Sometimes, the perfect dog for a person is a dog they didn’t expect. Frank Reyes knew he wanted to adopt a dog at some point, but when someone introduced him to an abandoned Pit Bull, he hesitated because of harmful stereotypes. that he heard. But he decided to give the puppy a chance.
The Pit Bull, later named Sinatra, was abandoned at a pet store. Despite her heartbreaking past, Sinatra is ultimately filled with love. Reyes cannot deny the special bond between him and the puppy. It means!
Dumping outside the store
Sinatra’s former men show up at a local pet store and demand his release. Staff explained that they are a supply store and not a shelter. Instead of taking Sinatra to a shelter or rescue, the owners tied him to a cart back outside the store, and abandoned him.
When Reyes arrived at the veterinary hospital where Sinatra was being held, he became worried when the large dog ran towards him. But once Sinatra got close enough, he rolled on his back asking for a belly rub. At that point, Reyes knew that they wanted to be best friends.
“It has been challenging and difficult working with him and getting to know him. But once it happened, he was my right hand man,” Reyes said.
Sinatra loved to eat, so Reyes worked out. In the end, he got the gentle dog to be patient with the food and complete other tricks. Sinatra ended up being the companion Reyes needed in life.
A long, meaningful life
Thanks to Reyes’ kind heart, Sinatra had a wonderful life. The two spent 11 years together, where they spent countless times cuddling, playing, and going on adventures.
Reyes said: “He was my first dog, and he was my first and only dog.
Around the age of 13, Sinatra began to slow down and not function well. He didn’t eat, and he began to lose serious weight. Reyes tried everything to save him, but it was time for Sinatra to cross the rainbow bridge. A few days before Sinatra’s death, the puppy went out to look at the rainbow as if to tell his father that it was time.
Losing Sinatra was one of the hardest moments of Reyes’ life, but he was grateful that they had so many great years together. He even got a tattoo in honor of the dog. Now, Reyes is helping raise a Pit Bull named Bowser because he knows that love can dramatically change a rescue dog’s life.
Rest in peace, Sinatra. You were so loved!
