This Man Rescues Forgotten Animals and Gives Them a Loving Home
A man named Steve, or @wolfgang2242 on Instagram, is currently living out a life goal of mine.
Steve rescues animals.
Steve is a big advocate for adoption (if you couldn’t tell). His ‘pack’ is made up of dogs with various special needs and conditions.
These are Steve’s dogs.
This is Edna, Josh, Eeyore, Loretta, Englebert, Phyllis, Hercules, Maddie and Enoch. As you can see, these dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and breeds.
Steve also has other animals.
This is Bikini the pig and Stuart the bunny. They seem to get along very well, but Bikini is a bit of a bed hog. Get it? Bed HOG?
Steve has a few chickens and other birds, too.
Steve’s rescued animals make for some pretty incredible family photos.
Steve is living my dream of rescuing animals and giving them a loving home.
When I picked up Enoch from daycare there was an older, otherwise nondescript man in front of me picking up a slightly overweight but otherwise nondescript mixed breed dog that ran out to greet him. This was not a dog that would normally stick out in any way, there are thousands just like it in shelters all across the country. I probably wouldn't have paid much attention either but there was an unavoidable bond that this dog and his owner shared. The dog looked at no one else. The man pulled some treats out from his pocket, made the dog sit and then covertly looked around the room beaming with pride to see how many people were appreciating how smart his dog was. A simple trick, an ordinary dog and his seemingly ordinary human, but there was just something so pure about this man that obviously loved his dog, really, really loved his dog. He talked to the dog all the way through the parking lot, buckled him up in the backseat and gave him a hug before he got in the driver's seat and they drove away. I said a little prayer that they will have a good long life together. So many dogs want what this ordinary dog has. #reallyreallyloveyourdog
Each animal has their own personality.
This is Englebert. His back legs don’t work and his skin is sometimes scratchy and crusty, but his heart is as big as his personality.
Thank you, Steve! You’re my hero.
