Steve Greig still felt shattered, months after his beloved dog went away, and in that agony is when he realized he wanted to make a difference.
“A month or two passed by and I still felt so bad about it,”
“I concluded that the only way I would feel better was if something positive occurred that probably wouldn’t have happened if he had not passed away.”
He took home the older dog that was considered to be the “least adoptable” because he wanted to ensure that the dog had the happy life that it deserved after being rescued.
“As a result, I took in a Chihuahua that was 12 years old and had four knee problems and a heart murmur.”
“…And it was only the beginning of all the creatures,” the narrator said.
He picked the puppies that did not have a high chance of getting adopted, the ones who are typically missed, and gave them a home. He did this since they were often forgotten about.
Now, he is the doting father of eleven senior rescue dogs, as well as a pig, chicken, and turkey, which keeps him quite busy.
Greig gets up every day at five in the morning to prepare breakfast for the animal family he lives with. This is particularly challenging due to the fact that the majority of them follow varied diets.
After that, his agenda is packed with visits to the veterinarian, strolls in the park, and lots of hugs and kisses from his human companions.
On his Instagram profile, Greig said, “Whenever I sit or lay down at a dog-friendly level, there are usually at least three or four dogs attached.” This was in reference to the fact that he often does either activity at dog-friendly levels.
“They are just more intelligent creatures. Once you reach a certain age, you have a better idea of what it is you want to get out of life.
“These elder dogs know who they are, and it’s simple to create a connection with a person or pet who understands who they are,” the author writes. “These older canines have been through a lot.”
“It’s just rewarding knowing that these cute creatures are happy, loved, and getting the care they need,” she said.
“It’s just so fulfilling.” It gives my days purpose and meaning.
“On a typical day, I get everyone ready for the day by waking up at five in the morning and preparing breakfast for them all.”
“Which, as you are probably aware, there are ten [dogs], and the majority of them follow various diets.”
