Dog With A Permanent Pout Has Spent 400 Days At The Shelter Waiting For A Forever Home.

Siri is a 3-year-old shelter dog with a constant pout who has been waiting for a home for almost 400 days.

Siri’s scowl has appeared to deepen since her first day at SPCA of Wake County in December 2021, but her affection has only increased.

“She’s the loveliest thing,” says Samantha Ranlet, marketing communications specialist at the SPCA of Wake County.

Siri was surrendered by her owners and sent to the SPCA from a partner facility in North Carolina.

“She was surrendered after spending her entire life outside,” Ranlet explained. “She had a dog companion who lived outside with her, but they started fighting over food at some point.”

Siri’s family brought her to the little shelter in the hopes of rehoming her when the two canines could no longer live together. Staff at the shelter fell in love with her right away, but they didn’t have the space or finances to keep her for long.

The SPCA of Wake County stepped in at that point.

“We withdraw pets from our partner shelters so they have more time to find a home,” Ranlet explained. “In Siri’s case, this proved to be quite crucial. She did require the extra time.”

Siri’s new carers set right to work attempting to find her a new home as soon as she arrived at the SPCA, but it proved more difficult than imagined.

“Over the course of 13 months, she had 11 individuals express interest in adopting her, but all of them fell through,” Ranlet said.

Siri is still looking for her permanent family, but Ranlet believes her distrust of others is getting in the way.

“It appears that, despite the fact that she used to have dog buddies, her terrible experience tainted her sentiments against other dogs,” Ranlet explained. “We’ve attempted to introduce her to several, but she typically starts barking and snarling. She doesn’t want to be friends with you anymore.”

As a result, Siri’s friends at the SPCA of Wake County are seeking for a home that can meet her demands.

“We’re looking for a home for her that can accept a dog who doesn’t like being around other dogs,” Ranlet explained. “One that does not live with another dog.”

Siri likes spending time at the SPCA with her pals as she waits for her forever family. And they, in turn, like getting to know her more.

“She’s extremely laid-back and not really enthusiastic,” Ranlet remarked. “She’s simply a sweet little girl who enjoys cuddling, chewing on her toys, and snacking. She finds happiness in the little things in life.”

And her lovely expression tugs at the hearts of caretakers more and more each day.

“Her frown possesses superpowers,” Ranlet stated. “It’s difficult not to give her whatever she wants when I look at her huge, pouty eyes and frown.”

Siri was put in a foster home away from the shelter at one time during her 13-month stay. Her placement was temporary, but the sweet pooch quickly warmed up to her foster father.

“We got to see her safe and secure side,” Ranlet added. “The aspect of her that emerges when she is in a secure and comfortable environment.”

Although their time together was brief, Siri’s quick bond with her foster father demonstrated to her SPCA friends that she has a lot of love to give — and she’s eager to share it with someone special.

Ranlet and her coworkers at the shelter hope that Siri will find a great permanent home soon, but in the meanwhile, they’ll continue to lavish her with loves and cuddles.

“She has control over all of us,” Ranlet stated. “She is really special to us.”
