On one of her workdays, Angel Castillo stumbled upon a black senior dog named Sherman. Little did she know, it was the start of a great adventure.
Angel loved canines so much that she actively volunteered at a rescue organization called The Dawg Squad. The rescue took dogs from the streets and kept an eye on them until they were ready to find their forever homes.
It was a slow workday, so Angel decided to take a look at the newly rescued dogs. Out of all the stray dogs, one stood out. A black Pitbull stared at Angel as if he sought for her attention. A co-volunteer explained that the dog was already a senior and previously got on the list for euthanization. Angel felt an attachment to the dog, so she signed up to foster him. Sherman was Angel’s first senior foster dog.
At the end of the day, she took the Pittie home and let him explore her house. Angel knew that the dog was shy and a bit hesitant, but it was completely normal for a stray dog. She was gentle with Sherman and took her time with him. After a few days, the dog got comfortable and became super affectionate.
Sherman had this sweet gesture where he leaned up to Angel’s side as if he was hugging her. That’s when Angel knew he was a foster fail and officially made him a part of the family.
While Angel played with her dog, she noticed something different about his right eye. She brought him to the vet and got him checked. The doctors told her that the dog had severe closure angle glaucoma. Since Sherman experienced a lot of pain and possible vision loss, Angel got him scheduled for surgery to get his eye enucleated.
Rest and relaxation
Angel’s favorite thing about Sherman was the way he slept. Since he was already a senior dog, sleeping was his favorite past time. He slept wherever and whenever he wanted, so she placed a dog bed in every room of her house for the spoiled dog.
Sherman always lied in weird positions and snored loudly. Angel found it so amusing and often made short videos of the dog and posted them online. Sherman was a big bundle of joy, and Angel loved her unique dog very much. She felt so blessed to have found the perfect dog.
