Old and sick, Lloyd is living his last days, but everyone around makes the rest of his life as exciting and fun as possible. Before leaving, he has a good list of adventures that he has to go through.
«Despite his ailments, he loves life,» Amy Lewis Lloyd’s adoptive mother said. This 12-year-old dog is suffering from serious illnesses that will leave him short-lived, but a volunteer and the rest of the SPCA Niagara team are working to make his daily life as beautiful as possible.
Along with advanced age, Lloyd has kidney failure and a swelling on his hind leg. He was discovered wandering prior to arriving at an orphanage in Niagara Falls, New York, but he likely had a family before.
SPCA Niagara actually believes it was abandoned by its former owner, who couldn’t take care of him anymore.
Despite being sick and hard of hearing, Lloyd is extremely friendly and loves people as much as he does other animals. He constantly wags his tail to express his joy.
On August 1, he was made an honorary member of the Lockport Fire Brigade. At the barracks, he received countless hugs from firefighters who offered him a ride in one of their trucks.
The older dog also visited the Niagara Aquarium and tasted ice cream. Other adventures await him, and he is determined to live them to the fullest until his last day.
Amy Lewis says she is «very grateful to the community for showing such love to Lloyd».
