A dog named “Ned,” has been homeless for over 830 days…though Ned is alive, and his basic needs are being met, it has been a tremendously long time since he has been a true member of a family.
Ned is being cared for by the non-profit, no-kill rescue agency, It Takes A Village Canine Rescue, which wants to see this deserving dog with a family for Christmas. On December 15, the rescue group created a Facebook post for the long-time resident of the shelter:
835 days! That is how long I’ve been waiting for a forever home! Why doesn’t anyone want me? I’m a good dog. Yes, I might have a little energy, but that just means I will help you with a New Years resolution to stay active and take me for walks! I’m living at the ITV Rescue Center. Come see me! Ask for Ned! I’m sponsored!!
The post generated a great deal of attention for Ned – in fact, he even had a potential adopter. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out. On Thursday, the rescue agency wrote:
NED UPDATE: We are overwhelmed with the showing of support for our beloved Ned. Unfortunately, the adoption meeting tonight did not work out for Ned. Ned is a high energy dog so that is why he is having difficulty finding him a home. Ned needs an active family who can take him on daily walks or runs, as well as give him a place to run and play. Thank you to everyone for sharing him. We will continue our search for the right fit for him.
