Cayden is a beautiful and loving 14-year-old dog who was recently rescued by the folks at the Grateful Hearts Senior Dog Rescue and Sanctuary in Ohio, writes ilovemydogsomuch
He spent his entire 14 years of existence all alone in a shed and suffered throughout his life with medical issues and in pain. The folks who rescued Cayden are certain he lived 14 years in a shed because his previous owner admitted it.
Poor Cayden has teeth sticking out of his mouth, the worst ears the rescue has ever seen, is mostly blind and deaf, and has a mouth infection among other health issues. Despite his neglect and a multitude of problems, Cayden is sweet, gentle, and loving toward everyone he meets. Since being rescued, he is eating as if he never saw food before, and he likely didn’t get fed much in his life. He is very thin and his bones are visible through his fur.
Cayden’s case has been turned over to the local prosecutor’s office and the group who rescued the dog plans to stay on top of things. I Love My Dog reminds our readers to get in touch with local animal control or a local rescue if you can no longer care for your pets. Thank you to everyone involved in helping Cayden make sure his senior years are his best years.
