We love hearing stories about dogs finding their furever homes! They are such sweet, loyal, and loving animals that deserve to receive not only humane care but also unconditional love. Dog rescue and adoption stories always bring a smile to our faces. Hopefully, this one will bring one to yours!

A shelter pup’s life was changed after a video of him went viral. Speck was a stray dog that ended up at the Bullock County Humane Society. He went through immense hardship while on the streets, but during the year that he lived at the Humane Society, he was the sweetest boy. Every time someone passed by his kennel, he would stick his paw out to hold their hand as well as get some pets from them.

Speck had so much love to give that Hope for Paws Dog Rescue reached out after seeing the video of him holding the hands of people passing by. They found him a forever home! He now gets to live on a twenty-six-acre farm with a loving family and two other dogs.

We’re so happy that this sweet dog is finally getting the love that he deserves! If you’re considering adding a furry member to your family, remember: adopt, don’t shop!
