Canberra’s local Haley Austin revealed why the rescue dog Drake had to be left in the car while sneaking into the supermarket for five minutes.
When I returned from my five-minute trip to the supermarket, an angry letter rattled after I found a local in Canberra attached to the windshield of a car.
Haley Austin returned to a nasty note telling her that her dog, Drake, she left in her car wasn’t worth it while she sneaked into Westfield Belconnen Mall for infant formula.
“I reported that I left my dog in the car. There are also pictures. You don’t deserve such a good dog,” I read a handwritten letter planted Thursday morning.
But what the author didn’t know was that it was dangerous to leave it for more than 20 minutes because Drake suffered from a serious combination of medical conditions.
The 4-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier, rescued by Ms. Austin in April, lives with severe anxiety and seizures that she said were unpredictable.
“Drake causes epileptic seizures and bubbling in the mouth, and depending on the severity, it can cause epileptic seizures,” Austin told news.com.au.
“His seizures last everywhere for 10 to 15 minutes, yet he can’t come properly for another 30 minutes after that.”
She added that the seizures occurred about once a month, but the warning “no signs of a story.”
Ms. Austin, a special needs dog, said Drake needed a full-time supervision.
“Drake isn’t a game enough to leave my side and test the theory. He’s a very stubborn boy with a beautiful personality that doesn’t hurt flies. He needs another chance in life.” She said.
She admitted that the author of the letter wanted to help Drake, but she wished they had done the situation differently.
“I hope you talked to me to get to know the situation with him before I decided it was very bad,” she said.
“I don’t want to leave the house again.”
Austin was in the process of registering Drake as a service animal, but said an anxiety-induced bowel accident made the process difficult.
