Florida – When a 20-year-old dog was surrendered to a Florida animal shelter, hearts broke. The Weimaraner, named Dax, was utterly confused by the loss of the home he had lived in for two decades.
Big Dog Ranch Rescue created a poignant TikTok video that revealed Dax’s confusion and sadness – his emotions clearly evident in his expressive eyes.
The animal welfare agency offered a gentle reminder that pets are not mindless objects that can simply be given away; they are family.
But Dax’s story does not have a sorrowful ending. In fact, his story has a beautiful ending...an ending defined by love. According to Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Dax was welcomed into a foster home. The animal welfare group said:
our dedicated team at Big Dog Ranch Rescue transported DAX from his temporary foster, Jozel who graciously cared for DAX while we searched to find the perfect home that would give DAX the love and care that he deserves for the remainder of his life.
DAX was welcomed by his forever mother and his new siblings with loving open arms.
Because of generous supporters, Dax was given a new wheelchair, medications, an orthopedic bed, and “lots of toys” to enjoy at his new home.
💙PLEASE WATCH-LISTEN-READ-SHARE This is DAX 🐾 a 20 year old Weimaraner surrendered by his owner and is now foster care with Big Dog Ranch Rescue. It is unfathomable to think about a loving loyal 20 year old senior dog, at the end of his life span, given up and left confused and heartbroken. 💔 Please let Dax’s story be a reminder of the responsibilities of being a dog owner, physically and emotionally. They are not just dogs-they are our children and our family memebers who love us unconditionally and remain forever loyal, asking for little in return. 💙Miracle Fund Donate: Link in Bio ☝🏻 🐾 Adopt: www.BDRR.org/adopt 🏠 Foster: email@example.com 💚Donate: www.bdrr.org/donate 💲Venmo: @bigdogranchrescue 💰CashApp: @bigdogranchrescue 💵Zelle: firstname.lastname@example.org #bdrr #bigdogranchrescue #fyp #savedogs #trending #adoptme #dogrescue #viralvideo #adoptdontshop #shelterstories #seniordogrescue #Weimaraner #weimaranersoftiktok #weimaranerrescue #helpadoptme #miracledogs
Pets are not things. They feel pain, joy, love, and confusion and they deserve the very best that we can provide to them. Dax is fortunate that someone was able to open their heart, and home, to him.
