Update on Ewok-looking senior surrendered by owners to be euth’ed

Volunteers and rescuers were at a loss for words when a tiny Ewok-looking teddy bear listed as 20-years-old was surrendered to the Harris County Animal Shelter. Terrified , confused and wondering why he was there, Radar just looked around in pure fright.

“You see, Radar is TWENTY YEARS OLD,”(20-years-old) wrote volunteers from the shelter on the rescue Facebook page. “His owner requested that he be euthanized because he has diarrhea and is vomiting. So this guy sits and waits all alone. Does he know he doesn’t have much time? Is he desperately searching for his owner?”

Sadly, Radar spent the night at the shelter depressed and frightened, however the American Justice League stepped in and rescued the sweet senior. A trip to the Oak Forest Veterinary Hospital told his story:

“He has little to no muscle tone in his back legs and walks like a very very old dog. Which by the way, he IS old but he is not 20. He is running a fever and our vet believes it’s from whatever is wrecking havoc in his gut. His bottom is so tender that he screams when touched near his rectal area or when he attempts to poo. X-rays revealed no fractures or blockages. While we were at the vet office the vet mentioned “it looks like he’s searching for his owners…” and it’s true. He sniffs around and when he doesn’t smell someone he recognizes he picks a person and cuddles as close as possible to them.”

Radar has received medication and has made himself comfortable in his foster home. It will be a wait and see situation how Radar progresses. Check out his video – love does make a difference.

    So happy Radar is being fostered and wasn’t killed. his owners should know he was not killed but taken in by a rescue group and also make them feel the most guilt they have ever felt by letting them know how scared,confused, and frightened their dog was when dropped off. Let them also know that even dumping their dog did not take away their devotion. Scum owners to do this to such a loyal, loving, elderly dog.

    Please help Ewok. He desperately needs it. Obviously, something is medically wrong. Hopefully he is getting lots of love, pats, and scratches in his foster home. The people that did this to this poor baby do not deserve to ever own another animal. Wish there was a national data base with names of people like this so they would never be able to adopt, and also make their names and faces known.

    I missed Radar’s first dtipory, but am so thankful to Animal Justice League for their intervention in this case. Thoughts and Prayers for Radar to spend his twilight YEARS with somebody who will love him truly and appreciate his immense loyalty and devotion. His previous owner must be the original blind Freddy to not recognise this little sweetheart’s flawless love and devotion to him. This will sound hideous, but I think a full page full colour front page story in the owner’s hometown newspaper with a big photo of newly groomed Radar saying “Na na na na na” would be perfect – if not for the fact that the money would be spent in donations to Animal Justice League for Radar’s care until he has his new furever home.
