Shelter Dog Begs To Hold Hands With Anyone Passing By His Kennel

If you have a chance to go to the Bullock County Humane Society in Alabama, you can’t pass Speck’s cage without stopping to say “Hi” with him. Speck may be a simple dog, but you will never forget his interaction with you.

This cute pup loves human interaction and loves to show his affection to everyone that he meets at the shelter. Whenever he sees someone approaching his kennel, he pushes his face between the metal bars and sticks his paws out of his cage to make friends and hold their hands.

“All he wants is people love,” Desiray Miracle-Wilder, the shelter’s director, told The Dodo. “He will reach his little hand out and he just wants you to touch him and hold his hand. And he’s so sad when you walk off to finish cleaning or whatever you have to do.”

Speck has been a resident at the Bullock County Humane Society since autumn 2018. Before moving into the shelter, he was a stray living on the streets. Just taking a look at the scars on his face, you may know the dog had a tough life in the past. But even after everything that had happened, he is still a sweet and gentle dog.

“He just wants you to touch him,” Wilder added. “If you sit down, he’s laying on you, if you hold his hand, he’ll hold your hand, if you scratch his belly, he’ll roll over.”

But you’ll be happy to know that he’ll soon be going to his new forever home in New York. Speck can find his amazing adopter thanks to the help of Allie’s Hope For Paws Dog Rescue, who fell in love with him after seeing his video on Facebook.

Now, he is waiting for transport so he can finally meet his new owner Mike. In the meantime, Mike is ready and waiting for his companion to arrive. “He will be running on a 26-acre farm with Mike, his family and two fur brothers!” Wilder wrote on Facebook.

After all, Wilder is hopeful that Speck will inspire people to open their hearts to homeless dogs like him. “We are so excited. Not only did Speck get adopted due to this video of his cuteness but he also helped a few other fur babies get rescued and he got us some food donations,” Wilder said.
