Default RIP Sunny

With a heavy heart, we decided earlier this summer to send our rescued poodle, Sunny, to The Rainbow Bridge. We fostered him for two years to try and help him acclimate from the horrific hoarding situation he was rescued from to a "normal" home, but the mental damage was just too severe. We tried behavior modification and medication, but he was always terrified of everyone and everything. After consulting with the rescue's owner and my vet, it was decided to release him from his all-consuming fear and let him go. I know he's finally at peace and much happier there. RIP, sweet boy.

Beth I am sorry to see this news, but know your decision was not lightly made and was really taken with Sunny's best interests in your heart. You were generous to him in every way a person could be from his first day with you to his last.

I hope that this news circulates widely as a way to show just how damaging hoarding, milling and other psychological abuses of animals can be. Often I think healing physical injuries is the much easier thing to accomplish.

I'm so sorry for your loss. It's always a tough decision to make and you made his last few years much better than they would have been otherwise.

Hello
This post for Sunny is so very sad but a reality in the rescue world. 'WE cannot save them all', is what I was told from the very beginning. Sometimes a dog is not 'fixable' and wires somehow become entangled and cannot be freed.
It's very brave of GeorgiaPeach to post about Sunny. She did what was best for him, and that is what is important.
This is another great reason to have a RESCUE site on this forum...

So sorry for the sad ending to Sunny's story. You did everything possible to show him people and life can be good. In the end he knew kindness and had great care. Such a shame his early circumstances were so damaging. Poor little guy. You and the others who rescue/foster do the work of angels. My condolences for your loss.

I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to Sunny. He was loved and had a wonderful family for his last few years, bless you for saving him and letting him know that he mattered in this world. He is in a wonderful place now and will be waiting to see you again some day.
