An adorable Chihuahua dog, considered the oldest in a shelter, is happy to celebrate his birthday.
Considered the oldest in the shelter, the little chihuahua named Bully may not be able to recount all the events he has been through since his birth in 1999, but he will certainly not forget his 23rd birthday. anniversary.
Bully spent the last 21 years of his life with a loving family. Every day he enjoyed the company of his loved ones, played outside with other dogs and took many walks in the local park.
But unfortunately, when his elderly owner couldn’t care for him, he decided to entrust him to The Mr. Mo Project, a rescue center dedicated to caring for older dogs.
The shelter’s oldest dog turns 23
The rescue center, run by Chris Hughes and his wife, is responsible for caring for elderly and sick elderly dogs.
They take care of these animals and encourage people to adopt or foster dogs, so that they can spend their last years surrounded by lots of love.
Bully’s former owner described him as “a big dog in a little dog’s body”. Soon after, Chris discovered that despite Bully’s advanced age, not much had changed and he was still very energetic.
Chris told The Dodo:
Bully is feisty, playful, gentle, independent, gentle, calm and has the bark of an old man. Even at his age he enjoys trying to push another one of our Chihuahuas.
Now that Bully is older, he needs to rest more than a young dog, so he loves to sleep and still deserves that right.
He falls asleep anywhere, sometimes in the middle of the kitchen floor, on a chamber pot, or on the biggest, comfiest bed around.
Bully has always been extra special, so Chris and his wife decided to celebrate his 23rd birthday in a way that he’ll never forget. To do this, Chris decorated the house in honor of the pup and gave him the two things he loves most in the world: treats and a nap.
Bully doesn’t have many teeth, but they broke a soft cookie for him to enjoy, then went to bed.
He really likes to sleep, so this is the best gift for him.
The reunion ended in the best of ways, but it should be noted that Chris always makes sure that all the senior dogs he cares for feel special. This is why the man celebrates special events that occur in his refuge and organizes parties to commemorate important dates.
We celebrate the end of chemo treatments, birthdays, dog adoptions and we know they celebrate Christmas in July if we think someone won’t arrive before Christmas.
Without a doubt, thanks to the work of the Hughes family, Bully had a day that he will never forget and, surely, he will have more celebrations to enjoy.
