Adopting a pet is always so exciting! Especially if you adopt animals in need from a rescue, it’s particularly satisfying bringing your new family member into your home…
Some dogs aren’t so lucky because of a stigma that they’re “un-adoptable” because they’re either old or sick. What this man did proves that no matter what, any animal you adopt will accept your love and kindness and be loyal to you for the rest of their lives!
Steve Greig’s dog had passed away leaving him with a portion of his heart that he just could not fulfil. He decided to use that yearning to help rather than sulk around, and adopt a furry friend in need. This time, he wanted to make a difference and go against the grain, he decided to adopt the type of dogs that had difficulty finding a forever home rather than a puppy that would have no issues being adopted.
The first pup he adopted was a “12-year-old Chihuahua with a heart murmur and four bad knees.” When he saw the happiness and joy his new pup had brought bak into his life, he proceeded to adopt 10- yes 10! – elderly dogs. Not to mention, he also adopted a pig joyfully named Bikini, a pigeon, two ducks, chickens, and some cats!
Due to his new huge family, Steve devoted the majority of his day to caring for his new friends. He wakes up at 5AM every day to make everyone their breakfasts, often cooking meals to ensure every unique member gets the type of food they require. His schedule also consists of long walks to the park and plenty of veterinarian visits.
Greg believes: “They’re just wiser animals. You kind of know what you want out of life once you become a certain age. These dogs know who they are and it’s easy to develop a relationship with a person or pet who knows who they are. It’s just fulfilling knowing that these guys are happy and loved and well-taken care of. It makes my days worthwhile.”
Due to his kindness and generosity, the Internet was quick to follow. His Instagram account rapidly reach almost 600,000 followers, and the list is still growing! Surely all of the love inspired so many, and people praised the kind man for his efforts.
