Pilot flies terminal shelter dog 400 miles to spend her last days with a loving family

 Doctors said that she only had a couple of weeks to live, so this pilot flew her to her adoptive family 400 miles away so that her final days would be filled with love.

Unfortunately, not every animal in a shelter has a happy ending. Ashlyn, a sweet elderly dog that has been in a North Carolina shelter for a few months, was recently diagnosed with cancer.





The unfortunate four-footer just had a few days left to live, but a pilot made sure her remaining days were packed with caring.

It all started when Ashlyn felt a little depressed one day, and it soon became clear that she was sick. Cancer was diagnosed by veterinarians, and there were multiple lesions under the skin.





Poor Ashlyn didn't even have the stamina to run or play at one point.

The shelter has no way of getting her there soon, and the pup didn't have much longer to live anyway. However, there is one man who came to the rescue in a miraculous manner.

 

Paul Steklkenski, the director of Flying Fur Animal Rescue and a skilled pilot, vowed to get Ashlyn there as soon as possible.





The plane ride was already a highlight for the cute four-footer.

Paul posted a couple of pictures of himself and his companion in the air, which are positively cute and amazing to see. You can tell Ashlyn is having fun in the breeze, despite the fact that it took her a few minutes to adjust. Whenever the pup felt uneasy in the breeze,Paul gave her dog cookies as a treat.





The pilot became emotional during the flight after seeing how much happier this pup was than she had been in recent weeks.

Paul has always had a love of flying and pets, so he decided a few years ago that we will try to merge those two loves. He founded Flying Fur Rescue and has been transporting animals from A to B ever since.





You could see Ashlyn's smile return as soon as she met her new family.

Tracy Lancer, a caring and kind woman who would make sure Ashlyn received plenty of love and tender loving care, picked up the dog. Nonetheless, Tracy was astounded to see Ashlyn in such a state.

Tracy restored Ashlyn's weight and ensured that Ashlyn received the best medical treatment possible.

Despite the fact that Ashlyn just had a few weeks to live, she is still going strong right now.*





In reality, you might tell she's a totally different puppy now! She's been doing well both physically and emotionally. Ashlyn is back to being a puppy of boundless potential.
