Scared and nearly blind senior poodle surrendered to shelter

At the Riverside Shelter in California, Bubba was surrendered on Tuesday by his owner who could no longer care for the dog properly. How does anyone explain that to Bubba? The white miniature poodle may be blind, and with that impairment, the senior dog is even more frightened.

    If I was in that area, (I live in Seattle) I would foster this precious treasure in a heartbeat. He would get lots of snuggles to reassure him that the world is OK!!!
 My husband and I specifically adopt older animals. Senior pets are fantastic companions and show their love every chance they have…… But sadly, I don’t think we are in the “majority” of adopters…..
    The POS family has reserved spaces in Hell waiting for them where they will burn forever for their cruelty to their senior furbaby…….
    Do people really think there is a long line of potential adopters for elderly furbabies???
    I hope a local adopter or rescue can open their heart and home for this precious treasure!!!
It is heartbreaking to think of seniors being euthanized when they should be with their family…… to me, the worst fate is to be euthanized alone, afraid, in pain and unloved……. I am praying that St. Francis looks out for this precious little treasure……
