Sweet, 12-Year-Old Dog Picked Up As Stray, Then Her Owner Told Shelter To Just Keep Her

Orange County, FL – An elderly dog named Tyris finds herself in need of a home at the ripe old age of 12 years after her owner decided that she was no longer wanted. Now, Tyris is one of the oldest dogs at the Orange County Animal Services facility and staff there is hopeful that a home can be found for the gentle dog to spend the remainder of her life in.

On Tuesday, the animal welfare agency described how Tyris came to be in their care:

Tyris was wandering the streets alone, calmly, and walked right up to our officer who was on her street working another call. The officer tried to locate her owner, but she wasn’t home, so he brought this calm gentle beauty to the shelter. When we finally contacted her owner, her owner told our staff we could keep her. Because Tyris was “on the way down anyways.”

Describing her difficulties at the facility:

Seeing Tyris walking around the kennels and play yard, wincing at the noise, moving slowly, looking around with those sad eyes; it can be heartbreaking. Senior dogs have a hard time at our shelter, and sadly, they are often overlooked. Understandably, some adopters do not want to deal with the advanced age or the medical. It takes a special person to adopt a dog at the twilight of their life.

Tyris wants very little from this world. A soft bed, a kind voice, the gentle touch from the hand of someone who loves her…

Please share her plight and help her find a person who will love her for the remainder of her days.

Update 2/22/2023: Touch Of Grey rescue has taken Tyris in. Find them on Facebook here.

  1. This little dog is probably better off away from this idiot owner anyway given their response to the dog being found. Wonder when they get old and someone discards them because they are “ on the way down anyway” will they appreciate that off handed and cruel response to their declining health- I doubt it but maybe Karma will catch up to them and treat them the same way later in life and they will remember Tyris. Hope so.

  3. Anyone who treats the most beautiful sweet loving loyal creature on earth like that deserves to be abandoned and lonely when they get old. Maybe it’s best for the beautiful girl. Maybe she wasn’t treated kind anyway. God bless this sweet old soul. I would love to have her.

  4. The most treasured value, compassion, is in very short supply in the USA and globally. May everyone abandoning and betraying another living being of any species be sent to the lowest hell, for eternity. They so richly deserve it.

  5. My heart breaks for this pup. This owner is heartless. Thank you Touch of Grey Rescue for saving Tyris. Older pups most of the time don’t make it out and are euthanized. I hope karma finds this POS owner. I hope that when this person is old that no one helps them. The only thing that wont happen to this person is that they won’t be humanely euthanized!

  6. I thought abandoning a dog was a crime. No excuse from the ‘owner.’ She/h should at least be made to pay a fine and give that money to Touch of Grey shelter. I hope she/he gets their pay back.
