Seamus is a senior pit bull that has lived more than half of his life in a shelter in California. He would’ve been put on the euthanasia list if it was any other local shelter because of overstaying. Fortunately for the lonely pooch, he was taken in by Fresno Bully Rescue, a nonprofit, all-volunteer rescue group that operates a no-kill shelter facility.
The nine-year-old dog has spent numerous holidays in his kennel. Waiting for a family that would love him gives him the care and attention he needs.
Laid-back Senior Pit Bull
According to the staff, the dog is very warm and gentle. He easily finds a connection with humans. Usually, the pooch is laid-back.
But because of his background, he has problems interacting with other dogs. That is the only reason why potential adopters tend to overlook him. They also don’t recommend putting him in homes with small children.
Other than that, he is a fantastic dog. His charms even made a family pay for his adoption fees. They loved him, but they already had other dogs. They paid the fees in hopes of increasing his chances of being adopted.
His long stay at the shelter has made him very close to the staff and volunteers. They tried everything that they could to make him happy and comfortable. They also try hard to get him exposure so many more people would get to know him.
The long wait is over.
After almost five and six months, a kind couple met Seamus when the holidays started to roll in. Almost immediately, they fell in love with him. They filed for his adoption, and everyone in the shelter was overjoyed.
Just before Christmas day came, Seamus finally left the shelter and went with his new family. His new owners said that the happy dog was like a puppy again once they got back to their home. He was every bit the dog that they wanted.
