Sandi, a 12-year-old pit bull-boxer mix, spent half of her life at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society in Indiana

MARION, Ind — Some dogs only spend hours in a shelter, while others wait days, months and in this case – 6 years.

Sandi, a 12-year-old pit bull-boxer mix, spent half of her life at the Marion-Grant County Humane Society in Indiana. She was finally adopted on Jan. 3 by the Rhodes family.

The shelter posted a video of Sandi taking her ‘freedom walk’ on the day she was adopted. She spent 2,461 days in the shelter.

A spokesperson for the Marion-Grant County Humane Society said it was a bittersweet day when Sandi was adopted and that she was so deserving of her new home!
