Charlie is an older Shepherd that was left behind by animal control when they finally got over there and took the other two dogs. They left Charlie, who had lived on a chain his entire life, probably because he had shelter, albeit a piece of crap shelter. He lived in a filthy corner of the yard, he was very, very thin and had suffered a long time. We were able to make Charlie a Chain of Hope dog, only to find out that he has cancer and severe heart worms. The tips of his ears are gone from years of fly strike on them. Charlie needed somewhere to live out the rest of his life in the most comfort we can provide him. He is not in pain right now, but the vet feels that it is an aggressive cancer and it’s probably a matter of a couple of months maybe. He still has a good appetite-especially for canned food!
One of our incredible volunteers, Wendie Hood, offered to take Charlie home and give him a place to just lay out in the grass in the sunshine, which he loves to do! Thank you Wendie for being strong enough to offer hospice care for Charlie-what a blessing you are to Charlie! We thank God for you. No doubt you will get the blessings back ten-fold from Charlie, as all of us dog lovers already know.
Please send prayers and good thoughts Wendie and Charlie’s way!
