Unfortunately, the expression “man’s best friend” does not always applicable in both directions. This is also the topic of the following narrative. Four-legged pals’ unconditional love isn’t always reciprocated with the same thanks.
It is possible that an animal that has been completely devoted to its owner is simply discarded like a used or broken item. Fortunately, some individuals recognize the value of animals and, like collectors, go to great lengths to preserve these unique possessions.
A family in Atlanta, Georgia, asked a veterinarian to euthanize their dog. Repeated periods of aggressiveness or even incurable health problems are commonly associated with such a drastic decision. The masters, on the other hand, were just “weary” of caring for him and decided to get rid of him this time.
However, the doctor in issue chose to ignore the suggestion and pursue a different path. He called Melissa Elliott, director of the Old Dog Home Center, after a series of phone conversations. The facility, which is located in Conyers, Georgia, is a shelter for dogs over the age of seven.
It’s similar to a senior center, but for homeless or abandoned animals. The dogs are allowed to stay here for as long as it takes to find a new home or to live out the rest of their lives in peace.
At the time, the center was completely packed. Melissa, on the other hand, was so moved by this terrible narrative that she went out of her way to welcome a new visitor.
Holly, the dog, was between 10 and 12 years old at the time. His condition was fine, but he appeared to be bewildered and had a minor infection. That would have accounted for his unusual behavior. Melissa brought him to her, took care of him, and spoiled him as much as he could. Holly finally felt calm and safe after a long time. He’ll be able to be adopted again once he’s fully recovered, by someone who will adore him until the end of his life!
