Dog Spends 20 Years Living With His Owner, She Dumps Him At Shelter For Being Too Old


Meet Sonoma, a 20-year-old doggie who is nearly blind and deaf
and was just dumped at a shelter for being ‘too old’. The poor
dog was so confused, suddenly finding himself in a strange new
place without familiar faces. Luckily, Frosted Faces
Foundation, a senior dog rescue based in San Diego, stepped in
and decided to do everything so that the rest of Sonoma’s life
would be spent with dignity. “At any age, the only languages a
dog will ever know are fierce loyalty and love,” Kelly Smíšek,
founder of Frosted Faces Foundation, told The Dodo. “There is
nothing one can say to explain to your dog all of the reasons
you feel your decision of abandonment is justified, and that is
why we operate Frosted Faces Foundation.”

The vets checked his health. Apart from an ulcer in his eye
that they treated, infected ears, a handful of masses and
skin tags, his blood tests came back fine. “Perhaps the only
thing he requires beyond the treatment for his eyes and ears
is a loving home!” Smíšek added: “Sonoma’s days will go on,
his heart will heal, and we will be his advocates. “

Whoever Sonoma’s new foster parents will be, Frosted Faces
will be helping with the medical expenses for the rest of his
life.
