To think that a family could reject an animal because it is sɪᴄᴋ is inconceivable for animal lovers like us, but sadly, that is the situation that Thanos the dog is in.
This big beautiful dog was rejected by his family because of a ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀᴏᴜs ᴛᴜᴍᴏʀ growing on his head and only a few weeks to live. Thankfully, Luciano Karosas, from Berazategui in Buenos Aires, welcomed Thanos into his home so he could live his last days with unconditional love.
While waiting to be adopted, the sick puppy was rejected by 4 families because of his illness. The 21-year-old couldn’t resist giving this dog all the love in its final weeks after hearing how many families refused to accept it because it couldn’t cope with his illness.
Having also suffered from such a ᴍᴏɴsᴛʀᴏᴜs illness, Thanos faced constant rejection and was sent back to an animal shelter by four different families.
He said: “I walked out with a piece of my heart in my hand. Luciano not only wanted to make Thanos’ final days as comfortable as possible, but also managed to save him and take him to the local vet clinic to find out if they could remove the ᴛᴜᴍᴏʀ”.
According to Unilad: “I found it difficult to adapt to the idea of how little time we would spend together. I took her to the stem cell vet to see what we could do, looking for a little more hope (getting her to live for 40 days) and told me there was no treatment that would last that long.”
After the ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ news that nothing could be done, Luciano simply decided the two would make the most of the finite amount of time Thanos had left. Make him happy in his final weeks
Thanos was given all the love and pampering in the last weeks of his life but eventually the disease struck and Thanos passed away earlier this year.
I can’t believe that this sweet dog has been rejected by so many families in the hour of need. All he needs is a little more love when this ᴛᴇʀʀɪʙʟᴇ ᴅɪsᴇᴀsᴇ breaks out. I’m glad he’s not in pain anymore.
The kind-hearted Luciano who carried Thanos and loved him as he deserved. Rest in peace, Thanos.
