market, but Bethany had never noticed Beast before.
When Bethany first saw Beast, she had no intentions of adopting another pet. She already had two senior cats and Rogue, but her boyfriend had mentioned wanting to adopt another dog.
Then something unexpected happened. Rogue, who was normally shy around other dogs, started playing with Beast. The two cairn terrier mixes bonded instantly, and Bethany couldn’t help herself, she filled out the adoption application right there at the market.
Bethany and her boyfriend, Tyson, welcomed Beast into their home. Rogue, who loved Beast at the market, wasn’t so happy about sharing his home with another dog. Beast tried to assert dominance, and Rogue wanted everything the other dog had.
If Beast had a toy or treat, Rogue would steal it. If you’ve ever had a dog, you know how problematic that can be.
Fortunately, the dogs developed a better relationship over time, and they are now inseparable. The two cats eventually came out of hiding. Bethany said it took about four weeks for everything to calm down, but she couldn’t be happier with her decision to welcome Beast into their lives.
A few months after adopting Beast, the entire family moved from Beacon Hill, Massachusetts to Hawaii. Rogue and Beast might have liked frolicking in the snow, but they definitely love running on the beach and splashing in the waves.
We bet Beast never expected to go from being a shelter dog to a jet-setting pampered pooch that lives in Hawaii!
