This sad story has a happy ending!
Lucky, an owner-surrendered twenty-year-old Labrador mix was rescued and rehomed! Yes, you read that right – this awesome senior is reported to be a whopping 20 years old!
When Lucky’s owner could no longer care for him, he surrendered his dog to animal control in San Antonio, Texas!
“Owner surrender is a death sentence, particularly for older dogs,” Nancy Stoorza of the Houston-based 4 Paws Farm told The Dodo.
4 Paws Farm are located more than 200 miles away but nevertheless rallied desperately to save the senior dog from a certain death.
“We were making no headway getting through to the shelter,” Stoorza said, so they contacted friends in San Antonio. “They stepped up immediately,” she added. Dog lovers rallied together to bring this sweet dog from the brink of death. “We are fortunate to have willing friends.”
Happily, Lucky was rescued from what would have been a certain fate. One of the friends of 4 Paws adopted Lucky. Now she has the home she deserves.
Lucky, who is “very sweet and loving,” shows how dogs fall on hard times when their humans do.
We’re so glad Lucky found a loving home where he can happily live out the rest of his days.
Good Luck Lucky!
