Bringing a new family pet home isn't always an easy decision, especially when someone in the household isn't on board - we're looking at you, Dad. These cute puppies, however, managed to win over their reluctant masters in no time.

Most people who claim not to like these adorable animals will tell you a million reasons why, but sometimes they just need the right family dog to come along, and that's precisely what happened to the Dads you see here. Whether they disagreed with a particular breed or size, or just insisted on not having pets altogether, they each found themselves in love with their unlikely furry companions eventually.

Follow these tail-wagging triumphs of cute dogs below, and share this story with anyone who might need a little 'convincing.' Oh, and the joke's on you, Dad!

Therapy. No replacement. Just making wonderful new memories that help to sweeten the old over time. Once you've shared your life with a dog, life without one is empty. #Alwaysfordogs!!
