Family Adopts Dog Dying From Cancer, Helps Him Live Out His Dreams In Final Days

It takes a special person to take in a sick dog who doesn’t have much time left to live, but Jenny Leech did it without hesitation.

12-year-old Theo was abandoned and in bad shape when someone found him in a Walmart parking lot.

Sadly, he was diagnosed with cancer and the oncologist believes he doesn’t have much time left on Earth, as the cancer nodules are spread throughout his abdomen.

Despite the bad news, Leech and her husband took Theo in and promised to make every day he has left, the best it can be.

When Leech saw how happy Theo still was and realized that the cancer has not slowed him down, she decided to come up with a bucket list for him.

So far he has eaten ice cream, gotten a burger at a drive-thru, and chewed on a fresh bone from a butcher shop, among many other things.

Leech began posting his bucket list adventures on Facebook, which quickly went viral.

Thousands of people were giving Leech new ideas, and some even helped cross items off his list, including one person who took Theo for a ride in their Mustang convertible!

Since then, he has sat in a skydive plane, went swimming in a lake, watched a drive-in movie, gone on a blind date with a German Shepherd named Sasha, and got sworn in as an honorary police K9 at the Crystal Lake Police Department.

A new item on his bucket list has been crossed off daily, and Leech will continue to bring Theo joy until his final day.
