Aftеr 15 Mоnths In Kеnnеls, Blind Dog Gets To Run Free In His Own Field
When a dog joins a shelter, staff and volunteers normally seek to find the dog a suitable placement as soon as possible, whether in a foster home or a loving permanent home.
However, rescue placements do not always occur promptly, and at kill shelters, dogs who do not find homes soon enough are brutally put to sleep.
Dogs that cannot find homes are sometimes held in kennels in no-kill shelters for weeks or months until a family comes along to adopt them.
When a 5-year-old blind Collie called Jacko came at Many Tears Animal Rescue, staff hoped he’d be adopted soon. However, the days became weeks, then months, and Jacko remained in the kennel.
The rescue got even more motivated as time passed to find Jacko a loving home to call his own. But it wouldn’t be simple.
According to the rescue, Jacko is “extremely affectionate and loving with people he knows, but can be mistrustful of those he doesn’t know.” They also stated that Jacko really needed a family to call his own, but they would not give him to just anybody. They wanted him to go to a home that was a good match for him.
“Jacko is hoping to live as an only dog with one special person and would like a rural home with a huge garden where he can run free,” the rescue stated.
After 15 months, the big day arrived: Jacko had been adopted!
The news was relayed on TikTok by the rescue, who said, “Very great news regarding our beloved Jacko! After a year of waiting for staff to come and see him throughout the day, patiently waiting for hugs, a fuss, and some secret cheese, Jacko finally gets to run free in his very own field, with his very own human. Each and every day!”
“He now has unlimited freedom, a committed owner, and even some furry buddies!” said the rescue. Nobody deserves it more than our sweet Jacko. “Congratulations on your adoption!”
