In San Antonio, Texas, a senior dog named Blackie “hides” whenever other dogs are present. Surrendered by her owner, Blackie is fed in her hiding place because she is so frightened; everyone’s heart is breaking.

“We have to feed her separately in her “hiding space”. For anyone with brains that means she was being picked on because of her age,” one volunteer wrote.

On Blackie’s intake information, her owner stated he thinks he “had her for over 20 years, and she’s an outside dog.”

Blackie is so frightened at the shelter,  and she needs our help.

    WTF is wrong with people??? Most of us want our furbabies to be with us for as long as possible and we savor each and every day our precious treasures are with us……

    This so called family who gave up Blackie has reserved places in Hell waiting where they will burn forever for their cruelty…… Do they really think there is a long line of potential adopters for an elderly furbaby???

    If I were local I would offer to foster Blackie as an INDOOR furbaby!!! My instinct would be to snuggle her and reassure her the world is OK and that she is going to be fine……

    I hope a rescue group can save Blackie. She deserves to be treated as a beloved family member for however long a time she has left and not die in the shelter alone, afraid and (worst of all) unloved…….
