Dog Found Lying Next To Owner Who’d Passed Away 6 Weeks Prior


he loyal dog emptied the toilet bowls and cupboards and kept returning to her dad’s side where she was found on the brink of starvation.

Dropsaw resided with her owner in a tiny hamlet outside of Brisbane, Australia. They stayed to themselves and went everywhere together because no one else was around.

However, because the man was so isolated, no one noticed when he had a heart attack. Dropsaw was left to fend for herself, and six weeks later she was discovered sleeping close to her owner’s body.

Within the first two days, the dog drank all of her water and ate all of her food, forcing her to scavenge the home for whatever she might find.

She’d emptied the toilet bowls and ransacked the cupboards, but she kept coming back to her owner’s side. When she was rescued, the unfortunate canine had lost nearly a third of her body weight.

When the community learned of her need, they banded together to assist her. Dropsaw was taken in by Red Collar Rescue, a non-profit organization in Queensland.

Chris of Red Collar Rescue agreed to foster the puppy, but the plan backfired when Chris and her husband, Bob, fell in love with her and chose to adopt her! Dropsaw has not only been given a second chance at life, but she is doing so with someone who shares a name with her former owner.
