Man Devotes His Life To Adopting Old Dogs Who Can’t Find Forever Homes!

Steve Greig is an animal lover so naturally when his dog died, the man felt crushed and empty from the inside. This is when he decided that he would give another dog a second chance to life. But not any other dog, this man precisely wanted the "least adoptable" senior dog because they're often overlooked. But things spiraled rather quickly and now instead of one dog, he cares for many dogs, including other neglected animals!

With over 478k followers on Instagram, Steve has become a very busy man since he’s caring for 10 shelter dogs as well as other overlooked animals! Steve is awake by 5 a.m. every single day so he has enough time to make breakfast for his big family. Most of the dogs have different diets. During his day, he’ll take them to the parks for a walk, vet appointments and most of all, he’ll cuddle and love them all throughout the day!


On Instagram, Steve wrote, “Whenever I sit or lie down at a dog-friendly level, there are always at least three or four of [dogs] attached.” He was also quoted saying, “They’re just wiser animals. You kind of know what you want out of life once you become a certain age. These dogs know who they are and it’s easy to develop a relationship with a person or pet who knows who they are. It’s just fulfilling knowing that these guys are happy and loved and well-taken care of. It makes my days worthwhile.


Apart from the dogs, Steve is also daddy to a pig called Bikini, two ducks, pigeons, cats and a few chickens! Although he has no more room at this time, he does intend to adopt senior dogs sometime in the future. He said, “I decided that the only way I would feel better was if something good happened that probably wouldn’t have happened if he had not died.


So [I adopted] a 12-year-old Chihuahua with a heart murmur and four bad knees.


…And that was just the beginning of all the animals.
