Family Looks for Lost Dog in the Shelter, But Then No One Picks Her Up

She is the sweetest girl!
Animal control picked up a 6-year-old pit bull mix named Lindsy in May 2016 as a stray and dropped her at the Babylon Animal Shelter in New York. A few days later, a child called the shelter claiming for Lindsy who, according to her, had gone missing recently.

“The child said she would have to ask her father if they could get her,” Kristin Siarkowicz, an animal control officer at Babylon Animal Shelter, said.

However, the family never arrived, and nobody called back. Then, poor Lindsy was abandoned.

It was devastating, but the shelter staff strongly believed that Lindsy would soon find another home because of her beautiful personality.

“She is sweet, kind and laid-back,” Lyndsey Grosjean, a volunteer at Babylon Animal Shelter, said. “She loves to play fetch and rip apart toys. She loves walks and treats and just being with her people.”

However, no one has shown interest in adopting Lindsy, and it has now been two years since she came to the shelter.

Lindsy is now 8-years-old and a senior. Grosjean believes that people may not be wanting a dog of her age and her size.

“She is not a cute little puppy,” Grosjean said. “The older, larger ones just don’t get the attention they deserve from the public. Plus, now that she’s been there for so long, people think there is something wrong with her when there is not. The long-timers get a stigma about them.”

Nevertheless, being in the shelter for too long has not been a problem for Lindsy. She always seems to be full of life.

“She has done very well,” Grosjean said. “She does not seem to be stressed; she has a lot of people who care about her and take care of her. But that’s probably half the reason she is still there — she blends in, she has great kennel behaviour and just seems happy. It’s actually sad though.”

“Lindsy never has bad days,” Siarkowicz said. “She is always tail wagging and ready for attention.”

What Lindsy really needs, however, is a forever home and a family who will love her unconditionally. If Grosjean sees Lindsy finding a forever home, she will “cry with happy tears.”

“This girl deserves a home so much,” Grosjean said. “She is now a senior and needs to find her people. It is heartbreaking seeing these dogs sit and wait and get old with us. It’s not fair, and it’s not their fault they are here. She is a wonderful, happy girl and there is no reason why she has waited so long. All she needs is a chance.”
