Higgins is a sweet German Shepherd who was quickly accepted as a puppy. The terrified canine, however, returned to the shelter just days after his adoption. No one came seeking for Higgins once the staff learned he was unhappy in his new home.
But it’s been over six and a half years since that day, and Higgins is still trapped in the shelter. Higgins has now spent 2381 days in the shelter after being rejected and passed on multiple times, according to volunteers with The Humane Society of Preble County in Ohio.
As he isolates himself to a lonely spot all day, his playful demeanor has turned gloomy. Higgins’ prospects of finding a home have significantly decreased as he has grown older.
The shelter has pleaded with the public to give this precious and charming youngster a second chance and to save him from the anguish of an empty life. Let’s spread the news and assist Higgins find a forever home as soon as possible.
Update: We are happy to share that a man named Brendon Reed has adopted Higgins! The pair instantly got along like a match made in heaven. We are so relieved that Higgins got the second chance he deserves. This has left us in happy tears!
