Delaware shelter dog finds home after 866 days

In Newark, Delaware, a four-year-old mixed breed pup who spent nearly half her life in a shelter has been adopted; and although it took 866 days, the outcome for Charlize is just perfect.

According to the Delaware SPCA, Charlize had been transferred to the shelter in July 2018. A social media post later dated October 2019  described her:

“Hi!! I’m Charlize!!! I’m an energetic, loving girl who’s looking for my FURever home. Can anyone guess how long I’ve been waiting? Well, I’ve been at Delaware SPCA since July 7th, 2018. That’s 471 days. Seems crazy, right? I actually came from another local rescue before I made my way here, so it’s been longer than just my stay here. The staff like to take me out to the big field because I LOVE to run around. Playing with tennis balls is my favorite outside activity. I walk really well on a leash and know my basic manners. Some of the tricks I know currently are sit and stay. The kennel can be stressful from time to time especially being here so long. I’m ready to cuddle up on the couch in my forever home.”

And there she waited; that is until a young couple who just purchased a home after returning from deployment decided they needed the companionship and love from a dog. And just like that Charlize, a dog with boundless energy and the most friendly disposition, became a member of Anna and Matthew’s family.
