About Wolfgang

Accountant by trade, animal hero by calling, Steve Greig is proving that love only gets better with age. To help overcome the loss of his dog Wolfgang, he set out to make something good to come out of the tragedy and adopted "the oldest, least-adoptable dog" he could find. Flash forward to 2019 and Steve’s endeavor has fostered a full feathered menagerie of senior pets, housing nine dogs, four chickens, two ducks, one rabbit, Tofu the turkey and Bikini the pig. Sharing his "puppy bowl retirement home" via Instagram, Steve’s senior buddies have captivated the hearts of 910K+ followers and inspired debut book The One and Only Wolfgang, released in September 2019.
