Back on March 6th, a worker at an animal shelter in L.A. found a 13-year-old Dachshund named Otto tied up outside, along with a note
It said he was dying . . . but the owners couldn't afford to have him put to sleep. So as much as they didn't want to, they were leaving him and asking the SHELTER to put him down.
Instead, the shelter got in touch with a charity for older pets called Leave No Paws Behind. And after a few days, they realized Otto was going to pull through.
Then the charity's CEO, Toby Wisneski, got involved. According to Toby, the dog had obviously been well taken care of, not neglected. So he decided to track down the owners, and somehow DID.
They haven't been identified, but it turns out they're an elderly couple . . . and they were heartbroken, because they assumed Otto was gone.
But Toby explained the situation, got Otto back home with the couple, and the charity says they'll provide free medical care for the rest of his life. (Yahoo / KTLA / Huffington Post
