Family Welcomes A New Member Terminally Ill St. Bernard

One thing you'll notice about Stroodle is that it's huge. It lives up to the expectations of the St. Bernard dynasty, as scales tend to be around 140 lbs. Everyone who sees it sees her physical stature perfectly proportional to the size of her heart. Cute, lovable, and cute, Stroodle is a big bear. This kind soul has suffered from some terrible facts that remind us not to surrender forever.


Stroodle lost her human

Stroodle has lived in her loving life with an old man throughout her life. Neighbors reported that the man was calm and disciplined, but everyone knew he loved his dog. When he unexpectedly died late this summer, neighbors suspected that someone would come directly to reach and take care of Stroodle. They were wrong.

As the days passed and nobody came from Stroudel, the neighbors gathered to take care of them together. Feed it, take it out and make it drink water. In the end, someone appeared, but did not take Stroodle.

Movers came to pack the house and leave Stroodle behind

One day, a moving truck appeared. The workers were busy filling the entire contents of the house. They took their furniture and packed their belongings. I filled up the truck while emptying the house. Imagine how confusing this would be to Strudel. she is gone. They removed all of her human origins from her home. It will definitely be taken soon, too.

After the house was vacated, the workers left. They let Stroudel stand on the street. Poisonous. When they learned that Stroodle had been abandoned, his neighbors handed him safely to SPCA Placer.

Diagnosed with Terminal Cancer

While living at the SPCA, someone found that Stroodle had a large lump. That lump turned out to be cancerous. Stroodle showed no signs of discomfort but the tumor is malignant and will ultimately lead to Stroodle’s demise. This wonderful bundle of love and comfort went from being a beloved companion to a homeless and terminally ill orphan. And it broke everyone’s heart.

The Placer SPCA Makes a Plea on Television

The  Placer SPCA  arranged for media coverage of Stroodle’s situation. The director spoke of how sweet tempered Stroodle was and how everyone at the shelter has fallen in love with her. They still recognized that they were making a pretty large request in asking someone to take on this big girl who only has months to live.


Stroodle Comes Home for the Holidays

Among the many people who saw the story of Stroodle, the Cotton family was unable to retreat. After talking candidly with young children about stroodel's health and life expectancy, the family agreed to visit her.

On Thanksgiving, the Cotton family went to look at Stroodle and knew she couldn't say no. Everyone fell in love and knew that in loving care, they had to take her home to live her entire life. The next day they did it.

At this festive time, we are very grateful to the cotton family for having their hearts and their Stroodle home broken. She will bring such joy and love to the whole family throughout her remaining days.
