She was a 10-12 year old Spaniel mix named Charlie.I have also heard of people adopting dogs with terminal or debilitating conditions and not being charged any extra.I just hope that if you can, it’s a dog that truly needs to be euthanized, but if not, ask the associate if it’s possible to adopt another dog instead of euthanizing.
