Months kept passing after Steve Greig’s beloved dog died, but he still felt crushed. That’s when he decided he should give another dog a good life.

But not just any dog. He went to his local shelter in Denver, Colorado to adopt the “least adoptable” senior dog, as these are the ones too often overlooked. Now, Greig is a super busy human dad to his 10 elder shelter dogs and his Instagram is overloaded with cuteness approved by 478k followers.

Each day Greig wakes up at 5.a.m in the morning to make breakfast for his big family. Most of the dogs have different diets. His schedule is filled with walks in the park, vet appointments…and lots of love and cuddles. “Whenever I sit or lie down at a dog-friendly level, there are always at least three or four of [dogs] attached,” Greig writes on Instagram.

“They’re just wiser animals,” Greig told. “You kind of know what you want out of life once you become a certain age. These dogs know who they are and it’s easy to develop a relationship with a person or pet who knows who they are. It’s just fulfilling knowing that these guys are happy and loved and well-taken care of. It makes my days worthwhile.”

Greig also has a pig named Bikini, as well as two ducks, pigeons, cats and a few chickens. He has no more room for pets at the moment but he intends to adopt more senior dogs in the future. Because after all, love sees no age.

    Beautiful story. The older animals are usually overlooked, but are well trained, really wanting a home again, calm and sweet. We had three senior cats that we rescued and they gave us joy everlasting. We now have a sweet dog who we found at a local shelter. Pure love. I love the senior animals!

  24. I love the senior dogs. I just recently lost my two 14 yr olds - Layla a maltese and Fancy a rat terrier. Both were dumped at the ages of 11 and 12. I recently pulled an 11 yr old weenie dog and fostered her until she found her forever mama. My sister and I just started our own group and working to get our 501 to be able to pull from the shelters and save more of the seniors. They are my favorites!! Thank you for what you do!

  25. Where can one donate to help?

    You are so wonderful and full of love to do this for theses fur babies. I do the same for all ages. Your bed looks like mine. I have 5 right now. And the oldest is 10 and the youngest is 1 years old. Keep it up they need us like we need them... Love is all the need.

  32. What's Steve's instagram handle?

    I love this! The man clearly has a lot of money, but he spends it well on these dogs. A man who has no problem filling his vintage Rolls-Royce with animals is a man I have a lot of respect for. Placing these dogs in a loving home with other dogs gives these dogs the best life possible and will prolong their lives. Dogs always live longer when they live with other dogs.

  37. You are awesome!! These pictures are hilarious! I have three rescues - all purebreds. One is a senior special needs that I adopted from the Dumb Friends League when she was 10. I had to sign 5 medical releases to adopt her! We live in the Denver area as well and would love to meet you and your crew. Let me know if that's possible. Love from Camille, Winky, the One Eyed Wonder, Jack, and Chloe You can find Winky on FB and Instagram
