Last Thursday, the 620 Fi 1stBus in West Yorkshire picked up a lonely passenger. In Bierely, an abandoned Staffie-mix boarded the bus and sat alone, hurting everyone’s hearts.
She sat calmly in her seat, her eyes mournful, sniffing the air, as if yearning for someone who wasn’t there.
Her fellow passengers took care of the lonely little vagrant until the bus arrived at its final stop and the attendants could take her off.
She was then transported to Cliffe Kennels, where she was given the name Olive and cared for until her owner arrived.
But Olive’s fortunes were about to change. Gemma Burton, who had rode the bus with Olive, had taken a photo of the sad-looking dog and uploaded it on social media in the goal of reuniting Olive with her owner.
Gemma’s message rapidly went viral, with hundreds of shares on Facebook and the story picked up by several news outlets. People from all across the world were sending their love and wishing for a good ending for Olive.
That joyful ending appears to have arrived. While Olive’s original owner has yet to come forward, numerous people have indicated their want to offer not just their hearts, but also their homes to Olive.
Denise Ball, the owner of Cliff Kennels, said Olive will be transferred to her new home shortly.
Olive’s happy ending might mean a fresh start for numerous more lonely puppies. While Olive can only be adopted by one family, there are many more dogs that are seeking for a forever home. Denise hopes that those who were unable to adopt Olive may consider visiting one of Yorkshire’s rescue centers and adopting another dog.
Olive’s lonely days are nearly over, and we are confident she will be content in her new permanent home.
