花花的故事 Flower's story:
老花是協會的 ‘三峽伯伯案件’ 中13隻狗狗中的其中一隻，也是年紀最大跟著老伯伯最久的狗狗(伯伯的故事)
SPCA met an elderly man who kept thirteen dogs in Sanxia. Flower is one of them, the oldest and has been staying with the old man for the longest time. Since little, she has always lived and stayed with him, following him everywhere and doing everything with him. Flower never left and is extremely devoted even if their life is really difficult. They are the best companions for each other.
Being eighty years old, the man’s health has gradually deteriorated. Doctors have recommended he stay in hospital for treatment, but he is reluctant as he does not want to leave his dogs. Flower lives in a broken-down car with his keeper, but it is summer and the temperature is rising. Flower is too old to bear the temperature. After discussions with her owner, he has agreed for the SPCA to help re-home Flower. The SPCA staff have taken her to a vet for a health check. We hope that she can be adopted soon and that someone can care for her for the rest of her life.
Flower is really stable, and appeared to know we were visiting to help her. When we leashed her, she followed us without resistance, but she kept looking back to see if her owner was following. It was a heartbreaking moment, but in order to help all have a better life, it was necessary. Now, the elderly man can go to the hospital for treatment. He promises that, when his health improves, he will visit Flower.
He says that Flower is the best, the most stable, and most thoughtful of all his dogs. She takes care of others dogs and only starts eating when others have finished. Although she is old, she enjoys time playing outside. She is not as energetic anymore, but still follows the other dogs around and tries to play with them. Sometimes, though, she is quiet and lazy. If you like to read or watch TV, she could be a great companion.
She has already had a health check and is waiting for someone who can give her a sweet home. If you are willing to give this beautiful friend a chance, please contact us.
