On death row because of boyfriend: Lifelong puppy pushed out door by owner

Susie Q may be on death row because of her owner’s boyfriend who just didn’t like her; the dog was just too old and too slow. Found wandering in the streets in Pasco County, Florida, the dog’s microchip led the shelter back to her owner. When contacted, the woman told shelter workers she didn’t want her dog back even though she had been with Susie Q since she was just a puppy. The heartbreaking story begins here:

“You got me as a puppy, when I was small and cute. You took such good care of me; you even let me sleep in your bed. You had me spayed and micro chipped. When I didn’t feel good, you would take me to the vet. You kept my shots up to date. You always told me what a good girl I was. We had so much fun.”

And why didn’t the owner want Susie Q to come home? When her boyfriend decided he didn’t want the dog around anymore, the woman kicked the dog outside, closed the door and finally Susie Q  just wandered away:

“Time marched on. My face grew grey, my step a little slower. You met a new friend, you two became close. I overheard him say that he didn’t like me or want me around. I was confused when you threw me out. I spent every day and night outside. As my body ached from the cold, hard ground, I could only think of how warm it was inside. I miss you Mom. I don’t know what I did so wrong.”

Fortunately, a Good Samaritan found her aimlessly wandering and took her to the shelter where she was named Annie; here at least she would be fed, safe from predators and traffic. She shook in her kennel and watched everyday for her mom to find her, but the real sadness came the next day:

“They found my chip this time. I was so happy when they told me that you would be here soon. You told them my name so they started calling me ‘Susie Q’,,, just like you do Mom. Time went by and I started to shake again. I wondered what was taking you so long. The shelter worker came and moved me into another kennel; in a quieter building. They call this building ‘A’. As she closed my kennel, she told me that she was sorry, that you were not coming. She said that you do not want me anymore. Mom, I don’t understand. You told them that you had me since I was a baby and that I am old now. You told them that I love other dogs and even cats. You also told them how I love farm animals. Mom, what did I do so wrong that I can’t come home?”

On Sunday, Susie Q has both rescue organization and adopter interest. Please continue to share her story until she is safely out of the shelter. And if dogs could talk and tell their story, how many would have repeated the sad plight of Susie Q? Be a responsible pet parent; make sure you are committed to the lifelong responsibility; guaranteed to be returned many times over with lots of love and loyalty.

Anyone wiling to adopt may email the shelter @ Adoptionpartners@pascocountyfl.net. Please include Susie Q’s ID#A35691561. Email may be sent anytime but you must come in person to adopt. A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here.

    Get rid of the boyfriend, if your new partner doesn’t like animals and especially your own then this does not abode well for the future when he will toss you aside or worse, commit domestic violence. Wake up girl, smell the roses & go get your dog back after you kick out your boyfriend.

    The woman should throw her boyfriend out. I still don’t understand how anyone who had a dog since it was a puppy, and then in the pup’s senior years throw the dog out, because the boyfriend didn’t want the dog.The woman is no better either. They both should rot in hell!

    Any woman who’d do this to her dog for a ‘man’ has more than one screw loose. A REAL MAN would NEVER, EVER make such a request or demand of anyone, nor is someone like that worth it!

    She should have thrown the bum out the MOMENT he suggested she get rid of Suzy Q instead of getting rid of the dog who loves her. If HE loves her at all, he never would have demanded such a thing of her.

    This is just heartbreaking for Suzie Q. I hate to tell her disgusting owner, but you lady just gave up the one thing that has given you unconditional love since she was a pup. You are in for a rude awakening, if your boyfriend dictates you get rid of your pet, then he will try to control your life for as long as you are with him!. It would be a cold day in HELL that ANY man ever told me to get rid of MY dog! You sorry POS! Prayers for Susie Q, you will find someone to love you and NEVER give you up again, I just know it!

    Just WAIT when “THE BOYFRIEND PRICK ANAD DICK ” scams this woman out of her money and he then tell her she “creeps him out so he can’t perform and actually her wrinkles around her eyes, saggy bottom, and varicose veins make him want to “hurl” . SHE will STOP and think OF SUSIE Q who loved her dearly and unconditionally !!! She will sit and cry at being abandoned by the ” Donkey Dick” her money gone and WHAT a HORRIBLE WAY SHE TREATED SUSIE Q!!! May the women have the next 10 years of Karma of bad luck….

    Man or woman, it makes NO difference! A pet owner should NEVER choose the flavor of the moment, spouse, etc over a faithful pet! Especially one they’ve grown old with!!!!
    Cruel, heartless woman, I hope Karma bites her in the ass & this”boyfriend”, leaves her all alone.
    One word of advice, PLEASE!, DON’T EVER get another pet again!
    Pets are forever. If you can’t commit, don’t adopt!

    This is happening way to often these days! Senior dogs being thrown away like they are garbage! It makes no sense to me. When you get a pet you take on the responsibility of that pet for it’s life span! They don’t come with a disclaimer that says until I get old! This is so sad on a basic level because these senior pets are usually the first one to be put down! Shelters must become no kill at this place and time! These pets have a right to life and they have the right to be allowed to wait until they are adopted or pass away from old age or illness! Putting down healthy pets must end!

    Ultimate betrayal. All because of a stupid boyfriend, who will probably not even be with her for long. No loyalty or conscience when it comes to innocent animals. Some people don’t deserve to be included in the human race. Shame!

    It’s not that uncommon, sadly. I have two seniors at home adopted from kill shelters, who were picked up as strays, had their families found, and the owners said that they didn’t care that their dog would be euthanized because nobody adopts senior pets. The shelter wouldn’t even let me take one home because of the euthanasia agreement, I insisted they call the owner to try to get him released to me. Fortunately for my bulldog, they were at home and cooperative at least. The other was a Great Dane and I guess they didn’t automatically opt to put him down because of his breed, but he was still going to be put down for being heartworm positive. They’ve been with me for two years now, and I have absolutely no regrets.
