It all started when he adopted Eeyor, a 12 year old Chihuahua. Today, Steve Greig lives with 10 senior dogs! It's fair to say that this man from Denver, Colorado, is a true animal lover.

Steve grew up surrounded by dogs and his love for them continued into adulthood. But when one of Steve's four-legged friend passed away, he found it incredibly hard to get over his loss.It was then that he realised just how important animals were to him. Steve decided that he would only be happy again if he dedicated himself to improving the lives of dogs.Senior dogs are always the ones left behind in shelters, so the animal lover decided to only adopt the older ones. Steve Greig told The Dodo:

They're just wiser animals. You kind of know what you want out of life once you become a certain age. These dogs know who they are and it's easy to develop a relationship with a person or pet who knows who they are.

Whilst the American still works as an accountant, his priority is always his dogs so he organises his life around them.His day starts very early, at 5 a.m. on the dot. He then prepares personalised meals for each of his ten dogs.After a few hours of work at his desk, he bounds back home and takes his motley crew for a nice, long walk.

And it's not just dogs that he lives alongside, he also loves farm animals.There's his pig, aptly named Bikini, two chickens, two ducks, three pigeons, a donkey, a pony and two cats that he's rescued too!Clearly we aren't the only ones amazed by Steve's devotion to animals as his Instagram account has over half a million followers!
