There are those who cherish their furry companions through thick and thin. There are also individuals who only take in pets for the purpose of amusement and then discard them mercilessly once they become less useful. It’s difficult to fathom, but these callous people can be found all over the globe.

Once upon a time, there was a German shepherd who had a family that he believed he belonged to. Sadly, his family abandoned him when he became old and paralyzed. They treated him no better than trash. The senior dog was left alone in their old house. He suffered from various health issues and a broken heart after they moved away.

Thankfully, Gianna Serena Manfredi and other kind volunteers from the Qua La Zampa Association found him near Bitonto, Bari, Italy and named him Heart.

Despite his spinal and ear problems, as well as the paralysis in his hind legs, Heart remained strong and independent. He was a fighter. To ensure that he received the love and care he deserved, Gianna and a group of women formed “The Remote Mothers” to take turns looking after him. Heart was grateful for the love he received in his final days, but unfortunately, this happiness was short-lived, as he could only spend one year with them.

As his final moments approached, Gianna made the decision to join him on his last journey to the ocean. The experience was nothing short of incredible.

Gianna wrote about her experience at the sea, describing it as beautiful. She felt the wind caressing her ears and the waves beating against the rocks. The sound of the sea provided a peaceful atmosphere in the stillness of winter. Gianna found the experience to be very relaxing and almost fell asleep, forgetting about the pain of being abandoned by those who loved her little, the physical pains she was feeling, and the pain of not being able to run with a puppy chasing a stone.
