9-Year-Old Shelter Dog in NYC Gets Special Day Out to Help Her Feel Her Best

We sure hope someone falls in love with her soon.

Spending life in a shelter isn't easy for any dog, but we'd imagine it could be even scarier as an older pup. That's why we love what the folks at the Animal Care Centers of New York City did for 9-year-old Gertrude. The elderly dog has been feeling down about not being adopted, but they reminded her just how loved she is. 

Gertrude's makeover was posted to the care centers' TikTok account, @nycacc, where viewers from across the globe have fallen in love with the pup. If we're being completely honest, we think we're falling for her, too!

Just look at this pretty girl! She seems ten times happier when she's out of the shelter and getting tons of attention, so we hope this video entices someone to offer her a forever home. We can tell that she'll be the most loving pup!

"Rescue seniors are the best!!!" wrote commenter @d_lano29. "I’m def biased toward bully babies too. She deserves the world!" We couldn't agree more if we tried! We can only imagine how many times Gertrude has been overlooked by potential adopters because of her breed or her age. We think it's time for that to change! Just like @glamaz0ne said, "she deserves to be the star of a household."

Luckily, it's looking like someone is interested in being her foster parent! @Justinenikee asked, "could she be fostered?" Another commenter even offered to cover the pup's transportation fees, so we're over the moon that the shelter replied to help set up an application. We're hoping everything works out for golden girl Gertrude!
