We can all surely agree that all dogs deserve loving homes forever. Unfortunately, not all dogs are given a chance. Many rescue dogs look intimidating, and they find it hard to find people willing to adopt them. Some of them are so stubborn that people who want to adopt them get turned off by their personalities.
However, some people take on the challenge and see all the positives in a dog’s personality instead of focusing on the negatives. When a woman named Pascale Terry met a rescue Alaskan Malamute named Butchy, she fell in love at first sight. As an Alaskan Malamute, Butchy had a huge body that looked like a Polar Bear. He was intimidating to look at, and people didn’t want to adopt him because of his size.
However, Pascale saw something in Butchy that made her fall in love with him. To Pascale, Butchy looked like her soulmate. Butchy is an alpha dog who found it hard to bond with humans. He was stubborn and intimidating but fiercely loyal to his humans. When Pascale saw Butchy at the animal shelter for the first time, she was in love.

Eventually, Pascale decided to adopt Butchy and a loving forever home. Butchy was his own boss and never really followed any commands coming from Pascale. However, he was also sweet and loving that he would always find time to cuddle with his new family, especially with Pascale.
Butchy was abandoned by his owners and was picked up by animal control officers. Before Pascale adopted him, Butchy lived in the pound until Pascale stumbled across his picture and profile on a Facebook page. At that time, Pascale was looking for a dog to adopt. She didn’t want to pick a dog and just wanted to adopt a dog that needed the most love.
The animal shelter responded and recommended Butchy to be the perfect dog for her to adopt. Butchy was struggling at the shelter, and he really didn’t like people touching his head to tail, which made it even harder for him to get adopted. When Butchy was subjected to a behavior test, he snapped, which eventually meant being slated to be euthanized.
Thankfully, Pascale came across Butchy’s profile, and she immediately adopted him and gave him a second chance. Despite his stubborn personality, Butchy became such an amazing dog for Pascale. Once Butchy accepted Pascale to be a part of his pack. He would do anything to keep Pascale safe. Here’s a heartwarming video featuring Butchy and his story of how he found his forever home.
