Some people only adore dogs when they are young and playful. They just see how cute they are and they fall in love with them.
But when they get in their advanced age and they have special needs, these owners don’t even want to provide those needs. Just like this one owner who dumped his dog in a local shelter and asked them to put him down.
The owner claims that his dog was very old, around 20 years old. Aside from that, he also said that he was vomiting and had diarrhea. The owner then left, leaving the shelter staff dumbfounded. Although the dog was indeed in his old age, he didn’t really look sickly.
The shelter didn’t really have any choice. They had to take the dog, and if no one adopts him, they may very well have to put him down.
And with his owner gone, the dog just sat there quietly. Confused at what was happening.
The senior dog’s life was now in peril. Although he was adorable, his chances of getting adopted were very slim.
But the shelter staff still exerted all efforts to get him rescued. They posted photos of the poor pooch on their social media accounts and asked people to help him out.
Thankfully, a non-profit rescue organization based in Texas, the Animal Justice League, saw the post and came to the rescue. They picked up the dog, whose name was Radar, and took him to one of their volunteer foster. They also took him to a vet to see what was wrong with him.
The vet figured out that the dog is indeed a senior, but he was nowhere close to 20 years old. There was also really nothing wrong with him. He just had some tight muscles due to old age. They gave him some vitamins and medicine for his various age-related health conditions.
With love and patience, Radar started to feel better. His character changed as well. He became more playful as each day passed. He was just like a little puppy.
When the time comes, he will be given up for adoption. Hopefully, he will find a family that would not give up on him.
