A sweet 12-year-old dog spent over 6 years of his life in a shelter, but was eventually adopted and now has a forever home.
A 12-year-old dog named Sandi spent nearly 6 years at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society in Indiana, USA, or 2,461 days. Despite the fact that the place was practically her home for the dog, the volunteers wanted her to have a real family and she was eventually adopted.
A couple decided to adopt Sandi. Shelter staff were very happy for her and sent her away with a red carpet and a crown; they were really touched and happy for her.

Sandi was living on the streets when she came to the shelter years ago, and although she’s adorable and very sweet, people haven’t adopted her. Yet Sandi played with the volunteers and always seemed happy.
People at the shelter jokingly called Sandi the owner of the place, as she had been there even longer than some employees, but everything changed for the friendly dog when Erin and Carrie Rhodes visited the shelter.
The couple had recently lost their pet and were looking for a dog to give her love and a home, so as soon as they saw Sandi they fell in love with her and decided to adopt her.
The day she returned to her new family, the people at the shelter gave her a wreath and everyone happily said goodbye. She managed to adapt to her new home in no time and her parents pamper her, even creating an Instagram account for her.
The 6 years she waited to find a home paid off, and now Sandi is happy with her family.
Like this sweet little dog, there are many other animals waiting to find a family. Adoption can always change a dog’s life.
The Marion-Grant County shelter has many other animals waiting to find homes. You can visit their website and learn more about the work they do.
