STILL HERE AFTER 5 YEARS! No doubt you've seen those stories about dogs waiting 200, 300, even 500+ days before being adopted. Gilley (short for Gillian) has been at Save the Strays for almost 1,825 days - an incredibly long time to wait for that special someone to come and take her home. Why is she still here? We can't say for sure, but we think it's because she's a pit bull mix. And not a showy blue pit, either - just a plain yellow dog. Our hope - even after 5 years - is that someone will look beyond the purely physical and see what a beautiful dog Gilley is inside. At 7 years young, Gilley still has a lot of stamina. She's just crazy for toys (although she is hard on them; her nickname is 'destroyer of toys.'). But she has slowed down a bit over the past year and is quite happy to just hang out, get a belly rub and take a nap. She's really quite sweet and very loyal. Because Gilley has been here so long, she may need a little time to adjust to a new home and owner. She's lived in a rural environment with few visitors, so she should be introduced to new sights, sounds and people in small doses. Gilley's also initially a little uncertain around other dogs, especially if they're also nervous or too forward. She might do best in a quieter home where she's the only dog or in a home with only one other laid-back dog of similar size because she will play with other dogs once she's comfortable with them. At Save the Strays, we consider the first two weeks (longer, if needed) following adoption to be a trial period and will take Gilley back if the adoption doesn't work out. We are also waiving Gilley's adoption fee because we really, really, really want to see her get the home she deserves. So how about it? Are you tired of spending Saturday nights alone? Wishing for a best friend you can tell all your secrets to? If you give Gilley a second chance at her best life, she might just make your life better, too.
