- Speck is a very sweet dog who never misses to say hi to anyone who comes by his kennel at a shelter
- After the shelter’s director posted a video of his sweet gesture on Facebook, it opened the opportunity for him to get adopted.
- Now, Speck is just waiting to meet his new family and the director is hoping that his other friends left at the shelter will get adopted too.
Who can resist to say “hi” to Speck at the Bullock County Humane Society?
Nobody—because everytime Speck sees someone passing by his kennel, he would stick his face out and extend his paws.
“All he wants is people love,” the shelter’s director, Desiray Miracle-Wilder, told The Dodo. “He will reach his little hand out and he just wants you to touch him and hold his hand. And he’s so sad when you walk off to finish cleaning or whatever you have to do.”
Speck has stayed in his kennel at a shelter in Alabama for a year unnoticed. All he wanted was to have a family who would choose him and love him unconditionally. With the scars on his face, one might think he was hardened by the rough life he had on the streets for years. But Speck is actually a very trusting and gentle dog.
“You could put anything else around him — another giant dog, a cat, but he is just so fixated on getting love from people that he doesn’t care about anything else,” Desiray said.
“He just wants you to touch him. If you sit down, he’s laying on you, if you hold his hand, he’ll hold your hand, if you scratch his belly, he’ll roll over,” she added.
Last Thursday, Desiray thought of taking a video of the pup’s sweet gesture. She posted the video on Facebook and never would’ve expected it was going to get viral so quickly with 96,000 views after a few days only.
The sweet video reached Allie’s Hope For Paws Dog Rescue, who immediately got in touch with an amazing adopter to help the shelter dog.
“He will be running on a 26-acre farm with Mike, his family and two fur brothers!” Desiray wrote on Facebook. “We are so excited. Not only did Speck get adopted due to this video of his cuteness but he also helped a few other fur babies get rescued and he got us some food donations!”
Now, Speck is just waiting to be transported to his new forever home. But he has left behind other sweet dogs who are still waiting to get adopted. Desiray is hopeful that Speck’s story will inspire others to give his friends loving families of their own.
