Dog sleeps on streets for 11 years, then wakes from nap to find whole world changed
Dog sleeps on streets for 11 years, then wakes from nap to find whole world changed. For a dog living on the streets, life is tough. These strays must be agile and street savvy. One dog managed to survive for over 11 years on his own as a stray on the streets of Los Angeles, but, as often happens when dogs age, he began to slow down.
This poor pooch became exhausted and ill. He took refuge on the porch of a stranger’s home, curling up to take a nap and hoping a kind person lived there. Thankfully, he picked the right house. The woman who found him didn’t banish him. She took him in and named him Solovino, which in Spanish means, “he who came alone.”
When Carol Messina read Solovino’s sad story online, she immediately fell in love with the old boy and decided to adopt him. A life-long Star Wars fan, she shortened his name to Solo.
