Hurricane Michael dogs seek home after 100+ days in shelter


    "Tom" and "Brady" seek forever home after more than 100 days in the Walton County Animal Shelter, after being brought there from Bay County after Hurricane Michael.

    Pensacola, Fla. (WEAR) – Two four-legged Hurricane Michael victims are looking for a forever home.

    “Tom” and “Brady” were brought to the Walton County Animal Shelter from Bay County on October 13th, and have been living there ever since.

    The shelter was able to contact the owners after learning the dogs have microchips. Unfortunately, in the aftermath of the storm, they’re no longer able to care for them.

    “I'm happy that we were able to help them, and get them here at the shelter. I'm very sad that these two, Tom and Brady, have been here for 118 days in our kennels with no family. As you can see in the play yard, they're loving dogs. They deserve a family. They deserve a home," says Tina Barker, The Walton County Animal Services Manager.

    The shelter says the dogs are American Bulldog mixes, a breed that for some people comes with negative connotations.

    Barker says these dogs don’t live up to the dangerous reputation.

    “Unfortunately, I know a lot of people give them a label. We haven't had any issues with them here at the shelter. They're very loving. They love to play. They love belly rubs. We just really want them to get a good home."
