This particular German shepherd had a family that he believed was his own. However, as he aged and became paralyzed, they discarded him as if he were rubbish. The elderly dog was left behind in their old abode with a broken heart and numerous health issues when they relocated. The Qua La Zampa Association volunteers discovered him near Bitonto, Bari, Italy, and named him “Heart.” Despite his difficulties with his ears, spine, and hind legs, Heart was still able to move about on his own, demonstrating his toughness.
Gianna Serena Manfredi and others formed a group called “The Remote Mothers” to take turns caring for the unfortunate canine, and Heart finally found true love in his last days. Regrettably, these days were limited, and he could only spend one year with them.
As the end of his days drew near, Gianna made the decision to join him on his final journey to the sea. The experience was truly unforgettable and left a lasting impression.
Gianna penned down her experience of visiting the sea, which was incredibly captivating. The gentle breeze blowing past her ears, the rhythmic sound of waves crashing against the rocks, and the overall peacefulness of the still winter made it an ideal getaway. She felt extremely relaxed to the extent that she almost dozed off, forgetting all the anguish caused by people who didn’t care for her, the physical discomfort she was experiencing, and the inability to run around with a playful pup chasing after her thrown stone.
Afterward, Heart peacefully passed away, comforted by the knowledge that he was cherished and loved. Although it was a sorrowful moment, it was a relief to know that he had gone on to a better place where he would no longer be overlooked or neglected.
Spread the touching tale with your dear ones.
