Bringing a dog into your home and welcoming this precious animal into your family is a lifelong commitment. Yet for some people, despite their dog’s loyalty and unwavering love, they think it’s okay to give up on them. A sweet senior dog, named Blackie, had a tail tumor. Without any fault on his part, of course, this tumor grew and it started to bleed.
The owners of Blackie did not take her to the vet as they should have. Instead, they wrapped her in a garbage bag, threw her in the back seat of their car, and drove her to the shelter. They didn’t want Blackie bleeding in their car, so they thought a trash bag would be enough. A trash bag is for trash! Not for our precious pets!

The owners went to the shelter, gave the dog to the volunteers, and then left. It was as if the dog they had had for ten years meant nothing! Fortunately, Blackie only had to stay at the shelter for a short time. The shelter posted a video of her online and the Frosted Faces Foundation (FFF) saw the sweet girl and knew she could help her.
FFF volunteers went to the shelter to pick up Blackie. Surprisingly, despite all she had gone through and the pain she felt from her bleeding tail, Blackie was friendly and happy to meet her new human friends. Now, with her new rescue organization, Blackie has received royal treatment. They gave him a good bath, cut his nails and made him feel worthy of everything. Just as she deserved it!
Blackie was still suffering from her tumor and this had to be resolved as soon as possible. She had to have surgery the next day. And Blackie did amazing! She went through surgery with flying colors! Her story was shared on FFF social media and soon after, Blackie reunited with her family forever.
Blackie’s new family welcomed their house and changed their name to Betty. They vowed to give it the best possible life. Knowing that Betty is in her “golden years”, her family just wanted to spoil her rotten. This is what a senior dog really deserves!
We want to applaud Betty’s rescuers and her new family. Each dog deserves the best possible life. No matter what! To see Betty’s story, scroll down. And don’t forget to cherish your senior pets!
