A pit bull-boxer mix named Sandi has been at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society for more than six years. The current employees know that her former owner brought her to the Indiana shelter all those years ago.
However, they know very little else. After all, the pooch, who’s now 12 years old, has been at the Humane Society longer than any of them.
Still, the fact that she has been at the shelter for a whopping 2,461 days does not matter. Christy Bernardin, a board member of the Marion-Grant County Humane Society, says that they love having Sandi around and would never even think of giving up on her.
Christy further explains that they don’t put down their animals. Hence, even if nobody ever adopted her, the pit bull mix was assured of a home at the shelter. Sandi would live out the rest of her life there.
However, a forever family is still the best-case scenario for any shelter dog, especially one like Sandi, who has been overlooked for such a long time. Thankfully, two dog lovers named Erin and Cary Rhodes learned of the canine and expressed an interest in taking her home.
The pair, who count themselves among the supporters of the Marion-Grant County Humane Society, recently lost their beloved dog. They decided to adopt Sandi because, as Erin says, they could not stop thinking about her.
The shelter employees were so happy to finally find a forever home for the pit bull mix that they went all out at her freedom walk. Usually, they only announce a dog’s adoption on their Facebook page, but this time, they laid out a red carpet for Sandi.
The overjoyed workers gathered outside to bid farewell to their longest resident and wish her well. Sandi, wearing an adorable red crown, loved all the attention she got. Watch the canine’s last day at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society in the video below:
