They believe she will never find a place to call home, yet the greatest way to be loved is to smile.


Society is often very unfair to people, judging them only by their appearance. Sadly, for dogs , it’s usually not so different, and if possible, they’re victims of even greater cruelty.

Sometimes, certain races, because of their friendliness, gentle characteristics or size, end up stealing the hearts of people;  and for some strange reason, shelters are full of pups who are rejected again and again.

That’s what happened to All Dogs Matter in London when they were faced with the question of whether a Staffordshire dog named Lily will one day ever  find an owner. Especially since that breed used to be one of the most rejected breeds at the shelter.

Lily has been at the shelter for 2 days and has made everyone fall in love with her charming smile.

Then, to help her get her dream home, they decided to take a picture of her and upload it online, in the hope that someone would love her as much as they did in All Dogs Matter.

Undoubtedly, Lily was not just any Staffordshire, she collapsed all the stereotypes of her race from day 1, captivating the whole world with her expression on her face that only invited to love her.

And it was exactly what Frankie Murphy thought when he saw her post when he saw it on Twitter. In fact, the tweet went so viral, and the shelter received so many messages and adoption requests, that Frankie, even though he dreamed of her being his, was afraid he was late.

“We saw her lovely little smile and couldn’t resist, we contacted the charity hoping she was still available. When we went to visit her, we fell in love with her immediately. We were sitting there in the waiting room, and she walked in with her foster mom, and she was so excited to see us,” Frankie recounted.

When they told her she was the first to formalize the adoption, she couldn’t believe it.

But to make everything right, he decided to take her with him for a few days, to first introduce her to the family and make sure that it would be the best for the dog. And without a doubt, it was the best decision: after a few days they decided that they would keep it forever.

Frankie named the dog Sybil

“She’s so good, she follows my dad like a little shadow, and she doesn’t bark at all. My neighbors didn’t even know we had a new dog because she had been so quiet. She is also so smart that she has managed to open our back door. She’s not tall enough to reach the handle, but she can push it with her nose and open it ,” Frankie says.

Sybil’s smile and sweet personality were her best passport to a life full of love.

For her part, All Dogs Matter deputy director Laura Hedges was very surprised with how quickly Sybil found a forever home. But at the same time, she regretted that the other puppies did not suffer the same fate.

“Her case simply shows the power of a picture that speaks louder than a thousand words. We have a lot of dogs that are just as adorable as Sybil, so if you’re thinking of getting one, always think about saving one first as there are so many dogs around the country looking for new dogs. good house,” Laura said.

Please share this story to let everyone know that we are not the ones to judge a dog’s appearance, and that adoption not only changes an animal’s life, but most of all, it changes the life of a dog. best friends forever. All furry people deserve a chance to be loved.
