Senior surrenders elderly dog

Senior man surrenders elderly dog saying, ‘she don’t do nothing no more’

On Friday, a senior man arrived at the Los Angeles Animal Services North Central facility in California with his elderly, 13-year-old dog in tow. The man, clearly no “spring chicken” himself, was surrendering his old dog because of her age – he was reported to have stated, “she don’t do nothing no more.”

The man admitted that the dog, named Canela, was a “great dog,” but for some reason, her aging body, and subsequent decrease in activity, was just too much for him to handle. A disgusted witness to the surrender posted a video of the man, and his clearly frightened dog, along with words of dismay and heartbreak, to Facebook:

Sometimes it’s hard not to judge…not to hate people. I came to share a happy freedom video- but I got waylaid. As I type this, I’m heartsick. ID #A0703344 is being surrendered because she is old. She’s just a layabout. She can’t hear…I asked is she a good dog? I could tell she was… He said: “Oh yes, she was a great dog.”

With her tail between her legs, shaking, he left her. I told him she was very frightened- he said: “I know, but she don’t do nothing no more- she don’t chase the cats.”

Slowing down, and aging – are acts of life, for everyone. Being cast aside like a worn out shoe should not be what happens when one enters the twilight of their life. Please share Canela’s adoption information – help her find someone who can appreciate her, and love her, for the rest of her days.

    Perhaps that old SOS maggot should be euthanized too because he doesn’t do anything worthwhile anymore except eat, sleep and shit.

    I wish I’d never saw this as I’m reduced to tears by the cruelty and unfairness of what is being done to this poor dog! I don’t even see a page on him being networked to try and save his precious life! So did this killing factory lead him down the hall to his immediate immoral death? One thing I do know for sure is that I will be praying LONG AND HARD that this elderly asshole POS NEVER,NEVER,EVER has another dog in his possession and as much as I adore the elderly I hope this old,cruel asswipe POS had nothing but karmic hell and misery rain down upon his worthless life for the rest of his life! HE WILL NEVER EVER BE GOOD ENOUGH MORALLY,ETHICALLY OR IN ANY OTHER WAY TO BE BLESSED AND PRIVILEGED WITH OWNING ANY KIND OF PET….I WISH HIM A LIFE TIME FULL MISERY AND MISFORTUNE AND I HOPE HE ROTS IN HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY WHEN HE LEAVES THIS LIFE…..OH HOW I LOATHE SCUM BAGS LIKE THIS ASSHOLE POS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Cynthia – You said it for many many of us – this old bastard needs a huge dose of street justice – hope his lousy butt gets mugged, left in an alley and no one cares. He deserves to be treated as cruelly as he treated his dog –

    I do not like this man…..so he just had a dog to be a cat chaser???? This is one of the saddest stories I’ve heard…does he have no heart & im gonna say this & I don’t care who doesn’t like it…..I hope he cannot sleep when he goes to bed at night…wonder how he will feel when his kids give him the boot when he is not too much older than he is now…..this precious girl is shaking & /she’s frightened and doesn’t understand what she did wrong for him to take her collar off, a rope collar put on & she is led away…..I pray someone comes in there today and takes her sweet little self home with them and let’s her lay around, sleep, eat and age gracefully..l.li think she is beautiful….

    I hope his kids turn him in because he is too old and stupid. REALLY. And you think you could “chase cats” if you were her age?? Now you can see why I HATE HUMANS. Praying that you sit alone in YOUR OLD AGE and wonder why they didn’t want you anymore. You old POS don’t deserve an animal in your life. DISGUSTING.
