Dog Has Been Waiting For A Home For Two Years And No One Knows Why

She's the sweetest girl who loves going hiking and kayaking ❤️

After Cesara ended up at a big public shelter in South Carolina, she was quickly put on the euthanasia list because she was heartworm positive. Dog Star Rescue, based in Connecticut, specializes in pulling heartworm positive dogs from South Carolina, getting them better and then giving them a second chance, and that’s exactly what they decided to do for sweet Cesara. She was soon transported to the Northeast, where the rescue set about trying to find the perfect home for her. 

That was nearly two years ago, and unfortunately, poor Cesara is still waiting for her forever family. 

For two years now, Dog Star Rescue has been working tirelessly to try and find Cesara a home, but for some reason, staffers just haven’t had any luck. Everyone who knows Cesara absolutely adores her, and her struggle to find a family is so baffling to them all. 

“She’s been featured on our website, Instagram and Facebook, she’s attended almost every adoption event that’s been held, and she’s had advocates in each and every volunteer that has come to personally know her — yet it’s like she’s completely invisible to the outside world,” Megan Casagrande of Dog Star Rescue told The Dodo. 

Cesara absolutely loves meeting new people, and is always bubbly and happy to see anyone who crosses her path. She’s not at all shy or nervous, and is always up for any adventure — car rides, hikes, kayaking, jogging — you name it, Cesara wants to do it with you.

Cesara is not great with other animals and would need to be the only pet in her future home, which staff at the rescue think is part of the reason she hasn’t been adopted yet. She’s also a rather large dog at 60 pounds, and is an American Staffordshire terrier, boxer and bulldog mix, which are breeds that some people can have issues with. Staff at the rescue wish people would just look past all that, though, and see what a truly wonderful addition to any family Cesara would make. 

Cesara has been searching for a home for two years now, and her rescuers don’t want her to have to wait even a day longer. She has so much love to give, and just needs a family she can give it all to. 

“Cesara has been in our rescue by far the longest and she has become quite the legend,” Dan McCabe, president of Dog Star Rescue, told The Dodo. “There will not be a dry eye in the Dog Star volunteer base when she finds her lifelong human partner(s).”
