Duchess “Duchy” has had 5 different families in her 12 years. The last person she was with for 7 years. Then he took a job overseas and chose to look for someone, anyone, to take Duchy.
When the request reached AGN there was one sentence that stuck with me. “I took her to parks, posted her information everywhere and no one wanted her, no one would take her”.
Duchy spent the first several days crying and waiting at the door for her human to come back for her. He did not.
What we didn’t know until her visit to the vet was that Duchy has stage 4 Kidney Disease. Years of the cheapest and worse foods contributed to this non-curable disease.
Her heart and her body are broken now. We are thankful we are able to provide her with the prescription diet and medication that she will now need for the rest of her life. Neither her body nor heart will ever heal but we will make certain she knows every single day how much she’s loved and that she is wanted!/div>
