Dog refuses to leave the home she’s known her whole life.
Owning a dog is a lifetime commitment. Hence, no one should ever bring home a puppy only because it’s cute. What happens when it grows big and old? Do we just let them loose on the streets or just leave them behind?
No one knows precisely why Sophie’s family abandoned her. But workers and volunteers of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC believe that her medical condition caused her family to leave her behind. But still, there’s never a valid reason to abandon a dog and let her fend for her own.
Sophie is a sweet, gentle Mastiff. Despite her family leaving her, she proved just how loyal she is. She hoped that soon, they would come back for her. And so, this dog refuses to leave their house.
The poor dog refuses to leave waiting for her family to return. She slept on the old mattress lying on the floor. She spent most of the day sleeping because her hind legs and hip hurt, and she can barely walk.
Sophie is hopeful. But unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like her family’s coming back. They’ve driven away, and they left her behind.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC transported Sophie to New York City Specialty Hospital. There, she received the care that she needed. The prognosis is still unknown at this time, but the results of her CAT scans are extremely concerning.
The vet team suspects that Sophie probably has cancer said Rescue Dogs Rock NYC Co-founder Stacey Silverstein. They aren’t convinced that it’s just an infection as they initially thought it was.
Sophie will have an additional bone biopsy done to confirm her condition. While everyone is hoping for the best, the rescue team and her entire veterinary care team are reaching out to everybody to help pay for her medical expenses. So far, Sophie’s laboratory tests and initial treatment already cost $5,000, and there’s more to go.
Our hearts break for you, Sophie. But we hope the best for you. Keep fighting, sweet girl.
Make sure that an abandoned dog is not part of your legacy.
