Every shelter employee will confirm that potential guardians who arrive at the shelter most often decide to adopt young animals. Elderly and sick people spend the most time waiting for new housing because caring for them can be more demanding. Unfortunately, it happens that owners, whatever the circumstances, abandon their animals, even those that are old and require care. That’s what happened this time too.
A 20-year-old dog was taken to a shelter
Social networks have become a means of communication that provides information about animals housed in shelters and thus allows information about them to reach a wider group of recipients. This makes them more likely to find a new, loving home.
It was exactly the same with a 20 year old dog named Dax. The animal was taken to a shelter, where specialists immediately took care of it. Some of them really found it hard to believe that the man he had spent so many years with could get rid of him without any qualms.
The senior dog was very confused
Everything indicates that it was just as difficult to believe the dog himself. He was visibly worried about his new surroundings and didn’t understand why the people he had spent 20 years with didn’t want him around anymore. Just look at a dog’s eyes, no one should have a problem seeing sadness and suffering there.
Shelter employees had the idea of telling Dax’s story on their social networks. These moving words were accompanied by even more heartwarming photos of the dog. They show that he is clearly lost and that this whole situation is causing him a lot of stress.
@bigdogranchrescuefl 💙PLEASE WATCH-LISTEN-READ-SHARE This is DAX 🐾 a 20 year old Weimaraner surrendered by his owner and is now foster care with Big Dog Ranch Rescue. It is unfathomable to think about a loving loyal 20 year old senior dog, at the end of his life span, given up and left confused and heartbroken. 💔 Please let Dax’s story be a reminder of the responsibilities of being a dog owner, physically and emotionally. They are not just dogs-they are our children and our family memebers who love us unconditionally and remain forever loyal, asking for little in return. 💙Miracle Fund Donate: Link in Bio ☝🏻 🐾 Adopt: www.BDRR.org/adopt 🏠 Foster: firstname.lastname@example.org 💚Donate: www.bdrr.org/donate 💲Venmo: @bigdogranchrescue 💰CashApp: @bigdogranchrescue 💵Zelle: email@example.com #bdrr #bigdogranchrescue #fyp #savedogs #trending #adoptme #dogrescue #viralvideo #adoptdontshop #shelterstories #seniordogrescue #Weimaraner #weimaranersoftiktok #weimaranerrescue #helpadoptme #miracledogs ♬ the winner takes it all – november ultra
A sick dog needs more than just treatment, there’s something more important
Dax’s advanced age obviously means the dog’s health is deteriorating. His shape is definitely not the best, but he is doing well enough to be able to move to a new home. Proper treatment is not all your pet needs. What will help him most right now is a loving caregiver who will ensure he has the best possible final years of his life.
The story of the pointer moved many Internet users who wondered how heartless one must be to treat an old dog like this. Fortunately, there were good-hearted people with whom the dog would spend the rest of his life.
