Shelter dogs have different ways of attracting potential adopter’s attention. Some make adorable whining noises, some howl in desperation, others flash their biggest smile. The friendly dog in this story holds hands with everyone who passes its kennel.
Speck is a lively 2-year-old pup, that was sadly surrendered to The Bullock County Humane Society approximately a year and a half ago, in the fall of 2018. Over time, the pooch watched as many of his fellow shelter dogs get adopted and find their happy forever homes. Speck knew he had to take matters into his own paws, and he found he knew the perfect way of doing it. The friendly dog started to reach out through his kennel and hold hands with everyone who passes his kennel. The friendly pooch loves to interact with humans and craves their attention.
The staff at the rescue shelter couldn’t believe that a friendly and compassionate dog like Speck, has such a hard time finding a home, so they took matters into their own hands. Desiray Miracle-Wilder, a volunteer at BCHS, uploaded a video of Speck reaching his hand through the cage’s metal bars, and adorably enjoying a satisfying belly rub. The video swept through social media, like the Australian bushfires, and adoption requests soon began pouring in.
A kind man, with a 26-acre farm, and a personality that suits the one of Speck’s perfectly, came forward and wanted to adopt the pooch, but there was one problem. The man was located in upstate NY, while Speck was in Alabama. The staff desperately tried to find volunteers that will help transfer the pooch. We recently learned that all of their efforts sadly failed. As a result of the pandemic outbreak, no one volunteered to transfer the pooch, and the adopter withdrew his adoption request.
