While visiting a shelter, Zach encountered an older dog who had been surrendered due to his cancer diagnosis. Refusing to let the senior pup die alone in the shelter, Zach made the compassionate decision to take him home. Initially, he had hoped to provide the 16-year-old dog, named Henry, with a few happy final days or weeks. However, Zach soon discovered that Henry had much more to offer than he had anticipated.
Initially, Henry the dog appeared to be in poor health, but the following day he exhibited a newfound energy and vitality. After scheduling to have the cancer removed, Henry began running and playing in the yard every day. Months later, the senior pup was thriving, and adoption applications started pouring in. It was time for Henry to embark on a new chapter in his life, surrounded by the love and care that he deserved.
