For 2.531 days, a lonely dog has sat in a shelter, waiting for one human to love her.

Nobody wanted to believe in this dog, but wait until you hear the happy ending…

Despite the efforts of no-kill animal shelters to find permanent homes for the pets in their care, every now and then a dog is overlooked by potential adopters, despite the shelter’s best efforts.

Dahlia is an example of such a dog. The American Staffordshire Terrier Mix has spent her entire life at the Santa Barbara Humane Society. She arrived at the age of six months. Volunteers at the shelter want to find a forever home for their oldest resident, who is now seven years old.

“She is a really sweet, smart, loving, loyal big lap dog,” one of the shelter volunteers commented on this adorable video of Daliah enjoying all the attention. For her, I’m looking for a wonderful single pet home. She is going to make someone very happy!”


The shelter’s pleading was not ignored. Daliah found a loving home not long after the Humane Society issued their appeal! After seeing her story on the news, a man from Orange County drove to the shelter to meet her.


The Humane Society of the United States is overjoyed. “We are over the moon!” they said in a statement. For those of you who have inquired about Dahlia’s health… She’s found the perfect place to call home for the rest of her life!! Thank you to everyone who took the time to read her story and contact us!”
