It sometimes takes time for dogs to get adopted from shelter homes. However, that doesn't mean that they are not loved or well-taken care at the shelter home. They are given the full attention and care that they need. And this dog is a good example of that. This dog was adopted after 500 days from the shelter home and he was given the best possible farewell from the staff.

In a video posted on Reddit by u/UnitedLab6476, one by one the shelter workers can be seen putting colorful garlands on a pit bull. The overlay text reads, "Shelter dog gets adopted after 500 days and says goodbye to shelter workers." He clearly has his favorites as he licks and tries to get onto some workers. Every staff pets him before putting on the garland on his neck and he enjoys all the attention. The video ends with the dog being held by his new owners.

The video is captioned, "Shelter dog adopted after 500 days." It has about 16.9k upvotes on Reddit. People loved the way he was sent off from the shelter. u/TheLordVader1978 commented, "You can tell which one of the shelter workers was his best friend." u/needs_a_cheeseburger wrote, "So much of the feels. At last, your furever home." u/Lillithsquirel said, "Yep, that made me weepy. So, happy for the dog and family!"

u/beastmodeChadF13 commented, "There is one thing in this world that can make me cry. It's dogs and people's love of them. It gets me every time. I adore this pup and I adore every single one of those people. I just wish everyone treated every living thing this way."

Every dog deserves a loving family who will love him and take care of him as their own. In a similar story, a man took home a 16-year-old dog from the shelter thinking that he might die soon but instead, the whole experience changed the dog's life for the better. In a video posted on Reddit, in a few months, the dog could be seen galloping around the yard. Henry can be seen running behind his foster dad and chasing him.

The man who fostered Henry was Zach Skow. When he took him home, the dog didn't want to walk, he couldn't hear and couldn't see out of one eye. He was really confused. Skow was unsure if Henry would make it for long. He said, "I just wanted to get him home, give him love, give him a couple of days, couple of weeks."

According to Skow, he got better after that first night of sleep. He was later taken to a vet to remove his testicular cancer as well. So after a month and a half, they started to get adoption applications for him. Soon, Henry found a new home and his mom ran an Instagram channel called @seniordoghenry.

Unfortunately, he passed away on January 6, 2022. "He passed peacefully with myself and our family by his side. He passed in my arms and in my lap with love, ear rubs, boops, and loads of kisses from me and the girls," said a post on the Instagram page.
