There are days when I am utterly disappointed in humanity and disgusted by what we do. But then there are days, like today when I am genuinely proud to call myself a human. That’s is due to those few, amazing and kind-hearted people that exist on this planet.
And Steve Greig is one of them. He was just another passionate animal lover who had a dog for a best friend. But, one day, something horrible happened. His beloved friend, his dog, passed away.
However, even though it took him months to overcome the pain, he didn’t allow this event to crush him. He decided to get up and do the noblest thing a man can do!
Instead of mourning his loss for months, he decided not to wait long before he gives another dog a chance at a happy life. However, his idea was not adopting one dog.
No, no. What Steve had in mind was amazing and truly heartwarming. He went to the local shelter in Denver, Colorado and decided to adopt all of those, old, unwanted, or in a nutshell “least adoptable “dogs. And so, he did.
Today, Greig is a very busy dad who takes care of 10 elder dogs. His usual routine is waking up at 5 am and making breakfast for his cute family. After he feeds each and every one of the 10 hungry mouths, he then spends his day cuddling, takes them out for walking in the park and goes to his scheduled vet appointments.
His love for these amazing creatures inspired him to save all of those dogs who were often overlooked because of their age or their appearance. That is what also motivated him to make an Instagram account and share his amazing journey with the world. Right now, his Instagram profile has 806K followers.
And how could it not when it is constantly overloaded with cuteness and fluffiness?
“You kind of know what you want out of life once you become a certain age. These dogs know who they are and it’s easy to develop a relationship with a person or pet who knows who they are. It’s just fulfilling knowing that these guys are happy and loved and well taken care of. It makes my days worthwhile,” Greig explained.
But, that’s not all. Steve also has a pig named Bikini, pigeons, ducks, cats and a few chickens. Even though he is full at the moment, Steve doesn’t plan to stop adopting more senior dogs in the future.
“I decided that the only way I would feel better was if something good happened that probably wouldn’t have happened if he had not died”
“So [I adopted] a 12-year-old Chihuahua with a heart murmur and four bad knees”
“…And that was just the beginning of all the animals”
That is how he became the father of 10 dogs.
Now, his life is focused on taking care of these 10 little rascals, feeding them according to their special diets, administering medications to the ones who need it, grooming them, petting them and loving them unconditionally.
He even comes back home for lunch breaks to let them out and give them snacks.
“I grew up with a lot of pets”
“Both my parents were animal lovers”
