If you’ve had a dog before and got used to all of the ways they bring joy and meaning to your daily life, living without one can be hard. Like REALY hard.
But if you find yourself living somewhere pets are not allowed, what can you really do?
Been saying we’d love a dog about the house but our landlord doesn’t allow pets, so my housemate posted a letter to our neighbours asking if we could walk their dog every once and a while and the response was better than we could have ever hoped for pic.twitter.com/dcMOfPk5UH

Well, these four young engineers decided to take action, as desperate as it may sound. They reached out to their neighbor – a perfect stranger up til now – to offer their petting/playing/walking skills to their neighbor’s dog, who they’d seen through a window.
They sent this message to their neighbor, which was very polite and also showcased how very much they would enjoy spending time with the pooch.
We are four engineers that have recently moved into the area in the past 3-4 months. Our house is comprised of an Englishman, two Scotts, and a Welshman. Diversity.
The other day we noticed a four-legged friend looking at us out the window when we arrived home from work. He or She looked like the good-est boy/girl there is. If you ever need someone to walk him/her, we will gladly do so. If you ever get bored (we know you never will, but we can dream), we are more than happy to look after him/her. If you want to come over and bring him/her to brighten up our day, you are more than welcome. If you want to walk past our balcony windows so we can see him/her, please do.
We hope this doesn’t come on too strong, but our landlord won’t allow pets, and we’ve all grown up with animals. The adult life is a struggle without one.
We look forward to hearing from you. Or not.
The Boys from number 23.
They waited and waited, until finally they received a response.
But it was from the dog herself!
Once they saw the pawprint on the back, they suspected that good news was enclosed – and it was!
Stevie Ticks and “the boys” have now met up twice, once for an introduction and once to play at the local park. Since they all got on well, more outings are definitely in the future!
Her owners say she’s a 2.5-year-old sheprador (a lab/german shepherd mix) originally from Cyprus, but rescued from a local shelter. She loves playing tug-of-war, chasing birds, and licking feet.
She’s obviously the good-est girl, and now she has four more friends.
Everyone’s life is better, so this is just a happy ending all the way around.
