Dogs that are ready for adoption need only a loving home forever.Unfortunately, it may be difficult for some to find it.
Surrendered or abandoned dogs also have emotions.
They probably feel sad, lonely and in need of care.This is why shelters and rescue groups encourage people to adopt rather than buy from breeders.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, an average of 3.1 million dogs are adopted each year, but only 2 million are adopted.Most shelters have a hard time accepting large and older dogs.
But for a dog like Kane who is both big and old? It is very difficult.
Kane is a large pit bull mix, a breed that many people hesitate to get because they are often misunderstood.
Apartments and apartment buildings usually do not allow large dogs.
Kane has arthritis, one eye is blind and the other cannot see well.
For these reasons, it was difficult for Kiss My Paws to adopt him.People often want to get a dog that will accompany them for a long time.The adoption of an old sick dog destroyed that goal, so those looking around looked away from Kane.
Moreover, Kane needed medical help.
Kane was in foster care, awaiting adoption.
He was in the care of Carol Sandy, who often took Kane for walks in the park to socialize with other big dogs.She appreciated Kane’s behavior, all the reasons that would make him a good pet.
But despite this, it took him a long time to find his eternal home.Phil and Ewa Halverson adopted Kane, and now he has the love and care he deserved.
Now he has a permanent home, a family and a sister, Mango, who was also the oldest dog.The couple immediately fell in love with Kane.They saw the report and Carol’s Facebook post and decided they wanted to take him on.
