Senior Dog In Shelter Puts Paw On Woman And Let’s Her Know It’s Time

It’s heartbreaking to see senior dogs left alone in city shelters.People would frequently choose the younger pets and confine the old and sick ones.Thankfully, there are still people who choose to adopt those pets, fully aware that these animals deserve to live happy lives.

This old dog in a Los Angeles shelter will break your heart.

For several years, this poor and sick senior dog had been living in a shelter in Los Angeles.Nobody cared about him because he was just skin and bones, with bald patches of fur on his back and other parts of his body.

Everyone assumed he’d spend the rest of his life alone in his shelter cage.No one knew how his life would change after that fateful day.When this lady saw the senior dog, she was instantly smitten.

Emma, a Northwest Dog Project rescuer, came into the shelter one day.It was an overcrowded shelter, but one senior dog caught her eye among the chaos.She claimed that her heart stopped when she saw the pooch, but it was also at that moment that she realized she had to save that pooch from that hell.

“He was a complete shambles,” Emma explained to the Dodo.
“But it was his eyes.”Emma completed the adoption application and took the dog home with her.

The ride home with the dog went better than she had hoped.The senior dog was as sweet as they come.He would respond to Emma’s attention by wagging his furless tail, and he enjoyed being patted on the head.Emma’s first goal when they arrived home was to get the old dog back in shape, but the only thing holding her back was his loss of appetite.Emma, however, continued on her mission and fed the dog with a syringe.It was extremely beneficial as the dog gradually regained muscle strength.

While caring for the dog, Emma encountered a larger issue.

When the dog became bloated, they had to rush him to the hospital.The doctor broke the heartbreaking news that the dog was in end-stage heart failure and advised them to prepare their farewells ahead of time.

The pooch’s chances of survival were slim, but Emma returned the next morning with the lively pooch greeting her.She burst into tears as the dog kissed her on the cheek.

It was truly miraculous that the dog survived.

Love restored the sparkle in his eyes and regrew his fluffy fur.The dog’s fur began to grow back weeks after the operation.He was also in better shape because he could go for long walks outside with Emma.He was supposed to live for less than three weeks, but he outlived everyone’s expectations.The pup is doing well and enjoying life with Emma seven months later.

Emma’s adoration for the senior dog is likely to have helped him defy the odds and live long enough to enjoy a happy life in a wonderful home.Thank you to Emma and the Northwest Dog Project for restoring this adorable pup’s lost hope.
