For all pet lovers who have lost their faithful companions too early, what would we have given to have had 18-years of companionship with our beloved dogs? Unfortunately, on Saturday, October 5, what would seem like a truly heartless owner, surrendered their 18-year-old Yorkshire terrier to the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter.

On a public Facebook networking page, animal advocate Lois Chisholm is hoping someone is able to help Dora. Within 12-hours of posting the senior’s dog plight, animal lovers continue to share Dora’s emergency.

    Heartbreaking….. I am in Northern California and would foster this precious treasure in a heartbeat if she were near me…… we promised my Dad on his deathbed that we would make sure his dogs had a home….. I do NOT understand why/how individuals are so cruel and selfish…..
