RIP Xavi

Accion del Sol news

EVERY dog at the refuge is special, but, occasionally, one stands out from all the rest. A Rottweiler was found wandering around the streets of Guia de Isora, and we named him Crash.

When he underwent his initial health checks, it became clear that he had health issues. He started to have epileptic seizures, and had to be put on medication to prevent the fits.

We knew that we would not be able to have him adopted, because of his issues, but we were very lucky to be able to foster him to a lovely couple, who are big supporters of Accion del Sol.

They changed his name to Xavi, and he had a wonderful two and a half years of being loved and cared for, and his epileptic seizures had almost stopped.

Last week, they were devastated when he finally died of old age, but at least he had a very happy and special time, knowing that he was loved, to the end.

It’s always devastingly sad to lose our pets, but the love they give, during their time with you, is completely unconditional, and we can cherish the memories they leave behind.
