Whenever eight-year-old Robbie Gay visits their local Humane Society in Florida’s Palm Coast, the dogs that he can relate to the most are the ones that are usually overlooked by families looking to adopt. These dogs are the ones who have lived long, harsh lives and show it. This is because, as young as he is, this boy knows exactly how it feels to be in their place during those types of situations. This is because Robbie has been the one passed over for adoption because of his age or the things he has been through.
Robbie Gay was in the foster system with a history of abuse up until two years ago when Charles and Maria chose to become his parents. Ever since then, his beautifully optimistic and caring personality has only grown to include his compassion for those who haven’t met their family yet. After the loss of their family dog, Buffy, Robbie decided that he would do everything that he could to make sure any animal will not feel uncared for or unloved as he once did.
Wanting the unwanted
This decision was what led to Robbie’s new mission in life – to adopt as many old dogs as he can with the permission of his parents. Maria shares that this incredibly loving boy is aware of how his life may have ended up like the forgotten dogs in the shelter. Because of this, he is determined to pay the kindness his parents gave to him forward as much as he can.
True to his word, the boy has already started taking home the scraggliest, oldest, and most mangled dogs in the shelter. His last adopted dog was a lame Shih Tzu named Molly. This little snaggletoothed dog rounds of his pet count to six, and he doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Check out this video to know more about this amazing boy’s story:
