Elderly Dog With Cancer Rescued After Being Left In A Parking Lot

Most of us dog owners love our pets. We couldn’t imagine life without them, and most of us would move heaven and Earth in order to make sure that our pets are well cared for and healthy.

Most of us probably can’t imagine chucking our dogs to the curb if they ever became sick. Unfortunately, not all dog owners have the true compassion it takes to care for a living being.

It’s a sad realization that there are fair-weathered owners out there who will get rid of their pets without a second thought whenever they stop being fun and become a supposed burden.

Fortunately, Theo was soon rescued and then quickly adopted by Jenny and Scott in Crystal Lake.

The couple definitely didn’t spare a second thought to anything except making sure that Theo’s final days would be full of love and happiness.

The couple made sure that the dog got to experience all sorts of fun doggie activities such as eating a hamburger at a drive-thru, swimming in a pool, chowing down an ice cream cone, as well as other activities.

Glad that Theo got the happily ever after he deserves!
