Nowadays, there are many homeless dogs, which are waiting for their families. One amazing story happened with a gay couple, who took a dog from the shelter and he became a part of their family. a same-couple wanted a dog to be on the wedding and bear rings for them. Rich Endean and Rick Evans married at the Summerhill Bowling Club in Newcastle upon Tyne. But their dog Elvis actually took centre stage. The couple produced a short video featuring Elvis arriving at the wedding venue after a little adventure through the city.
They also used the opportunity to raise funds for the Brysons Animal Shelter in Gateshead, where they adopted Elvis. Rich says: “We adopted him 5 years ago when he was 18 months, he was a bit of a teenage tearaway but he’s calmed down a lot since then. Everyone he meets loves him.”
Of Brysons, they said: “Because Brysons are a small independent shelter, they don’t have the fundraising resources of the likes of the bigger animal charities. And we’ll be forever indebted to them for bringing Elvis into our lives. “This video’s had 22k views in less than 24 hours, and we’ve raised over £300 so far, we’re not quite sure how we’re going to top that one, but we’ll try and come up with something. We also found one of his brothers via his Facebook page, so maybe they can do a collab together!”
