There are a million reasons people give for surrendering dogs to shelters (many of them downright idiotic, like these), but one reason you don’t often hear is that the dog is “too good” to keep as a family pet.
But, that’s what happened to 1-year old Binx, an adoptable dog at the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA in Phoenix, Arizona, just 48-hours after he was adopted.
In a Facebook post on Monday, the shelter posted a photo of the very good boy, explaining that only two days after finding what they thought was his perfect forever family, Binx was returned. Their reason? He’s “too good.”
Binx is housebroken, good with kids, good with dogs, and just an all around really good boy. According to his adoption profile, Binx needs a family that is very active! He loves to run, play, go on walks, hikes, and anything that involves being outside and being active.
Apparently, his adoptive family thought he was too good, they wanted more of a challenge.
