Breitbart: An eight-year-old boy who has been adopted out of the foster care system has made it his mission in life to save old dogs who need a home.
“There’s something about old dogs that I just like,” Robbie Gay told CBS News.
It is mostly because he sees much of himself in them, because he was so badly abused as a child he had to be hospitalized twice for brain injuries.
Two years ago, Maria and Charles Gay made the decision to adopt him.
“He knows what it feels like not to be loved and cared for. He’s the most hopeful, optimistic, and genuinely caring kid who has absolutely no reason to be that way,” said Robbie’s adoptive mother, Maria.
Maria said her adopted son had come a long way, except for the fact that he could not cry. Despite all that he had been through, or maybe because of all that he had suffered, he had not shed a tear — until earlier in the month when one of Robbie’s older dogs, Buffy, had to be euthanized. MORE
