“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.
