Family Abandons 17-Year-Old Dog Because She’s ‘Too Old’

By Meghan Walsh
Dogs offer their unconditional and eternal love to their owners and best friends, which is why one Border Collie was heartbroken when she realized her human family didn’t feel the same way about her.

[post_ads]On Feb. 7, a family came into the Los Angeles County Animal Services facility in Lancaster, which is a high kill shelter because of the amount of stray and surrendered animals in their care, with their 17-year-old dog named Maddison, who had given the family years of unconditional love and companionship.

Tragically, the heartless family coldly told the shelter’s staff that they were there to surrender Maddison, who they claimed they had owned for five years yet the shelter suspects they likely had Maddison her entire life, and when the stunned staff asked why, they simply explained that she was ‘too old‘.

“They said that I spend most of my time indoors. I do not show interest in small children. I have begun housetraining, but I still need some work. [post_ads_2]I am good on a leash. I am just learning obedience skills,” The staff explained in Maddison’s adoption ad.

“Few dogs make it to 17 years of age – those who do should be spoiled by their owners, not dumped at a busy, loud and frightening animal control agency,” said Antje Stobbe, a worker from the shelter who shared Maddison’s adoption ad to help find a home for her before it was too late.

Thankfully, Antje’s plan worked. Her post went viral, and within a few days, it had been shared over 860 times. Maddison was finally adopted just in time and is now happily living with a new loving owner who will never abandon her.
