She Appeared To Have Given up When I Looked Into Her Eyes, but She Had Little Chance of Being Saved

The gray-faced, black Lab mix who was 14 years old  had a bewildered expression on her face.
Some of her gloomy backstory was revealed on her kennel card. After Thanksgiving, her previous owner allegedly dropped her off at the shelter with the request that she be put to death.

The poor dog had problems walking and was thin. She was heartworm positive and only had two teeth. After learning about the puppy, rescuers and animal lovers began to post about her on social media.
Tommy Bull, from Crowley, Texas, was astounded when he read about the dog.


“She was a geriatric, heartworm-positive black dog with little prospect of being saved. A lot of people surrender their dogs to shelters during the holidays, which is one of the worst periods of the year for dogs.

Bull made arrangements to pick up the puppy from the shelter after contacting CAMO Rescue. He claimed that because she was a little unsteady, the workers carried her out to him. “I reached out and tightly hugged her. I wished for her to be aware of my safety. She immediately captured my heart.

He drove the dog home. They named her Ettie, short for Henrietta.
