Dog that survived triple murder in his home and crawled out window onto roof set to be euthanized at shelter

Chicago Animal Care & Control is scheduled to put to sleep an eight-year-old canine that defied almost unfathomable odds. Topper was discovered as a stray on a building’s roof after a very awful series of events, and he eventually made his way to the shelter. Four members of Topper’s family were killed, with one committing suicide.

Since Topper had to be lifted to safety from the roof of a crumbling house using a crane—a devoted dog traumatized by the horrible killings of the only humans he had ever known—his rescue garnered widespread media attention. Only Topper lived, and he was found protecting the tortured spirits and rotting walls of the home from its top.

He had completely lost his universe in the span of a single instant. He is pleasant, kind, and polite. Since CACC is at capacity, additional foster parents and adopters are required to save more lives.

Six months into his stay at the shelter, TOPPER has learnt what love is from the staff members. Although he likes to be cuddled, he has become very attached to his home and would not leave. He has been at the shelter for too long and has grown too devoted to his volunteer caregiver, according to shelter officials. If adopted, he will need to be the only dog in the household.

A pleasant, quiet, intelligent, and enquiring dog who likes agility and food puzzles is TOPPER. He trots, skips, and bounces with excitement and enthusiasm. The beautiful reality known as Love, on the other hand, is pouring in his heart; all he needs right now is a HOME where it may flourish.
