Disabled Dog Abandoned With A Bag Of Diapers And A Note, Ended Up Living Her Dream

Date January 15, 2019

Lunita was a beautiful little dog that had a disability, which is why she was abandoned on the streets of Salta, Argentina.

When Lunita was found, she was tied to a rail near a dog grooming shop. Beside her, there was a note with her name, age, and an explanation. Also, Lunita’s hind legs were attached to a wheelchair.

Her ‘very considerate’ former owner didn’t leave her any food or water. Luckily, one of the dog-grooming employees noticed her and notified rescue organization LUBA Salta. Two volunteers came for Lunita.

This is how the little dog got in a shelter while her information ran online. There was little hope of finding her a new home, until a family from the United States showed their interest! A fundraiser was launched to pay for Lunita's transfer to the United States.

Unfortunately, her new family didn’t know how to take proper care of the disabled dog. A mite infested bed led to Lunita developing a very serious staphylococcal infection. After this new tragedy in her life, Lunita was taken in by another adoptive family.

Due to the infection, scabies, and urine scalding, Lunita lost all her hair from the waist down, including the tail. She also had a serious urinary tract infection and was in so much pain that she would scream every time a caretaker wiped her bottom and private area. It took serious effort and medical attention to treat all the ailments, but she finally recovered!

Along with her new family and good health, Lunita saw the snow for the first time, traveled a lot, made new friends, and even enjoyed birthday parties. However, shortly after celebrating her 11th anniversary, she fell sick and had to be admitted to ICU where she passed away surrounded by her loved ones. Lunita's story came to an end due to old age and struggles of the past. But one thing’s clear, the last chapter of her life was indeed a happy one.

Lunita is an amazing example of perseverance. May her life serve as an example for those who think things aren’t going to get better. Rest in peace, Lunita!
