Overlooked Shelter Dog Spends 3 Years Waiting For A Home To Call Her Own

Overlooked Shelter Dog Spends 3 Years Waiting For A Home To Call Her Own

All shelter dogs live in hope that they will soon meet their forever parents who will hold them in their arms and make them feel loved. All pups deserve that love.

Sadly, many shelter dogs get disappointed because potential adopters pass them by without even giving them a chance. The canines feel invisible because they are overlooked every single day.

Despite being ignored, they never lose hope that one day, their forever parents will come and take them to their forever home.

Kylie is one of those wonderful shelter pups who knows exactly how it feels to be disappointed and overlooked time after time. 

More than anything in this world, Kylie wants a chance. She longs to meet humans who will give her the love that she deserves.

Kylie Was Surrendered

Kylie once had a real home and family. She lived on a farm and life seemed great. After she got pregnant, her family continued taking care of her. 

However, as time passed, it became clear that the delightful doggo had a difficult pregnancy and that she would need a C-section. 

Since Kylie’s family couldn’t afford it, they made the decision to surrender her to the Spokane Humane Society in Washington. They wanted their pooch to get the medical care that she needed.

Fortunately, Kylie gave birth to beautiful, healthy puppies who ended up finding great homes. 

On the other hand, Kylie remained at the shelter, wondering why her parents had left her. She missed their love and hoped to see them again.

The shelter staff felt sad because nobody expressed any interest in adopting the wonderful mama dog. 

Moving To Another Shelter

Hoping that she would have better luck in another city, the Spokane shelter transferred her to the Benton-Franklin Humane Society, in Kennewick, Washington.

Julie, one of the volunteers at the Kennewick shelter, fell in love with the delightful pup. She tries to give her a lot of love and play with her as much as she can.

“I’ll sit in the kennel with her and she’ll sit with me. She likes getting pets. It’s tough for her because she doesn’t get as much people time as she would like,” Julie told GeoBeats Animals. 

Kylie, along with the other shelter residents, are happy when more volunteers come to the shelter to play with them. 

“She’s so excited, otherwise they are stuck in their kennels usually for around 22 hours a day,” Julie said.

As soon as she hears the shelter staff and volunteers approaching her kennel, Kylie greets them with a toy in her mouth. Her tail starts wagging and her beautiful eyes start sparkling with love. That’s her way of saying that she can’t wait to play with them.

Julie loves seeing Kylie smile. She often surprises her with a new toy that she buys for the pup on her way to the shelter.

The Adorable Doggo Loves People

Before she was surrendered, Kylie lived on a farm and she used to interact with other animals.

After spending three years at the shelter, Kylie’s behavior towards other animals changed. Now, she doesn’t like hanging out with them.

Julie thinks that the fact that Kylie doesn’t like other animals is her main obstacle concerning finding a home.

“I think that is 90% of the reason why she hasn’t found a home because most animal lovers have a dog or a cat. So to find someone that fits Kylie’s needs is really tough,” she said.

Kylie loves spending time with people. Julie introduced her to her nieces and the sweet pup was overjoyed to meet them and play with them. 

The affectionate pooch has a lot of love to give. All that she needs is a chance. 

As Julie said for GeoBeats Animals, their area has “a huge pet overpopulation problem”, and it’s difficult to find a foster for Kylie. 

The shelter staff continues believing that their delightful girl will find a wonderful home that she really deserves.

The lovely dog would be over the moon to leave the shelter and soak up the love her family would give her. 

We hope that the adorable pooch will soon find her happily-ever-after. We would love to see her smile. Just like all canines, Kylie deserves to be showered with infinite affection and love.
