This dog stayed at the shelter for 19 years.
The majority of animals in shelters yearn to leave their kennels and find a permanent home. However, not all of them have the ability to draw in adopters and find homes quickly. Some of them stay at the shelter for an extended period of time, particularly the elderly.
One of those elderly dogs is Stuart, who lived his first 14 years of life at Friends of Strays, Inc.
However, one of the staff members, Emily Wozniak, decided to assist in the dog’s adoption because she found it to be intolerable at this point.
This came about after she shared Staurt’s moving story on social media.
Stuart, then 19 years old, was soon adopted by Natalie Snyder. Repo’s Rescue was founded by Natalie.
She made the choice to take in the senior dog herself in order to give him a future and hope.
However, the shelter refuted their claim and informed them that they had determined the shelter to be his home and that leaving would be challenging for him.
Natalie was determined to adopt, so she began convincing the shelter staff that the dog would be better off in his new, cozy home rather than his old shelter.
Stuart was now the happiest senior dog ever after she adopted him.
