In Valparaiso, Indiana, two healthy dogs that had been taken to a veterinarian’s office by their owner for  “convenience euthanasia” have found their forever homes.

The story of Sam, a pointer and Cosmo, a Labrador retriever mix, originally seemed as if they had a loving home. After all, their human had cared for the dogs for the last ten years. And then the fate of the two dogs quickly deteriorated. Their owner got divorced and was moving in with his girlfriend. Guess what? Yes, she was allergic to dogs.

Sam and Cosmo were whisked off to a veterinarian in Portage and their owner requested a “convenience euthanasia.” That is when healthy pets are killed for personal or convenience reasons. The veterinarian refused. The dogs were healthy and friendly; surely they could be with a new family who would love them. According to the Star Telegram, Penny Emerson, president of Begin Again Rescue Co. in Valpariso was saddened by the story of Sam and Cosmo and offered to help.

In June, the dogs were taken to Peoples Animal Welfare Society in Tinley Park, Illinois, and that’s where Eric and Tiffany Dybas found heard the story of the dogs and adopted them. The dogs are slowly acclimating to their new home – sleeping with their humans and playing in the yard.

Many thanks to another angel posing as a veterinarian. Many thanks to their new family. Feel free to check out Sam and Cosmo’s Instagram page:

    Would I choose my “allergic” boyfriend over my precious dogs I’ve loved for 10 years? Then to just take them to be put to sleep as a “convenience”, I hope this new “girlfriend” sees what she is letting move in with her! It looks like there is a valid reason this POS is divorced. Thank goodness the Vet didn’t go along with this monster’s wishes!

    So glad they found a loving home and are away from their selfish heartless owner!

    “Convenience euthanasia”–is that what they call murder of innocent defenseless animals these days???

    Sounds like the girl may have a “convenience allergy” or maybe a “kindness allergy”. Hope not! If so, he should have dumped her and kept the dogs!

    Then again–Sam and Cosmo deserve so much better! And, probably, the owner and the allergic fiancé probably deserve each other!

    I Hope the “Allergic Bitch” Cleans out the Bank accounts, and Charges the Maximum to His Credit Cards::: Changes the Locks on the door , steals his Vehicle and leaves town with his personal possessions to find another SUCKER!!! What a total BASTARD HE WAS JUST to DUMP HIS COMPANIONS of TEN YEARS… And he deserves to Be the INJURED PARTY::: THEN MAYBE he will remember for a moment how his little loving companion dogs felt when he dumped them!!!!
