Shelter dog left with weeks to live faces dying alone unless he finds happy home

An animal charity in Hull has issued a heartbreaking plea for animal lovers to take in a dying dog and help to make his last few months special.

Poor Arthur was subjected to years of neglect and abuse before he found himself at the Hull Animal Welfare Trust, and has still yet to find his happy home.

Now, the trust has revealed he only has weeks or months to live, reports HullLive.

The charity took to Facebook to post the desperate appeal, which has now been shared more than 2,000 times.

Staff say they don't want Arthur to spend his final moments in a kennel alone, and is urging anyone who is able to take him in to come forward.

The appeal reads: "We are asking for a special person to give poor boy Arthur a home he can call his own for the remaining time he has.

"He was an unwanted dog who has quite visibly been neglected over the years and after years of suffering he found himself with us.

"Originally we were hoping that with plenty of TLC we could get him on the road to recovery, but poor Arthur has no luck and after one unsuccessful home he returned and became a bit under the weather."

The charity goes on to say that Arthur's health problems means he will now not last much longer.

The post continues: "A couple of vet visits later and we soon realised Arthur was most likely not going to get his happy ending.

"The vets found an unknown abdominal mass and, after much discussion with the vets and among staff, we felt the risk of surgery was too great and that, instead, we would make however long he has left as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

"We don’t want Arthur to spend his remaining days/months in a kennel alone and, therefore, we are desperately looking for that special home that will give Arthur as much love and happiness as they can until that sad day comes.

"Arthur needs a quiet, adult only home with no other pets and someone with transport for any future veterinary trips he may need to make.

"Any veterinary treatment for Arthur will be covered by the trust and his happiness is our only priority."
