The forgotten one: Longest pup in shelter sleeps to take away the loneliness

 Meet Pepsi – he’s a five-year-old mixed breed who spends most of his time lying in his kennel because nobody involves meet and greet him anymore. The Babylon Animal Shelter is hoping social media fans can help Pepsi find a loving home.

In February 2019, Pepsi was found roaming the streets, and he kept running because he was so scared. Finally he was trapped near the Pepsi Company factory – thus his adorable name.

No one can figure why he doesn’t have already got a home. A volunteer writes:

“This stunning 5-6 year young boy, knows his basic commands and loves long walks. He has been described as a really ‘chill’ dog who likes to play with goys, but also likes to just lay and cuddle his people. he's the entire package just waiting to become someone’s ally .”


Pepsi is sort of shy when he meets new people, but he warms up very quickly. His one issue is that he doesn't like other dogs, and although the shelter states he walks alright on a leash, he are often reactive to other dogs passing by. he's also described as a “bit of an escape artist” so his home and yard should be secured. it's preferred that no children under the age of 14 be within the home.

Help Pepsi find an experienced family who will spend many time, patience and love with him. Help find Pepsi a family who will allow this special boy to decompress, introduce new people slowly and provides him many exercise and adventures. Share his plight with friends, family and social media contacts.

Surely someone will fall crazy with this special boy. Nearly two years within the shelter – he deserves a true home albeit his friends at the shelter do their best to comfort and love him.
