Unsure if Caro would survive medical treatment, Turner made a habit of checking in — but the dog could barely move.
“During the week Caro was at the vet, I visited and checked on him daily,” Turner said. “The techs were always very excited about the littlest things — 'He lifted his head up today,' 'He walked to the other side of his kennel today,' 'He was able to eat solid food today.' It was heartbreaking.”
Despite how little Caro could interact with his surroundings, Turner found herself growing attached to the sick little dog. She decided that, once Caro left the vet, she would foster him until he regained his strength.
