A comfortable bed
Steve has the right to a comfortable and comforting bed, which he certainly has never known before and his behavior proves it: he is very excited when he climbs into it! The animal jumped at it with enthusiasm. His little acrobatics have become a ritual, according to Erin.
Despite his disability, the dog quickly got used to his foster home: ” He learned to navigate my house very quickly. He could find his way out the back, through the garage and up three flights of stairs into the house. He knows how to wait for a meal in the kitchen when he comes in, and knows how to jump on my little round ottoman to lie on my bed. “He’s playful and appreciates hugs.
An obvious adoption
on instagram, Steve has his own story where thousands of people follow his life journey. On February 21, 2022, Erin announce in a publication that Steve has been adopted. He pretended to be a dog and wrote: I’m officially adopted!!!!! I’m not going anywhere!!!!! she [Erin] loves me more than I know and I’m used to my home, environment and routine – I don’t need to change it “.
After a hard life, Steve happy days are now flowing with the one who loves him at first sight.
