More than 10 years ago, Steve Greig, an accountant in Denver, CO, lost his beloved dog, Wolfgang. The two were inseparable for about 12 years and losing Wolfgang changed Steve.
After grieving for months, Steve wanted to make a difference in someone else’s life. That’s why he decided to adopt the “least adoptable” senior dog. Giving a dog the chance to spend the last years of his/her life happily seemed rewarding to Steve.
He visited a local shelter and adopted a 12-year-old chihuahua with a heart murmur and four bad knees. Being an animal lover, Steve soon adopted 8 other senior dogs. In addition, Steve has a pig, 2 rabbits, 2 ducks, 4 chickens, 2 cats, and a 50-pound turkey.
He didn’t stop adopting even during the pandemic. Steve even wrote “The One and Only Wolfgang” – a book about his experience.
