Dog Found Lying Next To Owner Who’d Passed Away 6 Weeks Prior

Dropsaw lived in a small town outside of Queensland, Australia, with her owner. With no one else around, they kept to themselves and went everywhere together. But because of being so isolated, when the man had a heart attack, no one was around to notice. Dropsaw was left to fend for herself, and she was found lying next to her owner’s body six weeks later.

The dog drank all of her water and ate all of her food within the first few days then had to search the house for whatever she could find. She’d emptied the toilet bowls and raided the cupboards but kept returning to her owner’s side. The poor dog had lost about a third of her body weight when rescued.

The community heard about the sad story and rallied together to help her. Red Collar Rescue, a non-profit located in Queensland, took Dropsaw in. Chris of Red Collar Rescue agreed to foster the pup, but it was a fail — Chris and her husband, Bob, fell in love and decided to adopt her! 🙂

Not only did Dropsaw get a second chance at life, she’s doing so with someone who shares something in common with her former owner — the same name.
