The Humane Society in Quincy, Michigan, recently received an old Chihuahua named Scooter, who had just lost his lifelong owner. The grieving dog remains unusually quiet in the shelter. However, it is your sleeping routine that is breaking everyone’s hearts.
Once he’s completely wrapped in his dear star blanket, he simply starts to cry. He not only misses his owner, but is also afraid of what is coming for him.
In one last attempt to help Scooter, the shelter staff shared a photo of Scooter’s nightly ritual on Facebook.
It is sad to note that many old dogs that lose their owners have to face this tiresome fate. They need love to heal, but no one wants them. Share the story of Scooter and help him find a new home.
Update: Scooter’s post tugged at many hearts across the world. Adoption applications dropped in from places as far as Italy. Eventually, the shelter chose a local woman named Jessica Howard to adopt Scooter. Jessica is a loyal rescuer who has rescued many dogs before. She promises to help Scooter live comfortably in his senior years.
Scooter is still dealing with a lot of emotional pain, but with love from Jessica and his new siblings, he is gradually coming out of his shell to embrace his new life. Lately, he has been dozing off peacefully, as the nightmare of loneliness doesn’t bother him as much!
