Shelter Dog Wants To Hold Hands With Anyone Passing By
It’s impossible to pass Speck’s kennel at the Bullock County Humane Society without stopping to say, “Hi.”
All Speck’s ever wanted is to love and be loved in return.
Unfortunately, life hasn’t always been kind to this sweet pup and Speck has had to fend for himself out on the streets.
But despite experiencing untold hardships, this sweet little guy has not let his heart harden.
Speck radiates love and wants nothing more than someone to hold on to.
Speck the dog simply loves human interaction, and pops his tiny paws out for people to hold whenever they walk past his kennel.
But sadly, no one did anything more than give him a cursory hello before they moved on to the cuter, younger pups at the Alabama shelter he called home.
This went on for a year and a half, and in all that time Speck never gave up hope that a loving family would “shake on it” and agree to give him a forever home.
There, he’s won the hearts of everyone working there, thanks to his irresistibly sweet personality.
Whenever anyone has passed by his kennel, Speck’s been sticking out his little paw and nobody’s been able to resist giving him some love.
“You could put anything else around him — another giant dog, a cat, but he is just so fixated on getting love from people that he doesn’t care about anything else,” Wilder said.
“He just wants you to touch him,” she 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.”
“All he wants is people love. He will reach his little hand out and he just wants you to touch him and hold his hand,” Desiray Miracle-Wilder, the shelter’s director, told The Dodo.
Speck loves humans so much that not even other dogs, cats or pets can break his concentration when he’s got his eye on a human.
He just wants to shower every person he meets in love and craves any type of affectionate touch.
One day after she cleaned the kennels, Desiray filmed Speck’s adorable hand-holding routine.
“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.”
She hoped someone on social media would finally take notice of this sweet doggo, and boy did it work! After the video clip went viral, everyone wanted to take this little love bug home
Sharing the clip on Facebook, Speck soon went viral with the video going on to generate over 149,000 views.
Following the popularity of the video, Desiray was inundated with messages enquiring about the lovely dog, while those who saw the video but couldn’t adopt Speck themselves sent donations to the shelter instead.
Speck is finally going to get all the love and affection he deserves, and he’ll have a wonderful life running around the farm and playing with his new siblings.
And Speck’s luck has been contagious; since his video went viral, several other pups at the shelter have also found their forever home.
