Ginny is a mixed Pit Bull dog who was unfortunately found on the streets, however, she came to the animal organization called Lexington Humane Society (LHS) in Kentucky, where she stayed for 1,000 days, but after almost three years in the shelter and being one of the residents with the longest time, one person saw how special she was that she was eventually adopted; Because of this, her caregivers gave her a farewell party, where they wished her luck in her new life.

Due to the breed she was, Ginny’s caregivers believed that many people were not interested in her, other than the fact that she needed a home without children or other pets, but in the end, the long wait was worth it, because she found her better half.

Sadly, this is the situation that many shelter dogs suffer from, spending a long time and even a lifetime waiting for a family, but thanks to the many efforts of Ginny’s caregivers, she was able to be adopted.

The story of this stray dog dates back to December 2019, they found her wandering and no one claimed her. Days, months and years passed, no one asked for her, despite the many efforts of the rescuers, as she received leash training, crate training and learned basic obedience, this in the purpose of getting them interested in her.

Meghan Hawkins, the director of community engagement for LHS, told PEOPLE:

“Few people can tolerate life in a shelter for the time it has, but Ginny has always prevailed no matter what,”

A thousand days, what a bad situation for this dog, but it was in 2023 that she was finally able to find the ideal family. After seeing all his companions leave, it was his turn to start a new life.
