“I knew it was fate. Then when I met him and saw how sad he was, I knew he was going to stay with me forever no matter what.”
Carol adopted Solo and welcomed him into her home.
She told: “When he first came to live with me, he kept his tail between his legs for months,”
“He was very non-reactive to dogs and people and cats, and flinched any time anyone tried to pet him.”
Later, Carol realized that Solo is practically deaf and he had serious teeth problems.
But she didn’t give up and treated his teeth problem and suddenly Solo was much happier and his mood shifted.
Carol says: “The people who live around us are always commenting on how he doesn’t even seem like the same dog anymore,”
“He didn’t smile or barely open his mouth even to pant for months, and now he smiles and rolls around and will run full-tilt across the lawn a dozen times a day.”
