Happy Wet Nose Wednesday! Another week, another animal to brag about.

Hundreds of animals on the SouthCoast are waiting for a place to call home, and thanks to local shelters in the area, these animals are getting a second chance at happiness.

Animals shouldn't have to grow old in a shelter, so each week we spotlight one lucky animal on the SouthCoast in hopes of finding them a forever family.

No animal deserves a loving home more than this dog.

Meet Lucky, an 11-year-old pit bull mix at Taunton Animal Shelter in Taunton. Lucky has had a rough life.

"Lucky's life has not been easy, but he is ready to turn the page and start a new chapter with a family who will love him unconditionally," said Friends of Taunton Animal Care Facility, a fundraising campaign that helps the Taunton Animal Shelter with medical care beyond basic needs. "Despite his rough past, Lucky remains a sweet and gentle old man who enjoys the simple things in life, like car rides, walks and a soft bed to sleep on."

The past 11 years haven't been "lucky," but Lucky remains a loyal companion with a bunch of love left to give. He dreams of having a fenced-in yard to play in and spending time with his new family, surrounded by love for the rest of his life.

Pit bulls tend to have a bad reputation, but Lucky breaks the stereotype with his sweet demeanor, infectious personality and unwavering loyalty to the ones he loves.

All he needs is a chance at a forever family, and he will return the favor with unconditional love.

Does Lucky sound like a good fit for you and your family? Contact Taunton Animal Shelter online, email the Friends of Taunton Animal Care Facility at friendsoftauntonanimalshelter@gmail.com and be sure to like the shelter on Facebook.

Lucky cannot wait to meet you.
