When Bethany Coleman and her dog, Rogue, stumbled upon another dog who looked exactly like her furry companion while on a walk, it was only natural for them to strike up a conversation.
The unexpected encounter occurred while they were heading to the local farmers' market and noticed a puppy named Beast, who happened to be adopting with Last Hope K9 Rescue.
Rogue and Beast shared a striking similarity as they were both cairn terrier mixes. Rogue's ancestry consisted of a Labrador and Pit Bull mix with a Cairn, while the exact parentage of the Beast remained uncertain, although his papers indicate a Cairn inside of him, he appears to have some Basset features, due to his body type.
At first, Bethany wasn't amused by the idea of adding another pet to her family, as she already had two big cats and Rogue.
However, she couldn't resist the instant connection she felt with Beast and watched the two puppies play happily together. Despite her reservations, she decides to fill out the adoption papers, even taking the first photo of Beast on the market.
Upon bringing home the beast, the older dog tried to assert dominance but was quickly put in his place by the smaller pup. It took about a month for everyone, including the cats, to find their rhythm and adjust to the new dynamics.
Bethany humorously reveals that despite being given identical toys, Rogue always had an eye for anything the Beast possessed, leading to a hilarious exchange between the two.
Currently living in Hawaii, the family couldn't be happier. Beast has embraced the beach lifestyle, enjoying frolics on the sand and waves, while Rogue is happy to raise crabs and even venture into the ocean for a swim.
Bethany shared their plans to outfit Rogue with a life jacket and teach her to surf on a boogie board.
Rogue was adopted from the Boston Animal Rescue League, while Beast found his forever home through Last Hope K9 Rescue. The Coleman family cherishes the bond between the two dogs, who are now inseparable best friends, and enjoy the joy they bring to their lives in their tropical paradise.
