Two dogs, described as “perfect”, are sitting at an animal shelter in Long Island, N.Y. following the death of their owner.
The tale of 6-year-old “Blondie”, a retriever mix, and 8-year-old “Jazz”, a shepherd mix, is truly heartbreaking.
On a day much like any other several weeks ago, the pair was taken to their regular grooming facility for an appointment by their elderly owner. But unlike the “norm”, the dogs’ guardian did not show up when it was time for them to go back home.
By the next day, the groomer learned the tragic news – Blondie and Jazz’s elderly owner had suffered a sudden and fatal heart attack.
Fast forward to today.
Both dogs are sitting in kennel runs at the Town of Brookhaven Animal Shelter – the facility where they were taken when no other family stepped forward to offer the orphaned dogs a new home.
The dogs, once happy and outgoing, are now depressed and frightened. Eyes which were once bright and lively have now dimmed. Tails that once wagged with happiness have stilled.
The shelter staff provides this pair with as much comfort as they can, but that comfort does not change the harsh reality – Blondie and Jazz have lost their beloved guardian, their home, along with everything else that was once comfortable and familiar.
The shelter is committed to finding Blondie and Jazz a home together. The pair has already lost so much – it would be cruel to subject them to further sadness.
Finding a home for the pair should be easy based upon their list of wonderful attributes:
- Good with cats
- Good with dogs
