Woman rescues an ill elderly dog from the shelter, and it recovers to become a cute and charming canine.
Sad to see senior pets kept alone and chained up in city shelters. Pets who were older or sickly would frequently be passed over in favor of the younger animals. Thankfully, there are still people out there who decide to adopt these creatures, knowing full well that they deserve to live out their lives in a loving environment.
Your heart will break when you see this aged dog in a shelter in Los Angeles.
For many years, this old and sick dog had been staying in a shelter in Los Angeles. Because he was only skin and bones and had bald patches on his back and other portions of his body, no one was interested in him.
Everyone believed that he would spend the rest of his life alone in the shelter’s cage. Nobody anticipated how his life would change after one terrible day, though.
When this woman first saw the senior dog, she was enthralled.
Emma, a rescuer from the Northwest Dog Project, entered the shelter one day. Although the shelter was overflowing, she noticed one senior dog among the chaos. She claimed that when she first saw the dog, her heart stopped, but it was also at that moment that she realized she had to save the dog from its torment.
“He was a complete mess,” Emma told the Dodo. “But there was just something about his eyes.”
It went more smoothly than she anticipated transporting the puppy home.
The elderly dog was adorable in every way. He enjoyed being petted on the head and would wave his hairless tail at Emma in response to her attention. When they got home, Emma’s main priority was to get the old dog in shape, but his lack of appetite was the only thing stopping her. Emma continued with her goal anyhow and used a syringe to feed the dog.
It was quite beneficial as the dog gradually regained his physical power.
Emma was taking care of the dog when she ran into a bigger issue.
The dog suddenly grew bloated, necessitating a medical run. The doctor broke the devastating news that the dog had end-stage heart failure and instructed them to prepare their farewells in advance.
The dog’s odds of surviving the procedure were quite limited, so it was surprising when Emma returned the following morning and was greeted by the cheerful dog. The moment the dog placed his paw on her legs and kissed her, she sobbed in happiness.
The fact that the dog was still alive was quite astounding.
Love restored the glimmer to his eyes and made his fluffy fur grow again.
After several weeks, the dog’s fur began to regrow. He had also gotten back in shape because he could stroll outside for hours with Emma. He outlasted predictions that he would live for less than three weeks. The dog is doing well and enjoying life with Emma seven months later.
The elderly dog undoubtedly beat the odds and survived long enough to have a good life in a wonderful environment thanks to Emma’s unrelenting affection for him. We are grateful to Emma and the Northwest Dog Project for restoring this gorgeous dog’s lost hope.
