Dogs are some of the most loyal, beautiful creatures in this world. I’m pretty sure you agree with me and that’s why you’re reading this lovely story.
It’s always inspiring to see a dog be treated so poorly and they don’t even act any different. Unconditional love is what we all need and Blackie the doge is here to show us an example of that!
Blackie showed up to the front steps of the shelter like this, and excuse me while I go cut these onions even more. Her owners were so blinded by her condition, they didn’t care about the well-being of the dog.
Apparently Blackie had a bleeding tumor on her tail and instead of taking her to a vet they dropped their bundle of joy at Carson Animal Shelter in Gardena, California.
“Blackie was surrendered because she was bleeding all over,” Kelly Smíšek, executive director of Frosted Faces Foundation (FFF), told The Dodo.
After being dropped off though, Blackie didn’t let being in pain stop her from being a fun-loving dog. She was put in the medical area of the shelter and they began her treatment right away.
After seeing a video on Facebook, FFF came to the rescue and picked Blackie up from Carson Animal Shelter.
Smíšek went on to say that, “She is eager to please, curious and quickly finds her human’s side in times of uncertainty. But you can tell that her love has not been reciprocated for a long time.”
After leaving Carson Animal Shelter, Blackie took a nice long nap in the back of the van they were transporting her in. “She slept for the entire car ride, and when she arrived at FFF, she wanted to sniff everyone and everything,” Smíšek recounted. She knew life was going to get way better.
They gave her a nice bath and she seems to have enjoyed that after looking at these images. She probably couldn’t even remember the last time she had a bath. That’s not due to a dog’s poor memory, just because it probably hadn’t happened in a good long time.
Blackie is expected to make a full recovery from her tumor on her tail, and in the meantime the volunteers at FFF are giving her all the tender loving care she needs, including giving her hearty meals that she loves.
Smíšek concluded, “We are privileged to be able to provide Blackie the care she desperately needed, offer the compassion that her family clearly did not qualify her for and we are honored to find her a family that she, FFF and all her virtual supporters will be proud of.”
