When Tully found himself in a Long Island animal shelter, he was only 8 months old. He’s 2.5 years old now, and still waiting for the right someone to take him home.
“Everyone who has met Tully falls in love with him,” says Elyse Giurco, co-founder ofRoad to Home Rescue Support. “We know he will be the happiest dog alive once he has a home and someone to love.”
When this handsome, gentle Pit Bull came into the shelter as a skinny stray in June 2014. Because he was there for so long, he began showing signs of deterioration. Here he proved himself to be easy-going, independent, and fun.
Plus photogenic — photographer Sophie Gamand took one of her famous Pit Bull flower crown photos of Tully:
Tully loves to splash in kiddie pools and roll around on the couch. He’s great with kids.
And “despite living life as a stray and a shelter dog, he has wonderful house manners. Loves to ride in the car and sits quietly in the back seat like a perfect gentleman,” says Elyse.
But Tully still hasn’t been adopted. There’s been a lot of inquiries. Tully has to be an only dog, though, which rules out a lot of the people who’d have otherwise wanted to take him home. While we’re being frank: Tully’s not great with cats, either.
Still, Elyse is feeling optimistic that someone will see the incredible dog she knows Tully to be, and give him his first — and hopefully last — real home. Complete with kiddie pools, and couches, and all the love this good dog deserves.
“Tully is meant to be with people. To give and receive love, to experience the simple comforts of home. A bed, a few toys, playtime and nap time in one place, forever.”
Tully has a Facebook page where you can see more photos and videos.
Tully can be adopted in New York or out of state!
