18-year-old surrendered dog

Latest on 18-year-old owner surrendered dog

Thousands of people, from across the nation, have been hoping against hope that an 18-year-old owner surrendered dog named “Muneca” would be rescued from a busy California animal control facility. On Wednesday, the elderly dog was rescued and she is already receiving veterinary care thanks to the help of a San Diego area non-profit rescue group.

The Frosted Faces Foundation updated Facebook followers about the owner surrendered dog:

Two days ago 18 year old Muneca was surrendered to Baldwin Park Shelter covered in fleas. Elaine Seamans of the At-Choo Foundation and the talented John Hwang teamed up to get her story heard, and today she is on her freedom ride down to sunny San Diego as our newest Frosted Face!

The group added:

Urgency and passion stir the animal rescue community, so when an 18 year old purebred dachshund enters the shelter system there is no shortage of foster and adoption offers.

Muneca, who was photographed at the Baldwin Park Shelter by John Hwang, took her freedom ride from the facility on Wednesday morning with rescue agency volunteers and she is now at the San Diego Bay Animal Hospital undergoing lab work, x-rays and getting fluids – according to her rescuers she is “very lethargic.”

    I adopted a dog over 15 years in age……..I did not care about his age or past or anything about him except he was/is a dog needing a person…….We are inseparable…..I was 71 years old at the time, the first dog in my life. He is the love of my life……..I have always had lots of indoor cats, all of whom fell in love with our new dog…….Today the dog (named Buddy by my vet) is 21.6 years of age…….I would not trade him for anything……After Buddy and I had been a pair for a couple of years, I found a beagle on a remote highway. I finally captured her…….off to the vet to see if she were safe to be with Buddy. YES! They have been inseparable ever since…. Almost as if they are glued together……Buddy is 6 pounds, Beagle is 30, having turned about 16 this past summer. Poor Beagle had a lot of medical problems including back and neck surgeries at $6,000. She needed to be spayed, cured of Lymes’ disease and heartworms,etc. We built a ramp so she could go out into the fenced year because the vet said NO STEPS. I hope no one would reject ME because I am a senior with a few diseases! Get yourself an older pet and rejoice every day the two of you can love each other….
