I typically reserve my TV watching for The Daily Show, 30 Rock and Gossip Girl, but sometimes you just have to give in to those guilty pleasures and indulge in reality show drama! I randomly happened to catch this week’s episode of Real World Brooklyn and I’m glad I did! I was pleasantly surprised to see Devyn and the other roomies adopt an adorable Yorkshire Terrier puppy! The Yorki, appropriately named Brooklyn, could not have looked happier being taken back to the Real World house to get acquainted with his new family.

Devyn made sure she was prepared for the addition to the family by having proper food, toys, and bedding ready for Brooklyn upon his arrival. She also understands the commitment that comes with having a dog and said “I take this very seriously as a lifetime commitment” and knows that adopting a dog into your life is a great way to learn “to be responsible and patient and to be fully invested in something…” And kudos to Ryan for looking out for little Brooklyn and pointing out to everyone that having a tiny-sized puppy does not mean it’s a tiny responsibility. Ryan was quick to note that dogs are companions, not accessories!

Every year between 4 and 8 million animals are brought into animal shelters and half of them are killed due to the lack of funds and space to adequately care for them. Adopting an animal from a shelter means that you’re giving a home and a life to an animal that will otherwise not have either. Having a companion animal is a joy everyone should experience, and adopting is the compassionate, intelligent choice to make.

    I saw that episode too! Brooklyn is so cute, and it was great that she took the adoption seriously and that she chose to adopt!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
