Susanne was reading the website of her local rescue organization when she came across a photo of a Jack Russell terrier mix that shattered her heart. She already had one rescue dog at home, and she began to fantasize about what it would be like to assist another puppy in need.
“He was ten years – old, and I knew I loved him immediately!” Susanne told The Dodo, who asked that her last name not be used. “I have a question.”
Neville’s history was a mystery when he was discovered wandering the streets as a stray. Susanne could tell, however, that the small puppy had not had an easy life. While Neville was clearly relieved to be secure in his new home, the adjustment wasn’t always simple, particularly when it came to meals.
Susanne explained, “We feel he was exploited for breeding and has definitely been mistreated.” “At first, he used to compete,” says the narrator.
Neville’s most cherished item two years later is his food dish, which he carries with him everywhere he goes.
Neville even brings his food dish to his bed and sleeps with it each night, thanks to a little help from his mother.
Susanne said, “I suppose he just never had one of his own and now knows he does and is assured a consistent source of excellent, nutritious meals.” “He simply appears to be so heartbrokenly appreciative for a plain dish. For him, I believe it signifies warmth and home.”
Susanne has found Neville to be a continuous source of joy, and she hopes that his tale will encourage others to adopt a senior dog.
Susanne described him as a kind, calm, and modest spirit who follows her around everywhere. “He’s 12 now, and he’s deaf and has trouble seeing — but he loves life!”
