Steve Greig is an accountant who lives in Colorado with 10 dogs, most of whom are elderly. He also has 2 cats, as well as a number of farm animals, including a cute little pig named Bikini, 2 ducks, 2 pigeons, 2 chickens, and 1 rabbit.
There is no doubt that this man loves these creatures very much. Since senior dogs have a harder time finding a permanent home because of their advanced age, this is what he has committed himself to most.
“I grew up around several animals. Almost usually, my animal-loving parents let me have everything I wanted as long as I could care for it.”
When Steve moved into his own home, he had always had three or four dogs around, and after one of them died, his desire to help animals increased noticeably.
“I was really concerned about that passing. I continued to feel awful about it even after a month or two had passed. I came to the conclusion that the only way to feel better would be for something positive to occur that probably wouldn’t have if he hadn’t passed away.
This man was determined to give another dog a decent life after losing his closest companion, so he went to a nearby shelter and adopted the puppy that had the lowest chance of finding a home.
“So I took home a 12-year-old Chihuahua named Eeyore, who had a heart murmur and some of his legs were in poor condition, and that was only the beginning of all creatures,” the author said.
Only eight of the ten canines Greig is now taking care of are his; the other two come from his sister and a roommate.
You know, there are 10 dogs and most of them have different diets, so on a typical day I wake up at 5 a.m. and make breakfast for everyone.
