Blind Dog Looks So Happy After Adoption, Literally.
Life Behind Bars
Living in a shelter isn't easy for a dog and being put in a kennel can be life altering. After all, everything a pooch knew and loved, like the cuddles they once received from their human owners, is gone. But as an older dog, life in a shelter is ten times harder. Just ask Muneca. Her life had become a challenge. But amazing things started to happen when she moved to a shelter.
She Loved Her Humans

Muneca was a dachshund breed, and she had a heart that was filled with love. In fact, she totally adored her human owners. Unfortunately, her humans didn't necessarily feel the same way about her. But little did they realize that their lack of interest would affect Muneca. For some unknown reason, Muneca's owner got rid of her by putting her up for adoption. But, there was a huge problem with their intended plan.
Old But Not Forgotten

People are often taught to respect their elders, but the concept doesn't seem to extend to aging animals. But the truth was that in dog years Muneca was actually pretty old. When her owners got rid of her, she was 18 years old. But her previous owners failed to realize that her age would seriously affect her way of life at the shelter. Still, the owners decided to adopt her, but their reasons for doing so weren't necessarily justified.
Is Age Really Just A Number?

The years had not been kind to Muneca, and her age had led to a variety of illnesses. She wasn't as active as she used to be either. To that end, she started to rely on her human owners more and more. This meant that she needed attention all the time. But they simply couldn't give her what she so desperately needed. Then, they got some bad news about Muneca's outcome.

Muneca's life had changed dramatically when she started to lose her ability to see. This wasn't much of a shock since she was very old. But she hadn't realized that she had so much more to lose. Her owners used her condition as an excuse to put her up for adoption. They figured that this was better than having her euthanized. But they weren't aware about the shelter's policy when it came to dogs who were too old.
