Dogs — they're just like us! A dog stuck at Animal Ark Rescue in Columbus, GA is using Tinder to find a loving home, and his profile is the sweetest. "Hello hooooouuuuuman! My name is Henry, but you can call me 'good boy.' Netflix and Nuzzles?" Um, we're sold!
Miranda Morrison — a canine behavior and enrichment coordinator, who put Henry on the dating app — opened up to TODAY about what makes Henry so special. "He is my favorite dog at the shelter," Miranda said. "After a long day, he is content to cuddle up on the couch and watch TV and snuggle with you. I could go on and on about him."
Despite his confirmed status as a "good boy," Henry has been at the no-kill shelter for three years. Still, Miranda is convinced there's an owner out there for him, which is why she decided to take matters into her own hands. "I vaguely remember silly things from Tinder in my single swiping days," Miranda, who is now married, explained. "I think I once matched with pizza? I thought, what if I make Henry a profile? That would be worth a shot."
Believe it or not, Henry isn't the only animal on the popular dating site. You'll find other dogs and even cats as well. Karen Hirsch, a spokesperson for LifeLine Animal Project in Atlanta, told TODAY that 22 of LifeLine's pups and kitties went up this week. There's been "so much interest and enthusiasm," she said. "I also think it makes people happy after seeing so many people on the sites to have a cute dog pop up, and we've had one adoption inquiry!"
Unfortunately, Henry hasn't had much luck yet on Tinder, but we have a feeling it's only a matter of days before he finds an owner. After all, who can resist that sweet face?!
