Owner surrendered dog to shelter for being ‘too old’



When 13-year-old Puppy entered the twilight of her life, her family didn’t buy her a soft, special bed and senior dog food – no, they loaded her into a car and brought her to a busy animal control agency in California. Puppy, a poodle mix, was left at the Los Angeles Animal Services – West Valley Shelter on October 17.

Advocating for this senior dog

On Thursday afternoon, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Friends of West Valley Animal Shelter, wrote:

Puppy (yes that’s her name) brought to the shelter because she is too old. That’s right, too old.
Puppy is only 13 years old and still has so much life in her. She was dirty and itchy so a volunteer gave her a much needed bath. Look at her now! New look and feeling fabulous. Ready for a new life!
Oh yes, she’s better off without that “family” of hers.
