Drools, a 4-year-old Pit Bull-Boxer mix, was brought to the rural Conour Animal Shelter in Monte Vista, Colorado, nearly two years ago.
After seeing the boy’s cheerful and extremely approachable personality, the staff were confident that the adorable little boy would soon be adopted. On the other hand, Drools has been in shelters for a record 720 days and he has little chance of finding a new home for himself.
Kacey Widetich, a “Relay For Rescue” volunteer, has been caring for Drools for several months and believes that one of the reasons he’s gone unnoticed all this time is his lack of exposure. Drools’ “undesirableness” is also due to him becoming anxious around other dogs and cats and having to be the only pet in the house.
Due to constant rejection, Drools’ emotions are affected. In recent months, the normally optimistic dog has felt particularly lonely, depressed and hopeless. Kacey immediately recognized the dog’s lack of intelligence. Now, she spends her evenings tending to Drools in his crib, making him feel loved and protected.
In a desperate attempt to find the Drools a perfect home, the shelter appealed to the public for support. At first, Drools is wary of strangers, but once he interacts with them, he becomes incredibly devoted and likable. He enjoys moderate to vigorous hobbies and gets along well with young people.
Please contact Conour Animal Shelter or Relay For Rescue if you believe Drools is the dog for you.
Conour Animal Shelter is also raising funds to ensure that not only the Drools but all the other dogs they care for have happy lives and find loving homes.
