Help! Owners Dumped 13-year-old Dog Because She Was Going Blind

So very very sad its not because the dog is old ,those evil humans have mo right to only dump the poor dog .the dog on behalf of me may be a member of the family ,but those humans are worse than animals they ought to be band of getting a dog ever ever again and that they should be charge of abandonment and cruelty and be put in jail.

In the San Antonio area of Texas, a 13-year-old dog was surrendered to the shelter because she was going blind. An animal advocate wants to assist this poor girl; Violet definitely needs some help quickly.

“She’s 13 years old. Which is the equivalent of being 91 years old. She has no idea what’s going on and should be in her warm, safe bed – NOT the cold hard animal shelter floor,” the First Responder Animal Rescue posted on their Facebook page.

Located at San Antonio Animal Care Services in Texas.

  1. Poor Baby how awful I have one that is going blind and one that is now also deaf there is no way in hell that I would ever take them to a shelter not a chance in hell and that is just awful that those so called owners did that to poor baby because she gave them her best years of her life and now that she needs them the most that is what they did to her I hope there family does they very same to them.

  2. it's said not to be judgmental as we don't know the circumstances surrounding this case. There could be extenuating reasons. However, taking it at face-value, I have to say I am appalled. This beloved companion (up until the time it was dumped) gave its life to the owners and would expect to see its life out in a homely setting. It must be traumatising to be in such an alien environment. Even now I am sure she would be loyal to them should they reconsider their actions and come back for her. All my companions have died at home of old age or cancer or heart failure, right to the end, we are all together.

    1. All animals deserve the kind of love you've provided to your furbabies, Geronimo. May you always be blessed with a loving and loyal pet, even to YOUR dying day. I am looking forward to being reunited with mine one day.

    2. I had my dog 17 years until cancer took her away from me. She was a pitbull and when she lost use of her legs I carried her, when she lost control of her bladder I diapered and cleaned her, when she could not get up to eat I hand fed her. I love that dog and I would do it again.

    3. I did the same for Arnie my 18 year old Lhasa Apso. Then when he was ready to cross over I sat on the kitchen floor with him in my lap with two of my 3 kids sitting with us. We gently pet him told him how much we loved him til he took his last breath. As heartbreaking as that was, I'd have do it the same way if I had it to do again.

    4. There is no extenuating circumstances. Like children, your pets are for life. You find a way to make it work! <3

    5. My dogs are members of my family as are our horses always been in the past too. None has ever been abandoned or turned over to a shelter. I have also owned rescue dogs. Some people are evil, sadly, and they'd even abandon human beings in their families. Unfortunately, we see it all too often. If I were able, I would adopt this dog without a moment's hesitation. We too have had dogs that were born blind as well as my last dog who went blind. I only have them put down, in my home by the way on the couch with me, if they are uncomfortable before they get suffering!

  9. the first couple of sentences of this story are barely legible and it doesn't say who wrote it, odd. i hope this dog finds a safe warm place to land, there are senior rescue groups and i hope some are contacted on this dogs behalf.

  11. This dog left with a rescue in December of 2019 and is safe. Please go to ACS’ website www.saacs.net as there are a lot of dogs being overlooked that are urgent and need placement as well.

  14. There's only one species on this planet that does not deserve to be here. They cause so much unnecessary pain and suffering. Save all other species. Humans are not worthy of being saved.

  15. Well, she's not 91-yo. That method of years x 7 is outdated and inaccurate. Years are based on breed size. For instance, GIANT breeds (i.e. Great Danes, Tibetan Mastiffs, etc., don't live as long as small breed dogs). She's not a small breed dog and she's not a giant breed dog. She's either a medium breed or a large breed (I can't tell from the photo). Therefore, she's either 74-yo or 82-yo. Anyway, I completely agree that they shouldn't be allowed to have another dog. They are family, for better or for worse. If you can't commit to a lifetime, no matter what, then don't get one. Would you dump your child or your parent; because they were going blind? Same principle applies.

  16. I agree with everything you wrote. I had a 17 year old that was deaf and a 14 1/2 year old that was blind plus other medical conditions. I would never never dump them like trash. They were our family. May you RIP Billy and Maggie. ❤️

  17. Our late baby Abby had cataracts on both eyes and she was blind for more than a year but we never give up on her. Then we found an ophthalmologist to do cataract surgery which she had undergo with that doctor. Then both her eyes returned and she can see us again. Because we love her so much. ❤️������������

  18. Hi everyone! This dog went to a great rescue group last year, this story is a little old. Thanks for the outpouring of love for her. She is no longer in need of placement at this time.
