Joyful Ending for a Senior Shelter Dog with Kidney Disease: Finding the Perfect Companion to Cherish Life’s Moments Together

When a senior dog named Hailey arrived at the ASPCA, she had a plethora of medical conditions and required treatments and surgeries in order to recover.

What she also needed was a loving foster who would provide her with top notch care during her recovery to help her heal.

Thankfully, she found that person and so much more in Barrie.

When Barrie first saw the foster bulletin, she read that they were looking for a “long-term foster” for Hailey while she healed from two lumpectomies and treatment for kidney disease.

Barrie didn’t have experience in fostering dogs, but he she was willing to give it a try.

She and Hailey bonded instantly, and while Hailey was at the hospital for another surgery, Barrie felt so lonely going home to an empty house. This was not a feeling that she wanted to have again, so she knew immediately that she wanted to give Hailey a permanent home so they could always be together.

Hear their heartwarming story in the video below:

When Barrie first met Hailey in July 2021, Hailey had a lot of trust issues, was really hesitant, and had a lot of anxious attachment.

Today, Hailey is like a completely different dog. She is very trusting now and her energy is climbing each and every day.

“They always say that old dogs don’t learn new tricks, well, Hailey is learning new things every day,” Barrie said. “I feel like she has a new lease on life because she really went through a loss of stability, and now she’s in a place where she is healthy and she’s not as scared.”

Barrie hopes their story will encourage others to consider adopting older dogs.
