The majority of dogs in shelters are picked up as stray canines. Some of them may have belonged to a home until their owners were forced to give up the dog due to a life-changing event.
Dogs who were once part of a loving family have a difficult time adjusting to life at the animal shelter and frequently get sad. All they want is to be reunited with their loved ones.
Julep is a canine that once belonged to a caring owner. For approximately 18 years, she was the ideal dog for her owner, and she was content. Regrettably, Julep’s owner died unexpectedly, and no one in the man’s family offered to take her home. Soon, Julep found herself in an animal shelter, where she felt isolated.
Julep simply wanted to return home to her human and was baffled as to why she couldn’t. There was also a slim possibility she would be adopted because most individuals who come to the shelter seeking for a dog choose puppies or dogs that are younger. No one would want to adopt Julep because she is already 18 years old.
The senior dog was expected to spend the rest of her days at the animal shelter. That is, until a man riding a motorcycle arrived at the shelter especially looking for Julep. Wane Lerch, a local DC resident, is this person. Wayne, it turned out, had been grieving since the death of his beloved pit bull two weeks before he arrived at the shelter to adopt Julep.
When Wayne checked his Facebook account, he saw a petition for Julep’s adoption and decided to help. He decided he needed to meet Julep and called the animal shelter to set up an appointment. While riding his motorcycle to the shelter, Wayne was debating whether or not he should adopt Julep.
However, he knew he wanted to adopt Julep as soon as he arrived at the shelter and met her. Wayne couldn’t take Julep with him at that time because he was riding a motorcycle. As a result, he returned home on his motorcycle, returned to the shelter in his car, and finally went back home with Julep.
Julep was adopted just within a month of arriving at the animal shelter, despite the odds. Staff and volunteers at the shelter were sad to see her leave, but they were also delighted and excited that Julep would be going to her new permanent family.
