If you have been following our coverage about our new best friend George, we have some fantastic news to share. A few weeks ago we met this little pit bull terrier/retriever mix through a local rescue, Saving Great Animals. While most dogs are adopted out after about a month, George had been with SGA for over 730 days.
It just seemed like really bad luck for George - he was a good loving dog, cute as a button - but no one was interested.
We have to admit, we were blown out of the water by the response we got to our initial story on George. Hundreds of people shared the post, tagged friends who might be interested, and even applied through SGA to be a foster parent. After a couple weeks of coming through the apps, Saving Great Animal thinks they have found the perfect forever home for George.
After two years of living at Best Friends in Edmonds, George was finally adopted last Friday (December 2) by Carl and Stephanie Schuur from Asotin, WA.
[...] he has had a whirlwind 24 hours, but is already adjusting to his new home. He's fascinated by the horses across the road at the Arabian ranch. Steph and I took him in the truck to Clarkston this afternoon and walked him at Swallow's Park. We stopped at the Asotin boat launch on the way home where he got his feet wet in the Snake [River] for the first time. Currently, he's 'tuckered out' and sleeping in his bed in the (heated) garage.
Obviously, at Seattle Refined we are a tad bit dog-obsessed (although we prefer to call it passionate), so hearing the news about George's adoption really made our day. We hope it made yours as well. George's story touched many hearts around the area, and the support and response we received on social media was truly moving.
We remained in contact with SGA representatives Jacintha Sayed and Perrin Kaplan throughout the adoption process and they also received tremendous support, inquiries for adoption, and love.
So thank you to all who reached out or shared George's story. You're the ones who helped make this happen! We can't wait to see how George continues to adjust and grow into his new family.
