yeah I doubt the age too . Undocumented , age has a way of telescoping . But that is beside the point.

Instead of tarring and feathering these people who had to give up the dog , a "humane" society would enable them , to keep the dog in its (her/his) familiar surroundings , well fed and vet attention as needed.
That vet care includes the final visit , euthanasia and care of the remains, which could add up to 4 to 5 hundred $$$. If the family is financially distressed that means a lot !
The dog looks old but well cared for .
I am sure it wasn't easy for the people. They at least gave her an opportunity by placing her in a shelter .
Heartbreaking .

this is almost schadenfreude , which is taking advantage of and enjoying other peoples misfortune.

give the people who have her vouchers for dog food or whatever .

I would contribute .
