When Coleman and his wife were perusing the colorful booths at a nearby farmer’s market, one dog caught their eye because it resembled Rogue. Their adventure with an 8-month-old dog they dubbed Beast began with this fortunate meeting, as they accepted the idea that fate had planned their meeting.
Coleman and Rogue took a leisurely stroll through the market, negotiating the difficulty of locating a flat that would accommodate their varied family of two people, two cats, and Rogue as the only dog. But the striking similarity of a neighboring dog to their cherished Rogue won them over, not the vibrant display of fresh fruit.


Coleman remembers the incident, “Rogue and I connected with him right away. From stature to coat, he looked a lot like Rogue. Their common cairn terrier heritage frequently leads others to wonder if they are siblings.


Rogue, the only dog in the family at first, greeted Beast with wide arms, as though they were long-lost relatives finally reunited. There was no biological relationship between them, but a strong attachment developed.


The more they travelled together, the more Rogue liked Beast’s toys. “At first, we would get Beast and Rogue identical toys, but Rogue would always gravitate towards whatever Beast had, often playfully snatching it from him,” Coleman remembers with fondness.


Beast grew up to be a beloved cuddling buddy who competed for attention with the family’s feline relatives. Their relationship is still unshakable even after they have moved to Hawaii, which is evidence of its lasting power.


In thinking back on their cross-country travels that strengthened their bond, Coleman says, “Our trip across the country reaffirmed that this small family will always remain together.”
The touching story of their meeting and Beast’s adoption is a moving reminder that fate sometimes unintentionally brings like spirits together.
