UPDATE: Lucky’s heart was broken when his family said he was too old

“Too old” is what Lucky’s family told the staff at the Carson Animal Care Center when they surrendered him on Wednesday. The 12-year-old Border collie’s eyes followed his family’s departure as they walked out. The dog had not given up though; he continued to watch and wait. Lucky wasn’t very lucky! Volunteers shook their heads in sad disbelief:

“LUCKY is 12 and he needs your help now; his heart was broken today when his family left him. Please SHARE for his life; he’s SO special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. He has not been neutered.  (I will be available on 6/4 may be an error) His former family gave him up because they thought he had gotten too old.”

Pet Rescue Report knew “too old” Lucky deserved another chance; too bad what his heartless family thought of him. And with the help of Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, animal rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts, Lucky found his groove.  Check out this dog’s freedom video and hope that every dog stuck in a shelter can be this lucky. Many thanks to everyone who worked so hard to help – one dog at a time.

    Poor baby. I wonder if this family also gets,rid of other members of their family when they get old. So sad. Prayers,for this,adorable pup to find a new loving home, where she does not make a difference. Sending my love and sharing.

    Thank You to the kind caring people who saved Lucky – he is beautiful and deserves a life that he was previously denied by some ignorant humans who deemed him ‘too old’ – maybe they will be dumped when their family deems them ‘too old’ – what goes around comes around.

    He was so confused. You can tell he was in an abusive home, he does not know what to do or act. Border collies are very loyal, known to be more so then any other breed, along with their high intelligence, This baby has not had it good in the past. Hope he finds true love and a wonderful home because he sure never had it before.

    Its ridiculous to me that so many people are taking their dogs to the shelters because they are old! Its a sad fact that in this country our seniors are treated as throw aways! There is a contract made when you have a pet of any kind! You will give them food shelter love and they give it back ten times over! You just dont toss them away!
