In an interview with The Dodo, Lyndsey explained that A Way for a Stray (AWFAS) sees many senior dogs in similar scenarios of abandonment. Currently, there are 17 dogs at Miami-Dade Animal Services who are more than 10 years old.
Lyndsey also explained that the reason why Dessie isn't already adopted is because AWFAS has a thorough application process. While many supporters have offered to adopt Dessie, other dogs are also waiting for homes. People who live in the Miami area and are interested in adopting a rescue dog can visit the AWFAS website to learn more.
Lyndsey said that AWFAS may have already found a new home for Dessie, but the group needs to visit the potential homes in order to see if they're a good match.
