Being an older dog with vision and skin problems, Rose was always overlooked and missed. But her day has finally arrived.
It’s not secret that when looking for a new pet, individuals are more likely to adopt pups.
However, this forces older dogs and canines with health difficulties to stay in their kennels. And, all too often, the waits are too long – sometimes even resulting in the death penalty.
Rose, a 9-year-old Beagle / pit bull mix, had to wait 756 days at the Humane Society of Scott County, without end.
People would ignore the dog because she had vision and skin problems. But she is now in a loving permanent home where she may finally finally live as a pet!
Requirements for young, healthy dogs are flooding the shelters. Few people show up willing to receive an older dog who might need a little extra love and care.
Shelters around the country are hopeful that Rose’s tale will raise awareness about the pets who are often forgotten and simply need love like everyone else.
