Thanos, the unfortunate dog, faced a dire diagnosis when he was found to have cancer that had rapidly spread to his head, resulting in the prominent tumor depicted in the images.
Remarkably, Thanos had endured rejection from four different families due to his ailment. However, a compassionate Samaritan named Luciano Karosas stepped forward, opening his home to the ailing dog during the last few weeks of his life.
Prior to his adoption by 21-year-old Luciano, Thanos was known as Coconut, but his days were numbered as he battled the deadly tumor on his head. This heartwarming act of kindness allowed him to spend his final moments surrounded by love and care.
Luciano wanted to provide him unconditional affection throughout his final days on Earth.
When the 21-year-old visited the shelter, he was affected by the dog’s poignant narrative and decided right then and there to take him in and provide him with the most loving final weeks imaginable. “I came out with a piece of my heart in my palm,” he told Portal Amigo Cao.
Luciano was determined to make Thanos’ final days memorable, and he felt responsible for the health and happiness of his new pet. At first, he refused to understand that there was nothing he could do, so he did everything he could to preserve the animal. In a last-ditch effort to save the dog’s life, the 21-year-old went him to a veterinarian in the hopes that they could rescue him.
He elaborated: “I found it difficult to adjust to the fact that we will spend so little time together. I went him to a stem cell veterinarian to see what we could do to offer him a little more hope (he had been given 40 days to live) and was informed that there is no treatment that will prolong that time.”
Luciano and Thanos decided to make the most of their time together because the news was disheartening and there was nothing more they could do.
He showered as much attention on the dog as he could, and Thanos looked to be happier than he had ever been in the short time he spent with Luciano, even playing and cuddling with him like any other dog.
Thanos, as feared, succumbed to the dreadful sickness and died a few time afterwards. His adopted owner and all-around nice samaratin wished him a ‘happy voyage’ on social media and said, ‘I will love you forever.’
