The owners of this cute dog decided to give up on their pet and drop it off to the shelter for this tragic reason.
The case of abandoned pups is a near epidemic. Despite the widespread campaigns which promote the idea that dogs are not just for Christmas, there tends to be a minority who will gnerally ignore this advice.
Such is the case for Cookie, a dog that was abandoned for reasons which make you wonder what those who adopted her intend to do next. Returned to a dog shelter for being too old and sick, they then traded her for a younger pup. I fear the day they find out that all pups grow old.
Thankfully the tale boasts a happy ending...Cookie has since been discovered by a loving family which has welcomed this adorable pup into their home for life...the way it should be!
