Seamus has succeeded in capturing the hearts of the volunteers at the shelter where he has stayed for over five years, and now he is very happy and surrounded by a lot of love for the family he had longed for.
Seamus is a beautiful 9-year-old dog who found his perfect home on December 21 after spending five years at the Fresno Bully Rescue in California.
Shelter manager Bridgette Booth describes Seamus’ adoption as a Christmas miracle.
The volunteers at Fresno Bully Rescue worried that the dog would grow old there without being close to the warmth of a family and now that it has finally been successful, they are happy and sure to never forget him.
The dog is adopted after five years at the shelter
Seamus will be remembered for his love of donut holes, for his walks, and for retrieving a new toy from the shelter’s trash on the way back to his kennel.
Bridgette told CNN:
Each of our adoptions is special to us, but many of our volunteers who were there that day were crying with happiness.
This shelter aims to help them adopt dogs from breeds that are wrongly considered dangerous, such as bulldogs, pit bulls and boxers. Plus, it houses up to 40 dogs at a time, and many more are housed with foster families.
Sadly, dogs like Seamus, who is a pit bull mix, are the first to be euthanized. The rescue center says since it opened in May 2008, they have rescued more than 2,500 dogs from abusive homes and shelters in the county where they have been designated for euthanasia.
Bridgette wants Seamus’ story to reach people’s hearts by teaching how positive it can be to adopt a pet from a shelter, as many of them tend to go unnoticed for a long time, in this case more than five years.
There are many wonderful dogs out there who just need a chance and are often overlooked due to their age or special needs.
The Seamus family are also very happy to have arrived home and they even created an Instagram for him to post photos of his adventures.
The puppy’s father shared the following post:
Seamus is famous because he has so much love from everyone that I’m glad my girlfriend and I were able to adopt him, we love this old man and now he has a home forever.
