When one of Steve Grieg’s beloved dogs passed away, he took the loss very hard. Steve loved animals and was known for helping the ones in need by taking them into his heart and home.
In his grief, Steve decided he wanted to do something to honor his pup so he went to the shelter and asked for their “least adoptable dog.” He left with a 12-year-old chihuahua named Eeyore who had a heart murmur and 4 bad knees. That was just the beginning.
Steve began taking in more needy animals and now has 10 seniors living in his home, as well as pigeons, ducks, a rabbit, and an adorable house pig, named Bikini, who thinks she’s a dog!
Steve loves his adorable animal menagerie that he’s dubbed “Wolf Gang” on Instagram and we think it’s pretty awesome too. According to Steve adopting senior dogs has been a rewarding experience. They are “lower energy and well behaved.”
“They’re just wiser animals,” Steve said. “You kind of know what you want out of life once you become a certain age. These dogs know who they are and it’s easy to develop a relationship with a person or pet who knows who they are.”
If you want to learn more about adopting a senior dog, head on over to Wolf Gang and Steve will show you how great adopting a senior is. Some final words from Steve:
“They just make it feel like home. It’s just fulfilling knowing that these guys are happy and loved and well-taken care of. It makes my days worthwhile.”
Please share the importance of rescuing senior dogs as well as other animals with your family and friends.
