Shelter heartbroken after senior dog becomes homeless for the second time – through no fault of his own

An animal shelter in New York is heartbroken after a senior dog who was previously in their care was returned, through no fault of his own. On Thursday, the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter posted a photo of nine-and-a-half-year-old Creed, explaining why he was back at the shelter, searching for a home once again:

Well, to say we are heartbroken for Creed would be an understatement.

Creed, formally known as Blu is our 9 1/2 year old boy who originally came to us in May 2019 as an owner surrender due to financial hardship.


His first owner got him as a puppy, from a breeder and had him his whole life until bringing him to us. When asked what he wanted Creed’s next owner to know, he told us that Creed “loves attention and belly rubs.”

A few months later, the attention loving senior dog found a home, but his happily-ever-after was short lived because his new family lost their home and he had to come back to the shelter. The animal welfare agency said:

So like we said, we are totally heartbroken for Creed. He has done absolutely nothing wrong, yet here he is again. We are truly hoping that his third (future) home is going to be his actual forever home.


Creed’s ideal home:

Creed is looking for a home with kids 13 years and older. Creed may be placed with a tolerant dog due to his high energy and pushy behavior but no cats.
