Final Phoenix Update

Today I am posting the final update for Phoenix, the Chow. To see my previous posts about Phoenix, read them in order to get the full story's events:

Here is the update about Phoenix from the Humane Society of Durham Region:

October 5, 2009

On October 2, 2009 Phoenix passed away peacefully, surrounded by the people who loved him most. In the two days prior he had stopped wanting to eat, spent most of his time sleeping and showed little interest in the things that had been giving him joy.

At his scheduled vet appointment on Friday it was decided that the time had come to put him down. His foster parents Tracy and Mike, Debby Houghton the investigator on his case and Ruby Richards, the shelter manager were all with him at the end giving him hugs and kisses.
Special thanks go to the clinic staff who spent so much time working with him and who were in tears at his passing. Thanks also go to the public for all of their support for him during the past few months.

Thanks also to all the media for their help in getting his story out to the public.

We are still looking for leads in his case.If anyone has anything that might be pertinent to this case please call Debby Houghton at 905-433-2022 ext. 2.

Poor baby. Yet he is luckier than a lot of abused animals because at the end, he knew love. God speed Phoenix.

poor guy...I am only glad, that he received the love that all dogs deserve, for at least a little while. He's got to be in a better place, now.

I'm glad he was cared for and loved in his final days. Life sure does suck some times. :(

Sorry, should have happened sooner.

Not surprised to hear he died.

Now, if the owner could be found, I'd have a few words for them.

Aw. I missed the first updates, and after seeing the final I almost don't want to read them. :(

It's so good to know that he was loved and cared for like he deserved -- for as long as he could be. RIP Phoenix.

Phoenix's story just broke my heart. I was so upset to hear on the news that he passed, but no doubt he's being loved and looked after where he is now. Poor baby.
