The dog, whose other name is “Pheenie,” is named Josephine. Her owner was deported, and Josephine was left behind. The minimal minimum of protection from the heat and rain was provided for her by a shipping container at a junkyard where she sought sanctuary. She lived off leftovers and crumbs that the locals threw her for nine years in order to stay alive. Nevertheless, she was eventually overtaken by time.
When Pheenie was a senior dog, her health had gotten worse as a result of the prolonged stress and neglect. She had been hit by a truck, lost her right eye, developed a spinal cord infection, deteriorating dental issues, a urinary tract infection, and had numerous excruciating breast tumors.
The volunteers from Hope For Paws are followed in this awful movie as they work to relieve Pheenie of her loneliness. Pheenie finally realized that someone had come to save her in her old age, notwithstanding how challenging the process had been. She embraced her rescuers, a forlorn look on her face, but she was clearly relieved.
In order to accommodate Pheenie’s increasing medical needs, she was placed in a long-term foster care program. She lived in the expansive farm of her foster family for five lovely months, where she was happy, spoiled, and carefree, before passing away from old age. Pheenie’s final days were surrounded by unfathomable love despite her unlucky life of scarcity and isolation. Pheenie, may you rest in peace.
In the video below, you can see Pheenie’s harrowing escape from the junkyard and her comfortable last few days in foster care.
