At the shelter known as Bullock County Humane Society, there is one cage that has a sad story in it. In that cage, the dog named Speck resides. He is a very friendly and loving dog. He always insists on saying hello to everyone.
The way he does it is that he will stick out his paw and face for the passerby to notice him. The shelter director Desiray Miracle-Wilder told The Dodo “All he wants is people love. He will reach his little handout 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 had a very difficult life living as a stray dog. But even though his life in the streets was difficult, that did not make him a bad dog. As a matter of fact, he is a very sweet dog. But even though he is sweet, no one has adopted him yet.
The dog is staying in the shelter in Alabama for almost a year and a half. He is trying his best to be noticed to be adopted by a nice family. The director of the shelter said, “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.”
She also 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.”. While Wilder was cleaning out the kennels, an idea passed through her head. She decided to film Speck in action.
She posted the video on Facebook, hoping people would notice it and adopt Speck. The video went viral. The video got the attention of Allie’s Hope For Paws Dog Rescue.
Because of the organisation, the dog who longed for love finally got adopted. Wilder said on Facebook, “He will be running on a 26-acre farm with Mike, his family and two fur brothers! 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!”.
