Owners dumped elderly dog

Owners dumped 13-year-old dog who can barely walk

Spread the love

In the twilight of her life, a 13-year-old dog named Nicky finds herself alone at a busy California animal control agency. The elderly dog is in poor condition – in fact, she can barely walk. One would assume that Nicky’s family would have cherished each and every last moment with their pet, but sadly, this is not Nicky’s reality.

On Saturday an advocate posted a heartbreaking video of Nicky and wrote:

This is how Nicky, #A0828898, looks when she’s tries to walk. She is 13 and dumped on 8/22.


Nicky is in desperate need of assistance. It is obvious that she is in pain and does not feel well – the last place she needs to be is in a loud, frightening animal control agency. Please share Nicky’s adoption information and help her find someone who can get her into a home and give her the care that she needs for the time that she has left.

    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 Nicky 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 disabled furbaby???

    They should have contacted the many groups that offer financial assistance for vet bills………

    I hope Frosted Faces or Leave No Paws Behind or another rescue group can save Nicky. 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…….
