Animal shelters become temporary homes for rescued dogs. Most of the time, Pitbulls fill up these shelters because they were commonly mistaken for as aggressive dogs.
One day, police officers found Zoltan, a senior Pitbull, tied to a fence. They were unsure what to do with the dog, so they called animal rescue for help.
A rescue team picked Zoltan up at the police precinct. The rescuers were shocked by the dog’s appearance. Somebody cut Zoltan’s ears, and he had patches of hair missing.
Zoltan was taken to New York Bully Crew, an animal shelter that focused on rescuing Pitbulls. They took Zoltan to a vet to be examined and found out that he was blind in one eye. Despite Zoltan’s condition, he still acted sweet to all the volunteers at the shelter.
The shelter posted Zoltan’s story online in hopes of finding his new parents. Dozens of people applied, but one application stood out the most.
Journey to forever home
Cynthia was a woman who was specifically looking for a senior dog to adopt. She felt that it was essential to adopt a senior dog and make every day of their lives a happy one. After three months of waiting, Zoltan was finally taken.
John, the adoption coordinator of the shelter, was so pleased to have found the perfect family for Zoltan. He knew that Cynthia would do her best to take care of Zoltan.
On the car ride to Cynthia’s house, Zoltan would look out the window and bark at everything he saw. He was excited, and it seemed like he knew he was going home.
When they arrived, Zoltan immediately began sniffing all the corners of the house. He jumped on the bed and lay on it as he had never been on a human bed before.
Despite everything that Zoltan has been through, he was the happiest dog that Cynthia had ever seen. Cynthia was inspired and determined to give Zoltan a life he deserved.
