“Nobody needs them”: the boy takes only old dogs from the shelter, which nobody wants to take into the family

8-year-old Robbie’s life before he met his foster parents was filled with sadness and humiliation. He has been beaten and psychologically abused since birth. Three years ago, Maria and Charles Gay adopted Robbie and took him out of care.



The couple always had animals in their home, and recently they started taking older dogs from the shelter, which are rarely of interest to people that need a pet. It was this incontrovertible fact that brought the family closer together. It can be seen that the boy is very moved by the kindness and sincere care of his parents now. The child explained that he understands how lucky he's to satisfy Mary and Charles, because most of the people want to adopt Infants and adult children have little chance to find loving parents.



When Robbie became a full member of the family, they brought in an woman dog, Buffy. AtAt some point, she was taken to the clinic to clean the tartar and had a damaged tooth far away from her. But the veterinarian said that the anesthesia would kill the animal, and from the analyses it became clear that the old bitch had irreversible changes in her kidneys. According to the doctor, things will only worsen within the future and it'll be most merciful to assist the bitch to not suffer.



The upset spouse decides not to hide from their son that they may soon lose Buffy. Mary immediately visited the school for the boy. She was touched by how seriously he reacted to the bitter news. Robbie tells his mother that he hopes his Buffy can go to Dog Rainbow without pain or suffering. He knows it's sad for those that want to remain alive and hug their pet in their final moments.


The parents complied with his request, all of them accompanied the animal on his last journey. TheThe lady shared photos of her son touching Buffy online and told her story. She wrote that despite the difficult experience, her son may be a miracle. He has a broad heart and knows how to become compassionate.




Once the boy said to Mary, regardless of how long we love something, the place of affection doesn't depend on it. When the lady asked him to clarify his thoughts, Robbie replied that they only need to know each other for a few years, but he felt her love as if he was her biological son, not an adopted one.


This story circulated in the media early last year. Robbie continues to support adult animals, he's a volunteer with a community organization and his example has inspired many. Somehow, the family admitted that 25 older animals were taken from the shelter during the day.




The young activist hopes that people will be more friendly not only to adult pets, but also to children and the elderly. The boy is certain that when he grows up and becomes independent, he will certainly add adult children to the family. Within the mean time, he and his family have taken in six adult dogs.
