Man adopts 18-year-old Pit Bull: ‘I couldn’t let her spend 1 more night in the shelter’

At the age of 18, at the end of February, Julep the Pit Bull found herself in an animal shelter instead of at home.

Julep’s person — who’d loved her very much, for a very long time — had just died. Family was unable to take care of the white-faced dog.

Julep was one of the oldest, “if not the oldest,” dog who’d ever come through, Alix John Tolley, spokesperson for Washington, D.C.’s Humane Rescue Alliance, said in an email. “She’s lived a long and happy life.”

The shelter put out word about Julep on Facebook. They said Julep was looking for “a fresh start,” and “doesn’t need much, just a couch to sleep on and a human to love.”

Enter amazing human Wayne Lerch, who recently lost his 11-year-old pit bull and saw the post online. Lerch went and soon adopted 18-year-old Pit Bull Julep.
