MERRIAM, Kan. — A shelter dog that has been in a kennel more than 400 days got a unique roommate.
Queen is affectionate and a great roommate.
"She does not snore, but I can hear other dogs in the building snoring," Poore told KMBC.
"She keeps getting looked over and that's the thing that's driving me crazy," he told KCTV. "She's looking for a human best friend and that's all she wants."
Poore also hopes his efforts raise awareness about other animals kept long-term at shelters, whose mental and emotional health can deteriorate over time.
"Queen is really speaking for all long-term shelter dogs and shelter cats, they're kind of the forgotten ones," Poore told KMBC. "She's just been slowly declining in the shelter environment. Because I see her every day, I've noticed those changes."
