This has the makings of a three-tissue story.
An elderly Los Angeles couple who could no longer afford to care for their ailing pet delivered the dachshund to the doorstep of an animal shelter with a heartbreaking note.
“We are both seniors, sick with no money. We cannot pay for vet bills or to put him to sleep. He has never been away from us in all these years, he cannot function without us. Please put him to sleep.”
Now they are glad they chose that doorstep.
The shelter workers were so moved by the plight of the family that they decided they had to find someone to donate free medical care for little Otto and reunite the couple with their beloved dog.
