19-year-old dog gains new life and mobility at Florida shelter after surrendering

SARASOTA, FL (FloridaToday.news) – Meet Dax, a wonderful 19-year-old Weimaraner who defied everything and found a new life after being abandoned in a rural shelter. Despite his advanced age, Dax’s story is a testament to the resilience and strength of compassion.

When Dax was abandoned at the Walton County Animal Shelter, the staff realized the need for urgent help and contacted Big Dog Ranch Rescue, one of their rescue partners. The organization intervened, securing Dax’s release from the orphanage. However, they faced the challenge of finding the right foster home that could provide the peace of mind and endless love that an old soul like Dax needed.

Eventually, Dux was moved to Love4Paws in Sarasota, where he was welcomed into the home of one of the foster families associated with the organization, who is also a board member. This loving environment provided the comfort and affection Dax needed at this point in his life.

Dax’s physical condition raised some concerns, especially his hind legs. Luckily, RUCK9, an organization dedicated to helping dogs with mobility issues, stepped in and provided Dux with a set of emergency wheels. Equipped with his own wheelchair, Dux was ready to start a new chapter in his life.

To ensure Dax’s well-being, he was visited by a veterinarian who will assess his health and formulate a comprehensive treatment plan. The goal is to provide Dax with the love, comfort and quality of life he deserves for the rest of his life.
