The new pet parents had no idea that the dog they just adopted, Luna, was so sensitive, but the fact came as the sweetest surprise to the entire family.

Luna’s beginning wasn’t very great and nurturing. Born to a homeless pit bull and one of the 12 puppies in a foster home, she wasn’t always showered with affection.

It was when Humane Education Society, a shelter in Tennessee, intervened that all the puppies of the pit bull called Melon, slowly started being adopted and finding a forever home.

Luna was one of them.

The lovely pup was now a new addition to a young couple from Chattanooga, Josh Myers and Hannah Huddleston.

To them, the ride home after adopting Luna was forever going to be unforgettable. Myers drove through the streets as Huddleston snuggled close to the small puppy.

Throughout her time with the family, Luna has now grown into a beautiful dog with a lovely mind. The growth still hasn’t stopped, both physical and mental, and the couple are still getting used to her changing.

But this incident took them by surprise–and melted their hearts at the same time.

The family was sitting cozily and watching ‘The Lion King’ on their TV. According to Myers’ Facebook page, Luna was just playing ‘wildly’ with her toys in the same room.

But when the classic tragedy struck in the movie, Luna froze.

“Right as Mufasa falls to his death, she stops and turns to the TV to watch,” Myers wrote.

Luna started making soft noises in the back of her throat just as Simba tries waking up his father.

“To see her crying at the TV was the sweetest thing I think I’ve ever seen,” Myers wrote. “She even lays down right after Simba lays with his dad.”

According to Brad Ladd, one of the adopters of the litter, Luna isn’t alone. The entire litter of siblings have major soft sides to them. “The backstory on this puppy proves that nurture is WAY more important than nature!” Lad commented. “They were loved and spoiled more than any puppies ever.”

The family of dogs, now called The Melon Dozen, sometimes have playdates together so they can get to know each other as they grow up.

“We don’t deserve dogs,” Myers added. “Four months old and she’s already showing empathy.”
