it’s a real shame that Amy Santiago is deathly allergic to dogs because

  • well they are dogs and she’s missing out
  • but also imagine an AU where Amy works at an animal shelter and Jake is the guy that visits regularly to play with the cats and the dogs and go on walks with them and just volunteer
  • he has never adopted any of the animals bc his girlfriend is, like, weirdly against pets
  • there is one very beautiful, too big for his own good, shy dog that is scared of most people
  • he is not scared of Jake bc he’s sweet and gentle and patient with the dog
  • they are BEST FRIENDS
  • so anyway he’s crushed he can’t adopt the doggo and Amy is crushed that such a great guy wastes his time on a girl who doesn’t like pets like what the heck
  • One Day Jake waltzes into the shelter with the biggest smile, even bigger than usual, and Amy’s like
  • What
  • are they makind Die Hard 6? are you engaged now? what is happening
  • but he says NOPE
  • I’m adopting Butler today (that’s the dogs name. his fur is colored in such a way that he just looks like he’s in a tux. he has a fur bowtie. thank you)
  • also I broke up with Beatrice
  • do you maybe wanna grab a coffee sometime and go to the park with Butler and me?
  • and Amy doesn’t knw what’s happening because that is so much information so she first does the things she knows and understands, she fills out forms for adoption, takes Butler to their resident vet, walks Jake through all the important info even tho he knows, he spends so much time there he might as well be a full time employee
  • and Jake is sure this means Rejection so when Amy finishes everything with
  • “and here is…my number” on a little post-it with a dog paw printed on it
  • he asks
  • “to call if something happens to Butler?”
  • “yeah that and the, uh, coffee thing”
  • Jake leaves the shelter with an even bigger smile and a big happy dog to match
