Keeping a pet is a full-time job. A lot of attention, time and of course plenty of love is required. While we understand the responsibilities that come with keeping pets, our kids don’t and we can’t always say no to them. So, when they demand a cute little puppy for Christmas we have to consider a lot of different factors. First thing’s first, we gotta make sure if we can afford one. Then, we see if our building or apartment allows pets. Lastly, we have to make sure whether all the family members are okay with keeping pets. In most cases, everyone is fine with pets except the dads. Kids have to walk an extra mile to make dads change their mind and eventually they do succeed. But dads still refuse to accept them.

No matter how big and tough a person is, an adorable puppy will always melt anyone’s heart. One can not resist their cute face and silly actions that demand nothing more than love. No matter how much they deny it, they secretly love the little puppers. That’s exactly how dads are around dogs. They don’t want the “damn dog” in the house, but at the same time, they want to nap with their child’s little four-legged buddy. We found 50 photos of dads who couldn’t stand dogs at first, but ended up being their best friends. Scroll down to see the heartwarming photos and touching stories.

Eventually, we have to surrender. This is just what happened with all these dads. Here’s what people think about the above photo:
