Holyfield, Fighting for Love ~ Adopted

Holyfield, Fighting for Love ~ Adopted
How did i get here?

What did I do wrong? Why am I here? I don’t understand….I gave all my love to my family, played fetch, laid at their feet, looked after them while they slept, nuzzled and licked and loved all they would let me. I didn’t potty in the house. I just don’t know why they don’t love anymore….This place is so scary to me, I miss being loved.

Do you think you could love me for a while? They say I am close to 10 yrs old. HW negative whatever that is…they say that means someone took care of me for a while.
I still like to play, ride in the car, take long naps with you, watch tv, go for walks. I have so much love to give! Do you need some? Cause I will share, I have plenty!

Holyfield is missing part of one ear. I can only imagine that he had to get away from something terrible to survive. Dumped by his family after years of loyalty. He was so scared and had to fight to keep from being dinner for something else. He was so hungry when he got picked up by A.C. Unfortunately, it was a high kill North Georgia shelter that was full.

Because of his age he was at high risk to be put down quickly. People just don’t adopt older dogs. I don’t know why because they are the best most loving dogs, and so grateful.
My dog Daisy is 10yrs old, I love her with all my heart, I could not imagine her in a shelter after all she has given me. Holyfield pulled at my heart, I couldn’t let his life end there….

Won’t you open your heart to this wonderful boy? He is house trained, neutered, UTD on shots and just a love who deserves a loving home to live out his years.

Update Nov. 10: Holyfield continues to be a love. No issues except he needs a family to bestow all of his love on!

Update Nov. 26: This boy is wonderful! Great with kids, cats, people, dogs! so very loving and still spunky! Can you give him a home for the holidays! Please!

Check out this super foster update, and some new photos for Holyfield, our grandpa Aussie! Don’t let the grey face fool you, Holyfield has got a few great years in him left, not to mention senior pets are the most loving. He’d be forever grateful to share your home for the holidays!

“I put the pic of him and the dogs to show he does great in a pack.
He is also completely cat proof. We have two and he was not interested.
He is completely housebroken, crate-trained, and loves everyone, especially children! From the way he acts, he has several good years of life in him. A great dog!”
