Pets would never leave us behind for any reason. But sadly, there are some pet owners are willing to abandon or euthanize their pet for personal or convenience reasons such as divorce, allergies, moving, shedding, job loss, among many others.
Recently, a piece of heartbreaking news about a man from Indiana and his dogs have been spreading on the internet. The man brought his two senior dogs, Cosmo a lab-mix and Sam a pointer, to the vet to be euthanized.
Although the dogs are already 10 years old, they are perfectly happy and healthy. The vet was shock and horror when the man decided to put down these sweet, healthy, loving senior dogs. They had lived with the man since they were puppies, but he was now abandoning them without hesitance.
The reason he gave was he was planning to move in with his girlfriend, and she was allergic to the dogs. But instead of surrendering the dogs to a shelter or trying to find them a new home, he decided that “convenience euthanasia” was the solution.
Thankfully, the vet and staff refused the man’s request and gave them a second chance. They did not euthanize Cosmo or Sam and transferred them to Begin Again Rescue, who took them in and put them up for adoption.
Shortly after, Peoples Animal Welfare Society in Tinley Park, Illinois stepped up to help the dogs find a loving family. Luckily, a couple from Lockport, Illinois named Eric and Tiffany Dybas, recently lost their beloved dog and heard Cosmo and Sam’s story. The couple instantly fell in love with the seniors and decided to give them a loving forever home.
Cosmo and Sam have settled into their new home and are now living out the best time of their life in luxury. They are spoiled and cared by their beloved owners who will love them unconditionally and see them as family rather than property.
If you love Cosmo and Sam, please pass on their story to your friend or family members. Feel free to share and don’t forget to let us know your thoughts in comments.
