Abandoned in a shelter at the age of 18, this dog never thought of finding a new home

Jaripo, a senior dog, was in desperate need of a new family. The volunteers of the refuge who took him in, posted a message on social networks to help him fulfill his dream … and especially save it.

At 18, Jaripo deserved to let go of his old folks serenely and to be surrounded by love. Unfortunately, his former owner got rid of him. According to the latter, the animal should be slaughtered because of a serious illness. He therefore deposited it in a refuge, without looking back.

Euthanasia threatened the poor dog who, overnight, was abandoned. But the volunteers had other plans for him. They posted a message on Facebook, hoping that kind people would save Jaripo by adopting him.

Time was running out, as the volunteers explained to him that they could not guarantee that Jaripo was present when he arrived. If he were to be euthanized, they would. The good soul hopped in his car and drove almost 2 hours to meet the dog. Fortunately, he was still alive.
