He now is the center of their lives and they are the center of his. He loves cuddling with his family and chasing tennis balls. His family is very thankful for the shelter and it's faith in him.
Kirby or Granddaddy Long-Legs as he was known in the shelter, is proof of the potential shelter dogs have. In the words of his owner, "While he found his forever friend in me, I found my best friend in him."
His story- "4-14-12: The day I got my best friend. We stepped into LHS and that's when I realized it was really happening: I was finally going to get a dog. My mother told me it was probably going to take a while to find the perfect dog that was suited for both me and my family. She was wrong. That was the day I found Kirby. From that day on, it's been a crazy, hectic life with Kirby. We began basic obedience in 4H Dog Club and it has led us to compete in NADAC Agility trials. Though Kirby isn't the smartest or fastest dog in the world, he's the best dog a girl could ask for."
We also want to feature those still waiting on their forever homes. These dogs are available through the Lexington Humane Society:
"After being in a local shelter for over a year Daisy and her litter mate were adopted. The adoption took place a little over a month ago. Turns out the family bonded with the other dog and has chosen to reho...me Daisy. Daisy is being fostered while we try to find her a true forever home. Daisy is a beagle/spaniel mix about 5 to 6 years old weighing 35 - 40 lbs, spayed and up to date in her shots. She is extremely intelligent, eager to please and LOVES attention. She is getting along great with her foster mom's senior shih tzus."
