It is unavoidable to pass a small kennel at the Alabama Bullock County Humane Society shelter, without stopping to give a big hello to a friendly little dog named Speck, who spreads his little paws for anyone who passes his cage to take them, greet him and give him away. caress a good time.
The lovable Speck also tends to stick his face between the metal bars to convince those close to him that it requires a little affection.
Desiray Miracle-Wilder, director of the shelter, told The Dodo:
All he wants is for people to love him, he holds out his little hand and just wants you to touch him and hold his hand. And it’s very sad when you go out to finish cleaning or whatever you have to do.
DOG SITS IN HIS KENNEL AND GREETS
Speck has spent about a year and a half going unnoticed in his kennel and waiting for a large family to choose him and decide to adopt him. Despite the scars that reflect his previous and difficult life on the streets, this dog is very affectionate and only seeks the affection of people.
He is so obsessed with getting the love and attention of people that you can put another animal or any object and he will not care.
“He just wants you to touch him, if you sit down, he is leaning over you, if you hold his hand, he holds yours, if you scratch his belly, he turns over.”
One day, Desiray was cleaning Speck’s kennel, when she came up with the idea of filming the sweet daily scene of the friendly dog. She wanted people to realize how special Speck was and was hopeful that this video would catch the attention of many people.
Desiray posted the video on her Facebook page and it quickly went viral, garnering more than 400,000 views in just a few days. The striking video of the Speck managed to steal the attention of Allie’s Hope For Paws Dog Rescue, who would take it upon themselves to get him out of the shelter and get him a forever home.
Almost immediately, Allie’s Hope For Paws Dog Rescue connected the shelter with a possible family who decided to stay with Speck.
“He will race on a 26 acre farm with Mike, his family and two other furry brothers. We are so excited. Not only was Speck adopted because of this cute video, but he also helped rescue other babies and got us some food donations! “
Now, the loving Speck is enjoying his days with his loving family, leaving behind the difficult days of his sad past.
There are still plenty of dogs to be adopted at the shelter, but Desiray hopes Speck’s story inspires people to open their hearts and bring a homeless dog home.
