For over a year, Rocky, a shelter dog, had been waiting for someone to adopt him and give him the love he deserves. He’s been living in a kennel at the Humane Society for Hamilton County, Indiana, for almost a year now.
While Rocky’s friends have found new homes, the shelter dog still awaits a loving family.
A staff member shared, “He doesn’t understand why he’s still here.”
The shelter dog has yet to give up hope in his kennel.
While watching Rocky wait for his forever family is sad on its own, the shelter staff had other plans. The caretakers decided to put the dog’s experience into a new perspective.
The staff put a camera in the dog’s kennel to see what the dog sees daily.
Several people passing by without considering him for adoption.
Regardless, the shelter dog remained happy, with his tail still wagging and a hopeful heart.
When the staff shared the video online, it immediately went viral, reaching millions of views in just a few days. Sadly, the dog’s circumstances have not changed.
Recently, the caretakers again took to their social platform and wrote, “Rocky is still waiting for his perfect person to come along.”
Rocky, the shelter dog, is loyal, friendly, and an extremely affectionate pup who loves to cuddle and play outside. Anyone who adopts him will be lucky to have the company of such an incredible friend.
Rocky has been adopted!
There are many dogs in kennels waiting to be adopted. If you are wanting to bring a dog into your home, we fully urge you to consider adopting them from a shelter. They are the most loving animals you could welcome.
