Gio 2

The saying goes, “patience is a virtue.” For one dog, it took more than patience to survive his stint at a shelter in North Fork, New York.

Unfortunately, the pup named Gio struggled to adapt to shelter life. He lost weight and often paced back and forth. Gio just wanted a human to call his own.

The pup returned to a shelter after a bad adoption experience. According to Gabrielle Stroup of the North Fork Animal Welfare League in Peconic, “He was adopted and then sadly ended up back at the shelter when an older dog in the home would not accept him. [Gio] is not doing well at the shelter at all. He just wants a person.”

Thankfully, some local attention helped Gio find a forever home. Two days after his story ran in Patch, he was adopted.

In the video below, Gio and his human play together. It looks like a match made in heaven to us!
