Imagine living the majority of your life in a home with a warm bed, a couch to cuddle on, and backyard to run around in. Now imagine it was gone in an instant. That’s what happened to Puffy, a six-year old pit bull mix who was dumped at a shelter by the only family he’s ever known after five years together. They didn’t even bother to look back as he stared out the window, crying.
When the founder of Long Island Pit Stop Animal Rescue, Suzanne Levin Kaplan, found Puffy and saved his life on the day he was set to be euthanized
Puffy was adopted soon after by who he thought was his forever family - he was wrong.
This past winter, Kaplan received a phone call. Puffy’s family no longer wanted him after their children went off to college and they had no more time for him. So, they dumped him back at the shelter.
All the instability is taking a toll on Puffy – whenever he is in a crate or cage, he bangs his head and body against the walls until he is bruised. He wants nothing more than to be free and in a loving home.
All Puffy wants is to find his forever home with people who love and care about him. After Puffy was returned, Kaplan wasn’t sure if Puffy would remember her – after all, it’s been five years since they last saw each other – but that wasn’t the case.
Puffy instantly recognized her and showered her with love.
Despite all the turmoil and heartbreak Puffy has endured, he remains a loving, affectionate dog. He knows that love is forever – even though his previous family did not.
Puffy is still looking for his forever home. If you are looking for a truly amazing, special dog, consider adopting Puffy by reaching out via Puffy Prays for a Home Facebook page, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 917-685-8422.
