After being deserted and enduring misery for almost a decade, a dog has been granted the opportunity to improve its quality of life during its last days.
Pheenie, the lovable nickname given to Josephine, was left behind by her owner who was deported. With no one to care for her, she found safety behind a shipping container in a scrapyard. Despite harsh weather conditions and minimal protection, Pheenie managed to survive on scraps and leftovers given to her by kind locals for nine years. However, her luck finally ran out, and she eventually faced the consequences of her abandonment.
As Pheenie advanced into her golden years, her physical well-being took a turn for the worse due to prolonged disregard and anxiety. A truck collision had caused her to lose her right eye, and she had also contracted a spinal cord infection. Moreover, her dental hygiene was far from satisfactory, and she was grappling with both a urinary tract infection and excruciating growths in her breasts.
The plot of this terrible film follows the efforts of the Hope For Paws volunteers as they set out to rescue Pheenie from a life of loneliness. Despite encountering several obstacles during their journey, they eventually succeeded in reaching Pheenie and offering her the help she desperately needed. Her relief and happiness at being rescued were evident as she embraced her saviors with gratitude, although the years of isolation had taken their toll on her expression.
Pheenie found a permanent home in a foster program that provided for her medical needs. She spent five months living a joyful and comfortable life on a large farm until she passed away from old age. Despite her past struggles with isolation, Pheenie was surrounded by love during her last days. Let’s bid farewell to Pheenie as she rests in peace.
