Osito was the world’s most sociable, gentle, and well-behaved dog. Any caring family would have done anything to keep such a creature at home. However, life can be cruel to the beings of light they love at times.
This is the sad story of a small dog who not only had to endure the most heartbreaking loss after his beloved master died, but also had his family abandon him when he needed them the most.
But what a blunder the poor woman made! She couldn’t imagine his family betraying her in the worst way possible after her death, treating the helpless dog with such indifference, even if he was sick.
He was abandoned for hours in the wild, with no one caring about his well-being, after being a very pampered little dog, napping in his warm little bed while his owner scratched his belly.
Osito became seriously ill after so much neglect and abandonment when he developed an abscess that necessitated immediate medical attention.
Osito had grown accustomed to mourning inside, suffering unspeakably from not having his master with him anymore, amidst the tears and muffled howls. He quickly realized that she would never return, and that despite having a home, he and his soul were alone in the universe.
He wasn’t abandoned for long, and he ended up wandering the streets, putting us in grave danger and exposing us to disease. As if that wasn’t bad enough, as a house dog, he had no idea how to defend himself in the wild, and as a result, he was viciously attacked by other dogs.
Osito began to feel defeated, and his hopes of receiving the care he needed and leading a better life faded. It was truly tragic that such a wonderful little dog was doomed to die sick and alone.
Until, as if by miracle, the angels of Culiacán, Sinaloa, Mexico’s Fundación Amigos Animalistas A.C. appeared in his path at precisely the right time, giving him the second chance he had long deserved.
They received him to a veterinary clinic, where they were given a bleak prognosis. He had a very low platelet count, tested positive for hemoparasites, and was suffering from severe anemia in addition to the lump on his leg. Fortunately, he was taken to the hospital right away.
The poor little guy had to stay in the clinic for several days while the medication worked its magic on his sick body. He was castrated after undergoing surgery to remove the abscess.
Fortunately, he was such a good boy that he let them do whatever they wanted, and he always greeted his heroes with a big smile.
The Foundation told his sad story in Osito’s voice in a touching publication that touched everyone.
But the most important request of all was that he be placed in a suitable home, one that matched his big heart. Osito was soon ready to be adopted, thanks to his heroes’ selflessness, and the miracle happened long.
Thus, Osito himself explained on the foundation’s networks how the Duarte family, who adopted him, changed his life forever:
“I WAS ADOPTED BY A FAMILY AND NOW I LIVE HAPPILY IN A LARGE RANCH WITH MY 3 DOG SISTERS WHO I SPEND MY TIME PLAYING WITH.”
We are heartbroken that his owner’s family disobeyed her last wishes and treated this sad little dog with such love. However, we are relieved that he is now surrounded by the perfect family that he so richly deserved.
