A family surrendered their 14-year-old to the Harris County Animal Shelter and asked the staff to have her euthanized because “she’s old.” Meet Greta Garbo, and although the Labrador retriever seems overwhelmed in her kennel, she is definitely not ready to give up on life.

“… Fourteen Years Old and her owner surrendered her and asked that she be Euthanized because  ‘She’s Old.’ Greta Garbo loved her family and they dumped her like trash when she needed them most…”

Greta Garbo weighs 56 pounds and is heartworm negative. She needs someone to rescue her and treat her with love and respect. At this time, it is not known if this dog has any serious health issues.

Check out her video… so lost and confused:

    I feel so helpless here in Northern California……. I love this breed…… they are great family members……. I am crying as I write this……. I am absolutely heartbroken that someone is so cruel to a loving precious senior treasure……. Poor precious treasure……. I just want to snuggle her and reassure her that the world is OK…….. How can anyone be so cruel to a loving family member when they are most in need of love and support???

    I hope she can be rescued and rehomed with a wonderful furever family for the rest of her life (however long it is). May she know love and snuggles for as long as she lives!!! Seniors are absolute precious treasures (& mostly want to snuggle and snooze)……. perfect “low pressure” companions……

    I would give everything to snuggle my beloved treasure MacKitty (who passed away @ 14.5, waaaaaaay too soon from liver cancer)……

    There are special places in Hell reserved for this neglected senior treasure’s former so called family for their cruelty…….
