While browsing at the store, an unexpected task landed in Ray’s lap when a clerk asked for his assistance in catching a stray dog that was causing a ruckus. Ray’s heart instantly warmed when he laid eyes on the adorable pup happily wagging its tail and greeting everyone with a smile. Unable to resist the charm, Ray scooped up the lovable dog and held her close in his arms.

Ray phoned Animal Control to alert them about the stray dog he found. Due to their inability to pick her up that day, they suggested Ray look after her until they could come get her the next day. Excited by the idea, Ray and the dog, whom he named Dolly, quickly bonded. Dolly lavished Ray with kisses as they made their way to his place. She enjoyed spending time with Ray and showed her affection by giving him lots of love. As they lounged together, watching Netflix, Dolly seemed to feel like she had found her forever home with Ray.

While sharing his story with The Dodo, Ray described the moment Dolly climbed onto his shoulder and released a contented sigh, as if proclaiming, “This is it, I’m home.” It was in that instant that Ray gazed at her and realized he never wanted to part ways with her. When Animal Control contacted Ray about Dolly, he made it clear that he was more than willing to give her a permanent home if her original owners were not searching for her. Eventually, Dolly found herself at a shelter.

Ray was heartbroken when he found out that Dolly had to go to a shelter in Polk County, Florida for processing. Dolly, too, didn’t want to be separated from Ray. She longed to be back home with him, spending their time together. Ray was hopeful that he could adopt Dolly a week later if no one claimed her since she didn’t have a microchip. However, Dolly got stuck in the system for weeks due to the shelter taking in over a hundred dogs from a pet hoarding situation. Despite the separation, Ray made sure to visit Dolly every other day because they missed each other. Each time Ray had to leave without her, Dolly looked sad, her ears drooping in sorrow. Ray couldn’t help but feel sorry for her.

As soon as the pup left the shelter, she leaped into Ray’s arms and showered him with sweet kisses. Both Dolly and Ray were absolutely thrilled to begin their life together. Once they made it back home, Dolly’s enthusiasm couldn’t be contained as she zoomed around the bed in excitement. Ray and Dolly quickly became inseparable, with the pup happily tagging along wherever her dad went.
