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.
