Lost PitBull Waited Years At Shelter For Her Family To Pick Her Up, But They Never Came
Lindsy, a pit bull mix, arrived at the Babylon Animal Shelter in New York in 2016. She came when she was 6 years old, the animal control officers had found her wandering in the streets.
Everyone thought that the girl was always a stray dog . But a few weeks later, they discovered her true story.
A child called the shelter saying that Lindsy was the dog of her family and that she had recently been lost.
It turned out that the stray dog had a family, so the shelter was waiting for them to pick her up.
But, unfortunately, that call only created a false illusion. The lost Pitbull waited years for her family to pick her up, but they never did.
When Lindsy turned 8, she became a senior dog, so it was even harder for her to get adopted. Most of the time, in a shelter, the dogs that least attract attention are the old dogs.
However, she did not have bad days, even if she was in her kennel she was always happy and energetic.
The shelter staff felt sad about Lindsy because her family practically abandoned her and also nobody seemed interested in adopting her.
Then, the Babylon Animal Shelter decided to share the story of Lindsy so that she had more opportunities to be adopted. That was how she finally had hope.
A few months ago, she was taken to a foster home where she will be placed in a program to find a forever home.
This time it seems that she will finally be adopted. She is still kind and happy in her foster home.
Some people sometimes fear adopting a senior dog because they do not know how much longer they can spend together with their furry friend. But adopting a senior dog makes each day by his side more special and worthwhile.
