Dogs are one of the most prominent and constant animals, they will stick to their owners, giving them unconditional loyalty. this is often the reason why pets when their owners die are truly destroyed.
This is the drama of a 12-year-old puppy named Guizmo. He lived together with his family for years, but gradually fate struck him in the most painful way. Years ago, his owner died, and her devastated husband followed her for two years. Therefore, her children were taken in by a cousin of the family in another city faraway from home, but the poor puppy was left homeless.
The events happened on Molinel and Le Clos des Vignes streets within the northern French town of Wasquehal.
After wandering alone within the street and always hanging round the place where he was once happy, Guizmo ended up during a dreadful state.
His condition, two years after his owner’s death, had become so painful that the residents of Molinel’s neighborhood recognized him on the road and called him a “skeleton with legs”.
“Every time I see it, i see tears in my eyes . It’s just skin and bones, it’s a deaf skeleton then blind”, a laments neighbor.
When they contacted the family’s cousin, he never told them why they didn’t send him to a shelter, leaving him on his own. He assured them that the youngsters are his priority, and he comes back every morning to feed and drink them.
He said he tried to require him away, but he always ended up going back to his old home.
“I can’t lookout of him anymore. i feel he’s more happy here than in a shelter, locked in a cage all day. a minimum of there, he enjoys nature. My cousin’s children also come to visit every time they can”, said the person .
However, the family member’s statements aren’t the same with the neighbors, who claim he’s lying. And now, alarmed, they asked the police to intervene and contact an area veterinarian to see the dog.
Guizmo can routinely be found on the road begging people for crumbs. Or eventually in his former home, expecting his owner’s return.
Down and sad, he can’t recover from the death of his owner.
Some neighbors say that they bring him food and hug him, but they see that the dog’s condition is getting worse, probably due to the sadness consuming him.
“He doesn’t even have the strength to bark anymore … although he was in a cage, if there was a person’s presence, he would enjoy walks several times each day and also get hugs”, said a neighbor of the thought that he would ultimately be more happy during a municipal shelter.
Since the case went viral, the networks didn’t take long to react immediately . “How sad! Why wait to assist him already seeing him in such a poor state? … still asking for help after two years … Unacceptable!”, Wrote one user.
“In the afternoon they remembered the poor animal, it’s within the bones, why nobody bothered to feed him? This shows the indifference to the pain of others that affects this society, they’re heartless”, Another internet user stated.
The neighbors hope that the animal rescue organization LPA of Roubaix, which has appropriated the case, will help poor Guizmo to survive.
