Annie is at the twilight of her life, but she got a fresh start thanks to a young woman who decided to do everything to make her last days filled with joy and happiness.
A senior dog is having the happiest end of life thanks to the person who was touched by her story after she was abandoned, reported WFAA.
Lauren Siler lives in Dallas, Texas. She shares her accommodation with her best friend Lisa Flores. Recently, the young woman was in Anchorage, Alaska, about to fly home, when she came across an Instagram photo of a 19-year-old dog who needed a family. The sight of that “sweet little face as she sat in her poor little cubicle” had completely overwhelmed her.
Annie, the dog in question, was at the Dallas Animal Services shelter. The Labrador Retriever/Pitbull mix had just been brought there by her previous owners, who said she had stopped walking and eating.
Before her return to Texas, Lauren Siler learned that The Pawerful Rescue association had taken, but was looking for a foster family for her. She and her roommate immediately contacted the organization to offer to take her into their home.
Annie was thus able to discover her new home. Her 2 benefactresses started sharing photos on Instagram, and success quickly followed. The duo compiled a to-do list for the dog; Annie was able to taste hamburgers, had the right to a birthday party or even took part in a professional photo shoot. She also celebrated Christmas and Valentine’s Day far from their normal dates, in July and August respectively.
The popularity of the senior dog continues to grow, as Lauren and Lisa share photos and videos of her on the social network. Greeting cards, donations and gifts come to her from everywhere, even from abroad.
Through their approach, the 2 young women hope to encourage other people to open up to older dogs, either by adopting them or by becoming their foster family.
Annie, she continues to chain pleasures and discoveries. The vet had told the volunteers that she only had one month to live, but 4 months later, she is still there with them.
