Well, now it’s truly a Full House!

Actor and comedian Dave Coulier, best known for his role as the lovable Joey Gladstone on ABC’s 1990s sitcom Full House, met 8-year-old Shorty during a Best Friends Animal Society adoption event in Salt Lake City in May 2013. The two hit it off, but Coulier wasn’t sure the pit bull/Bassett Hound mix would get along with his 14-year-old Lab named Ranger. He decided not to take him home, and Shorty found another adoptive family.
Eight months later, Coulier received a text message from Best Friends: Shorty had been returned and was up for adoption once again.
Coulier contacted the dog’s fostering organization, Community Animal Welfare Society, and Best Friends’ Pup My Ride program arranged a transport from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles. Shorty and Ranger met, easily bonded and became pals. The rest is history, and the result is a full house.
“Shorty is now a member of our family and the happiest pup in the world,” Coulier says. “He greets us in the morning and throughout the day with his tail wagging and a smile in his eyes. It’s so rewarding to know that this guy will have a happy home for the rest of his life.”
