Blackie is a 14-year-old, blind, sick dog whose owners brought him into a Texas shelter just before Christmas. They thought that the shelter would simply put the dog down, but then something miraculous happened:
Instead of being euthanized, another Austin shelterAustin Pets Alive!agreed to take Blackie in and try to keep him comfortable, try to make him happy, for a bit longer.
Austin Pets Alive! specializes in helping animals who have medical or behavioral issues that can make it hard for them to find homes.
One of the shelter volunteers, Brunie Drummond, decided to take Blackie home, in an act of incredible kindness. Blackie’s final days won’t be spent in the cold environs of a shelter, but in the home of someone who cares about him. Talk about a Christmas Miracle!
