‘Unadoptable’ Shelter Dog Is Left Alone For 2 Years, Then Trainer Rescues Her

There are so many dogs in need of a good home. Sadly, years in a shelter and a traumatic history with previous owners (or with other dogs) can make it difficult to find an appropriate forever family for each and every pup.

Many dogs end up living in a shelter for years — or, even worse, being put down when no one is willing to adopt them. That’s where Jennifer Gray enters the picture.

Jennifer is a dog trainer in Agua Dulce, California. But she isn’t just any ordinary dog trainer. Jennifer specializes in taking in dogs that are considered “broken” or “unadoptable.” The California trainer rescues these dogs from shelters and brings them to Sunny Day Acres. She started the facility six years ago with the aim to train and rehabilitate the dogs who have had trouble finding a permanent place to call their own.

Jennifer trains bad behaviors out of dogs. So far, she has helped to save roughly 1,000 dogs.

One of those dogs, Ivy, had been in boarding for two years after her previous rescue gave up on her. Jennifer trained Ivy for three months. In early August 2017, Ivy finally got her happy ending — she was adopted by her new owner, Mary.

“You see these dogs that the world has given up on. And there are people like Jennifer Gray out there who refuse to give up on them,” Kelly Lambertson told CBS2.

Isn’t it amazing how Jennifer gives these pups a second chance at life?
