After over 930 days at an animal shelter, a dog who has the sad designation of “longest resident,” is losing hope. Baisley, a pit bull mix, arrived at the Babylon Animal Shelter in New York back in 2015.

Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, his kennel run is passed by and he remains overlooked and unwanted. On October 12, a description of this long-time was provided to followers of the Baisley Needs a Family Facebook page:

Baisley is one of our most relaxed dogs in the kennels. Most times when you walk into the kennel, you will find Baisley calmly laying on his bed with his front legs crossed. When he sees that you have a leash in hand, then he will expend his energy to stand up, stretch, and wait for you to take him out.
Baisley enjoys leisurely walks on our trail and time with his toys in our yards. Baisley is also a talker. He will talk you to death until you give him what he wants, his toy or attention!

According to the shelter, Baisley would do best as the only pet in the household. Baisley has been homeless for far too long – please take a moment to like his Facebook page, and share his adoption information. Networking helps boost adoption rates and saves lives!

    “Only pet in the household” seems to be the kiss of death for these poor dogs. Most people who are looking for a dog already have one (or more). I feel sorry for Baisley.

      I do too and he gets along well with others…..they need to let him go into a home where he can have a brother or sister…..this is so unfair.

      agree who are they to make this decision since he’s been with them all this time? they should be looking at a foster home to see how he does and go from there. I think they mean well, but they make it almost impossible to adopt them out

    The shelters are often wrong about “would do best as an only dog” – I adopted a supposedly dog aggressive dog that was just unsocialized and would bark, but she was frightened, not mean. She now has several doggie BFF’s. Another was supposed to be completely non-reactive to dogs, and she at first attacked or tried to attack almost every dog she met, especially at a first meeting. She’s friendly enough for a dog park now, as well as good with her pack. Sometimes you just need some time and patience.

    This breaks my heart. Truly breaks my heart. Sometimes the testing they do on shelter dogs is so inappropriate because it doesn’t apply. It’s irrelevant to a home situation unless they’ve had the dog at another home and it’s based on evidence. If it’s based on speculation, it’s faulty.

    Why is everybody says its so unfair, sometimes there are dogs that have to be solo, we have some at our shelter, and yes its hard to adopt them out. Sending prayers for a special person or family that will take him.
    sending my love with prayers for his freedom
