If any of you have ever lost a pet, you will be moved by this story about how this man saved old and unwanted animals.
A man named Steve Greig had a dog that he loved, but it passed away. He felt sad and downhearted. If you have ever had this experience of loss, you will be able to relate to Steve.
He decided that instead of sitting around being sad, he would go on a mission to find another dog. Not just any one. Steve decided to adopt one from a shelter. A dog that was not wanted by anyone and was the least likely to ever be adopted because of its age.
So many of the Pit Bull to the Rescue During a Fireold dogs get overlooked. Steve knows that old dogs still have so much love to give and are happy to receive love. So he looked to the one that was least likely to be adopted into someone’s home.
The dog choice?? A twelve year old dog that had some issues. The Chihuahua had all bad knees and a heart murmur. But the little dog still wanted love.
Steve began adopting more and more dogs. When this article was written, he has ten. Yes. Ten dogs that are old and desperately needed a home.
If you are a pet owner, you are probably well aware how busy your life can be. But can imagine with that big family? Steve says that many of them have different dietary needs, so he gets up early early morning to get them all fed. They also get a lunch time meal, visit and are let outside when he is on a work break. He takes care of all their vet and medication needs as well. Talk about commitment.
He has other farm animals too. And he seems to be very happy taking care of all the crew of previously unwanted animals.
Steve obviously has a very big heart. He says “It’s just fulfilling knowing that these guys are happy and loved and well-taken care of. It makes my days worthwhile”. Steve has been an inspiration to many others, and he is leading the way to show us how we can all do our part.
If you are looking to get a dog, consider one that may be senior or unwanted by others. Or, if you are not able to get a dog, perhaps volunteering at your local shelter is a good option for you.
