Rescue Dog Struggles to Find A Home For More Than A Year Because He Looks Different

Every step in Wally’s life has been a struggle. The 10-year-old Pitbull Terrier mix arrived at the Town of Islip Animal Shelter after he most likely lived most of his life without a place to call home.

Despite bearing the signs of his long life on the streets like being blind in one eye and suffering from a severe skin infection, Wally was just glad that he had found a safe loving place. 

The shelter’s staff immediately fell in love with Wally’s loving and bubbly personality. He had a million sloppy kisses to spread around and was happy to share them with anyone who came into the shelter. Sadly though, a few staff members expressed their concerns after seeing that his unique looks scared away a few potential adopters.

Sadly their concerns turned out to be true. Now, a year after arriving at the shelter, Wally still hasn’t found a loving forever home, and it hugely affected his mood. 

When Wally first arrived at the shelter, he was energetic and happy to leave his kennel whenever he could. Now he just stays indoors, looking sad and depressed.

Wally is still available for adoption and is looking for a loving home, preferably without any stairs or kids under the age of 15.
