Here’s What Happened When Dogs Were Made To Pick Their Own Christmas Gifts

Christmas is that time of the year when everybody puts others first, and celebrate peace, love, and joy. In fact, this beautiful time is all about being thankful and giving back to others who made this year special. But while we celebrate with friends and family, we should never forget our four-pawed friends that really need our attention.

Hence, the staff of Dogs Trust Ireland’s Rehoming Center in Dublin made sure that the homeless weren’t forgotten. The staff, along with some supporters, arranged a set of presents for the pooches who were once neglected. To make the occasion more memorable, the staff let the dogs chose what they like. First, the joyful dogs were guided into a room full of Christmas gifts. Then the staff recorded 35 dogs excitedly selecting their gifts.

In the endearing video posted by Dogs Trust Ireland, the toys kept on the floor, neatly arranged in a line. Then the dogs, one at a time, were led into the room to select what they like the most. Needless to say, the adorable pooches were super excited to select a toy.

Some dogs picked their gift almost instantly. However, others took their time to check out the toys one by one to find the best fit. Selecting one toy out of a lot is a task that requires the dogs to concentrate well. Also, the joy emanated by these pooches definitely brings out the joyous Christmas feels. It’s truly fascinating how the different personalities of dogs can be bought out from such a simple task.

Dogs Trust Ireland also announced that since they put a pause on adoptions for the Christmas season, the dogs in the video are still with them. They added: “It’s just fantastic for us to see them being so happy over something so simple, and we really, really hope this will help them all get adopted in 2020!”
