Wallace finds a way to get noticed

WallaceMy boyfriend and I had decided to get a dog, and spur-of-the-moment one Sunday, we decided to go to your shelter. As we walked through the rows of dogs, one dog stood out to us because of his barking. I made a comment, and we moved on. 

The adoption counselor asked us what type of pup we were looking for, and she brought up the profile of Wallace, the very dog we had seen barking. As she read through his notes, she mentioned his kind nature, intelligence and love for animals and people. We decided to have a look, and it was pretty much over once we shared a room with him.
