The adorable pooch is getting the love she deserves!
A cute black lab with grey face looks very confused while staying inside the Kennel at Dallas Animal Services. It was mentioned in her kennel card that her former owner had dropped her in the service on the day after Thanksgiving and requested to euthanize her.

She was extremely weak and was having difficulties while walking. She was very thin and had only two teeth’s. She was also suffering from heartworm disease.

As soon as the rescuers and animal lovers heard about her condition, they started to share her story in the social media. When Tommy Bull from Crowley, Texas heard about the story, he was totally dazed.

He said that he looked at her eyes and she looked like she had given up. “She was a black dog, a senior, and heartworm positive; she had little chance of getting saved. The holidays are one of the worst times of the year for dogs, a lot of people turn them into shelters.”

After looking at her condition, he contacted the CAMO rescue. The rescuers helped him to pick the dog up from the shelter and they made all the arrangements.

“The workers carried her out to me because she was a little wobbly,” he said. “I grabbed her, and I hugged her closely. I wanted her to know she was safe. I fell in love with her instantly,” he added.

After lifting her, he took the little pooch in his home. His wife welcomed her with a warm gesture and named her Ettie, short of Henrietta. He told that they gave her a lot of attention and introduced her to their other rescued dogs, she had no problem with that.

Slowly she gained weight as they provided her with nutritious food that was easy to chew and digest. They also started the heartworms treatment and medication for arthritis.

Now, the lab has blossomed with the love and care. She now plays around and loves to walk with Bull’s and other rescued dogs.

“When I hold the leash in front of her, she knows it means she’s going out. She will come up and let me put the leash on her. She will sometimes take off down to the corner, she can walk pretty fast,” Bull mentioned.

Bull has given a special message to the one who is planning to adopt a senior dog: “What they give back to you is so incredible,” he said. “We can tell how grateful she is for every meal, every pet. Her life matters to us. If you can open up your heart and try, they’re so thankful. I can feel it, you can feel it, it’s very rewarding.”
