Loyal Pooch Keeps Company with His Ailing Equine Mate Until the Very End.

Martn Miranda and his family are heroes for rescuing eleven dogs, one of whom was named Forastero. They also saved a horse named Canario who was supposed to be sent to a zoo to be food for the lions. Despite Canario’s severe illness, Forastero never left his side until he passed away.

The family, who had a history of rescuing animals, faced a difficult decision when they came across a weak and helpless Canary. Although the bird was not strong enough to stand on its own, they still wanted to try and save it. They couldn’t bear the thought of letting yet another animal perish, having previously rescued chickens, bunnies, and dogs.

For a span of five months, Canario resided with Martin’s family. Unfortunately, his state did not improve despite the length of time spent there. In fact, Canario’s condition worsened to the extent that he was unable to stand upright without any support.

A different organization called Volunteers for Our Horses (VPN) reached out to the members of Ayuda a Caballos Maltratados (ACMA) in Argentina regarding a horse that was lying on the ground and couldn’t get up.

The equine in question was missing its pearly whites, appeared to be quite ancient and fatigued, had consumed its own skeletal structure, and showcased other common signs of aging in horses.

In that particular instance, the veterinarian in Corse came to the realization that the situation at hand was unlike the regular cases of horse abuse that were common in the area. Horses were often treated harshly like racehorses until they succumbed to exhaustion. However, in this scenario, Canary was dying and immobile. Thus, the doctor administered a sedative injection to ease his suffering and grant him some relief from his agony.

The family was taken aback upon discovering that the Canary had been given up, but they quickly realized that the horse they had presumed to be young and unwell was, in fact, an aged animal seeking peace.
