Wholesome Grandma Spends Hours Knitting Blankets and Sweaters For Shelter Dogs

by Rob Williams

Puppies and dogs stuck in shelters are always doing it tough and that's not helped by the winter cold. That's where 89 year-old Maisie Green stepped up and decided she needed to help. She began to knit jumpers for the cold pooches. Maisie has knitted over 450 different blankets and sweaters, and she shows no signs of slowing down. 

The pooches are often snapped wearing their home styled sweater, and this has helped them find their new forever homes. This winter keep an eye out for any doggo in style, if it’s knitted with a distinct homemade quality it could be one of Maisie’s exclusives.
