It’s rare to find an adopter who specifically looks for a senior dog. That’s what an adopter named Peggy was looking for. She reached out to Villalobos Rescue Center because she was looking for an older dog to take care of. She also asked if the organization has a senior dog that was not a pit bull.
Villalobos Rescue Center was known to rescue mostly pit bulls. This was why Peggy specifically asked if they had one of a different breed. The rescuers only had one dog with that description, which was Valentina.
Valentina is a senior dog who has a lot of health issues. When they rescued her, she was a stray. The rescuers instantly noticed that she had visible tumors on her body. She was also bald because of a flea infestation.
Valentina was brought to the vet so she can be assessed, and her masses turned out to be cancerous. Valentina has been in and out of surgery, and her road to recovery is long. Peggy was given all the details about Valentina’s health.
Knowing that her future pet has so many health issues was overwhelming. Thankfully, Peggy was ready to take on the challenge. This made the rescuers at the Villalobos Rescue Center thrilled.
Valentina is still undergoing treatment, so she can’t be with Peggy yet. The rescuers are still assured knowing that someone is waiting for her.
They are so happy that someone was willing to take care of Valentina. Once she is healthy enough, she has a place and a family to come home to. After everything that she has been through, Valentina deserves the best life.
Thankfully, Peggy is more than willing to give that kind of life to her. Taking care of a senior dog will not be easy, but Peggy is ready. Truly, Peggy is Valentina’s guardian angel.
