Solo has actually lived a life that no dog deserves to live. He spent almost a years alone on the streets of Los Angeles, fending for himself. As the years took place, Solo grew sick and was also old to keep up with other dogs.
Eventually, he was too tired and weak to walk any longer and plopped down on a lady’s deck. When the lady discovered him, she named him Solovino (Spanish for “he came alone) and called Rocket Dog Rescue for assistance.
The rescue flew him out to San Francisco where he went to live with a foster. Sadly, Solo was adopted out several times but returned time and time again via no fault of his own.
Till someday, Carol Messina saw a photo of Solo online and recognized right away that she needed to rescue him.
” When I met him and saw just how depressing he was, I knew he was mosting likely to stay with me forever no matter what,” Messina informed The Dodo.
Because of Solo’s past, he was extremely shy and still didn’t completely trust people. He really did not respond to those around him in a normal fashion and he would flinch anytime somebody petted him.
But Messina soon learned that this was much less of a count on problem and more of a hearing issue. It turns out that Solo’s hearing was way worse than anyone thought– he was practically deaf. This discusses why he would flinch when anybody would touch him; he didn’t really feel comfortable with people sneaking up on him when he could not hear them coming.
His teeth were likewise very bad and causing him a lot of pain. Fortunately, Messina obtained him the surgery he required to fix his teeth, and after that, he acted like a whole new canine! It was obvious that the pain had actually been affecting the way he acted as well.
Today, Solo is an extremely pleased canine and delights in running around outdoors and even meeting new canines to have fun with. Messina has likewise learned new ways to help his anxieties caused by his deafness.
Whenever they go for a walk, he uses a harness that reads “deaf canine” to ensure that people won’t pet him without asking. Messina likewise flickers lights on and off when she enters into a room so he recognizes that she is coming and does not startle him.
Although Solo is getting older, he has a lot life left in him thanks to Messina. He will certainly currently get to live out the rest of his days in a loving home and never ever has to worry about surviving on the streets ever before once again.
” I’m extremely happy with his progress,” Messina informed The Dodo. “It is the best thing I have actually ever done with my life, and he has inspired me to get more senior canines that require hospice care.”
