Puppy Returned to Shelter 48 Hours After Being Adopted for Being 'Too Good'

Combined Shape

Just like kids, all animals are different. You can research breeds, sure, but in the end, every furry friend has their own personality.

You might get a tame dog or a wild cat. Maybe you’ll end up with a well-mannered feline, or a hair-raising pooch.

Most of us would prefer to stay on the well-behaved side of things, wouldn’t we? Pet training is serious work and requires dedication and discipline.

But what if you could adopt the perfect dog? One that was already housebroken and didn’t require much teaching at all?

I’d say sign me up! Most of us would, I’m guessing. Man’s best friend without the headaches or messes or all-night barking episodes? Yes, please!

If this sounds like you, you’re not going believe what happened when the perfect dog went home with his new adoptive family.

According to a Facebook post from the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA, this is exactly what happened to a dog named Binx.

Would you want to adopt a well-behaved dog?

Binx sounds like the best dog ever. “’I’m Binx, And I am TOO good of a dog,” the post begins. “I was adopted and returned within 48 hours, with notes saying I’m potty trained, good with kids, fun to play with, and good with dogs in the home!”

“They decided they wanted more of a challenge,” the post continues. “And I think the only challenging part of me is how devastatingly handsome I am.”

Well one thing’s for certain, Binx has a great sense of humor! Poor puppy. Who would have thought a dog could be “too good?”

Thankfully, this wasn’t the end of the adoption road for this fun-loving canine. It wasn’t long before Binx’s story reached his soon-to-be owner’s ears.

A more recent Facebook post on AAWL’s page confirmed this pup found a place to call home. “They live next to a mountain preserve so we can go hiking all the time,” the post says.

Awww! They look great together. We hope Binx and his new family will be so happy. What a wonderful ending to a somewhat odd story. I’ll bet these owners have no problem with Binx’s good manners.
