Woman Saved a Stray Dog 17 Years Ago, and Now She Has to Say Goodbye to Him

Found as a stray, he was named Solovino, meaning "he came alone."

We have always admired people that rescue and adopt stray dogs. These quiet people are those who have the most important and kindest hearts. The selfless act of taking the time, the trouble, and shouldering the responsibility of taking care of a dog in need deserves our admiration and praise.



This woman named Jesusita is one of these amazing people. 17 years ago, a dog showed up at her doorstep and when she saw him, she knew they were destined to satisfy. Jesusita didn’t have much, but she didn’t hesitate to require the dog under her care. She named the dog Solovino, which suggests “he came alone” in Spanish.




Solovino is loyal to Jesus. Ever since they met, he never left Jesuita’s side. For many years, Solovino has been by Hesusita's side as her sweet and loyal companion. But years passed, and getting old is inevitable. Ailments began to show up with Solovino’s age. He had advanced arthritis and he was having a tough time walking. For Solovino, every time there is pain. Jesusita didn’t want Solovino to suffer anymore. So, she knew that it had been time for her to mention bye-bye to her faithful friend.



Kerry Armstrong, the founding father of Home Dog LA, said that they got a call from a lady who needed help to humanely put down her 17-year-old dog. Home Dog, LA is a corporation that helps economically stressed families with their pets. And since Jesusita didn’t have much, they knew that that they had to assist her, especially during that sad time. Sandra Shadic, a member of Home Dog LA, visited Jesusita’s home to assist transport Solovino. But before taking him to the clinic, they gave Solovino a special treat. The three enjoyed a hamburger meal together. That was Jesusita’s last meal as well as her loyal friend. Run free, Solovino…





They then took Solovino to the clinic. And after Jesusita said her final goodbyes, Solovino was put to sleep. It’s hard and painful to find out our furry best friends leave the planet, but it might even be too selfish for us to hold close them, although they're already in pain. Solovino and Hesusita spent 17 years of happy and loving lives, and this is the most important thing.
