MAN DEVOTES HIS LIFE TO ADOPTING OLD DOGS WHO CAN’T FIND FOREVER HOMES

He wanted to find the dogs who had been neglected and ignored and who didn’t seem likely to ever find a forever home.

The result? He now has ten shelter dogs who couldn’t be happier that he’s bringing them all home.

He even has an Instagram full of photos and has tens of thousands of followers who love to see the antics he and his dogs do on a daily basis.

Taking care of them is a lot of work, and he has to get up at five in the morning to make a big breakfast for all his canine children.

They all have specific diets that need to be catered for, which is a lot of work.

Then, after dinner, he takes them all for walks in the park, vet appointments, and fills the rest of their day with the cuddles and petting they deserve.

It is easy to have these older dogs because there is no need to train them, kennel them or teach them new tricks or obedience.

They like to take their lives slowly, and that suits Steve just fine.

When he sits down after a long, hard day, there are always a few dogs tied to his legs that just want to say thank you for taking care of them.

He has a real animal farm in his backyard, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Although he doesn’t have room for any more senior dogs, he plans to expand in the future so that no shelter dog ever feels unloved again.
