Owners Ditch 18-Year-Old Figgy For Being Blind And ‘Stupid,’ But One Angel Knew The Truth

Yes, it’s an unfortunate fact of life for both humans and animals.

As we age, we begin to decline.

There’s no doubt that the older we get, the more susceptible we are to both physical and mental ailments. Again, it’s just a harsh fact of reality.

But there’s a very big difference between age taking its toll and being “stupid.”

Figgy the Toy Poodle was mostly blind and toothless, which are big enough hurdles for any aging animal.

But the worst part is that Figgy was also alone; abandoned by the very people who were supposed to love him. Why would anyone do such a thing?

Well, they claimed the confused and frightened animal wasn’t merely getting on in years; he was also “stupid,” which they actually wrote down as a reason for ditching Figgy!

That’s how the poor pup came to live at the Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco, California, where it could’ve been the end of the road.

After all, few people are willing to adopt a dog that is nearing the end of his days, especially one with so many physical problems.

But is the lovely animal really “stupid?”

Boy, it certainly didn’t seem that way to Eileen, an experienced hospice caretaker who took one look at Figgy and instantly fell in love!

She found that Figgy had a very big heart and he wasn’t stupid at all…in fact, he just suffered from not having a loving caretaker, and he appeared despondent and hopeless.

The ailing pup wasn’t dumb; he had just given up hope that he’d ever feel love…

Until Eileen came along and gave Figgy a wonderful warm home, where he can live out the rest of his life knowing he’s respected and adored.

As it should be!
