Signed. I can't imagine having a companion for 18 years and then just leaving her. One must be rather cold hearted. I'm glad that she is being taken care of. What lovely people.

How cruel to abandon her after 18 yrs. She must be so confused. It's wonderful they are taking good care of her, thank you.

Signed. What a horrible piece of trash! How could anyone be so awfully cruel after so many years! I wonder how they would treat an older sick parent!!!!

Noted and signed. Wish the owner could be charged with something. I can't imagine abandoning a beloved companion after 18 years. That poor dog is undoubtedly confused and depressed on top of being sick. I'm glad the shelter is showing compassion to this dog rather than simply putting her down. Thanks so much, Simone.

How would the "owner" have felt herself had she been abandoned by her family when old and ill? She does not evidently think like this, but she should. It happens, yet it should not be done to anyone, be it a person or an animal.

It is sad how the "owner" had decided, but what is there to do if it is obviously not illegal?! Friday will hardly be happy in the shelter, but she has a roof above her head and is now safe and looked after at least. I hope she will receive medical care, be treated well, and be as well as she can be in such a situation.
