Aero, a Doberman mix, was first featured here in August 2017. He was described as a fun-loving, happy dog that “sometimes goes over the top in his exuberance.” It was most likely that exuberance that spoke to his new family, the Taylors, when they first saw him in a video. “Instantly, we knew he was the right fit for our family,” says U.K. native Andrew Taylor. Aero was “just that little bit crazy.”

The Taylors — Andrew, Kyoko and their sons, Taishi and Akeshi — had wanted a bigger dog for a long time but had felt that, with their busy young family, they wouldn’t have been able to give a bigger dog the attention it needed. “As the kids became older,” says Andrew, “we thought it was the right time.”
