Dog Rescued From Boat Storage Finally Goes Home After 2+ Years In The Shelter

Back in 2016, life was looking bleak for Guinness.

Someone tied him up at a boat storage facility without access to food or water and left him there. No one is sure how long the poor dog was tied up and alone, but help arrived before things could get worse.

Guinness ended up at animal control in Crescent City, California, where volunteers with Dogs of Del Norte worked to help Guinness find a forever family.
