Any amount of time spent at a shelter is tough on an animal, but imagine waiting six years for your forever home.
This is the case for a pup named Grey, who has been at the Calhoun County Humane Society for six or seven years now. Grey’s brother was adopted out some time ago, but this senior boy hasn’t had the same luck. With the rescue being located in rural Alabama, it’s tough to find new homes for the furry residents.
Four years ago, photographer Sophie Gamand took Grey’s picture for a project highlighting the sweet nature of bully breeds like Grey. Recently, Wags to Riches Photography came out to the shelter to take new photos of their longterm residents, and sadly, Grey was still there, waiting for his forever home.
When Sophie photographed Grey, he was an adult, but still bright-eyed and excited.
By this point, he’d already been at the shelter for two years.
Grey is a good boy, very gentle and playful with people, but needs to be in a home without other dogs. The shelter staff believe that this, including the difficult location of the shelter, is what’s keeping him from finding his forever family.
Here are the photos of Grey that were taken by Wags to Riches in January, four years later:
As you can see, time has taken its toll on this sweet boy.
Still, the shelter hasn’t given up hope on finding a home for this senior.
If you or someone you know might be a good fit for Grey, make sure you contact the shelter so they can start the matchmaking process!
