After Living With A Foster Family, A Depressed Hospice Dog Came Back To Life.
Henry, a 16-year-old dog, was surrendered to a shelter by his owner. He had several health issues, including one-eyed blindness and deafness. On top of that, he had cancer.
Henry had no chance of living a happy and loving life in a shelter. But, in a fortunate turn of events, Zach Skow, the nonprofit organization Marley’s Mutts in California, came to the protection and noticed him. Zach was a regular foster dad who frequented shelters searching for dogs to foster and rehome.
Zach noticed Henry looking perplexed as a shelter worker attempted to take him for a walk. When he discovered the full extent of Henry’s medical condition, he wasted no time in getting him out of there. He didn’t know how much time the dog had left, but he was determined to shower him with love for the rest of his days.
When they arrived home, Henry was exhausted and didn’t seem to want to get out of the car. Zach could see that even the slightest movement was causing him pain. As he began to believe that Henry’s future was bleak, he could only offer kind and comforting words.
Henry awoke alert and seemed to be feeling better, much to everyone’s surprise. He became noticeably perkier after recovering from the removal of his testicular cancer.
Henry became more active by the day. He was always happy to see Zach and would follow him around. First, he began going up and down the stairs. Then he started doing short gallops until they became an entire circuit run around the yard.
Henry required the love of a family to motivate him to live longer. Zach found him a family who did precisely that.
Henry is still living the good life in California with his new family.
