Guy Drops ’20-Year-Old’ Dog At Shelter And Asks Them To Euthanize Him

Radar is a senior dog who found himself in a very difficult predicament. This was still life left in this old boy but his owner did not see it that way. He dropped off Radar at a shelter and claimed that he was 20 years old. He also wanted the shelter to euthanize him. The shelter volunteers did not see a dog that needed to be put down, though.

10/2 at 11:45am- Radar is SAFE with Animal Justice League! Photos below!10/2 at 10am: We are absolutely thrilled to say Radar will be out of there shortly! We have a great rescue en route as we speak to get him out of there! STAY TUNED AND THANK YOU! Sometimes animals come in and you’re just at a loss for words. This is one of those times. This little Ewok-looking teddy bear is Radar. It’s pretty easy to see that Radar is terrified, confused and wondering where anything familiar went. You see, Radar is TWENTY YEARS OLD. His owner requested that he be euthanized because he has diarrhea and is vomiting. So this guy sits and waits all alone. Does he know he doesn’t have much time? Is he desperately searching for his owner? We’re going to be really honest. We don’t know if we can save him. He hasn’t been seen by a vet and maybe they’ll decide that euthanasia is the best choice to end his suffering. Maybe we can get enough donations so a rescue can tag him and let him pass surrounded by dignity and love. We don’t know how much time he has left, but we think he deserves a peaceful passing. Can you donate to attract a rescue? Every little bit helps. ????????????If you cannot foster or adopt, please consider donating. 100% goes directly to the rescue that saves him once freedom photos are posted in the comments for everyone to see. If he isn't saved for ANY reason, your donation is REFUNDED IN FULL! Just say it is for Radar in the notes while checking County Animal Shelter612 Canino Rd.

They saw a dog that simply needed a little bit of help. The poor pup was confused when he first arrived. He did not know why his owner was getting rid of him and did not seem to understand what was taking place. In order for Radar to live out his twilight years in peace, he would need to find a new home quickly. The noisy shelter is no place for a senior dog.

The workers at the shelter took to Facebook and they issued a plea on the dog’s behalf. Moments like these tend to leave shelter workers at a total loss for words. A volunteer from a Texas animal shelter saw the Facebook post and offered a response. The good people at the Animal Justice League put their heads together and decided that there was no way this dog could keep living in the shelter.

They wanted him to live out his final days with a sense of dignity. Once the dog was looked over more closely, the owner’s story stopped making any kind of sense. Radar was clearly not 20 years old and his actual age was actually estimated to be far below this threshold. It was clear to see that the owner had been mistreating him as well.

Good morning from Radar ☕️????He is loving his chicken breast, rice, and pumpkin meals ????What he also loves is head rubs from his foster mom. ❤️

The dog’s nails and fur spoke to the neglect that he had experienced. He has the sort of muscle tone that suggests he has been left inside of cages for extended periods of time. Stories like these always make us so sad. No animal should ever be forced to live out their final days like this. The shelter workers also believe that he is still actively searching for his old owners.

He has since been cleaned up and brought to a foster home. He still loves people and has no problem spending time around other animals. It is our sincere hope that someone steps up to the plate to provide him with a forever home where he can live out the rest of his life in peace.
