Man Asks Vet to Euthanize “Stupid” Dog

Figgy the dog has had quite the life so far. At 18 years old, he’s been around for a long time in dog years. However, he recently faced a major change in his life when he was surrendered to a veterinarian by his former owners. The owners decided they did not want the dog anymore, dropping him off at the vet’s office and telling them the dog was, “stupid.” After having a few accidents in the home, they decided they simply no longer wanted the senior dog. However, staff at the office fell in love with the little dog and after the couple left, they chose to keep him alive. After a series of tests, staff realized that Figgy was blind, had several rotten teeth, and arthritis, but overall while quite healthy for and older dog. Rather than euthanize him, they contacted Muttville Senior Rescue to take him in; they quickly said yes.

As a blind dog that had been through a terrible life change, the rescue placed him in a foster home to help ease the stress of such a major transition. Then, a mere four days after he was taken in by Muttville Senior Rescue, a family decided to adopt him into their home. Figgy was placed on a list at Muttville as a “hospice dog,” which means he was old enough to simply need a safe, comfortable place to live out the rest of his life. Eileen, a woman who has rescued several other dogs from the organization, saw his profile and immediately fell in love with him.

He has been a perfect fit in Eileen’s home, getting along well with her other dog Miss Abbie who is also a rescue from Muttville. While Figgy might not have a tremendous amount of time left in his life, that does not make him any less deserving of love and comfort, no matter how long he has.
