At the age of 15, she became a large dog homeless because her family no longer loved her


the ripe adulthood of 15, a senior dog finds herself homeless in California. The elderly dog, name unknown, was given up because her owner could not afford her care.

The volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, writes:

I’m an approximately 15 year old female Chihuahua. i’m already spayed. I even have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 11/12. i will be able to be available on 11/12. you’ll visit me at my temporary home at C409. My former family who owned me for had to offer me up because they couldn’t afford the care i want .

The senior dog is found within the shelter’s “medical” facility – the rationale has not been released.
