Cocas belonged to a football player who lived on his farm. He had a female cocker spaniel in the kennel. He moved out, he rented his farm and he left the spaniel behind in the kennel.
She was old and completely blind. It was a small kennel, with walls and only a small opening for the door. Hardly any light.
For a 1,5 year the people that rented a farm left food and water in the kennel. They did not clean. They never interacted with the dog. She was never out of that kennel. They did not know her name and they did not care.
Her luck changed when those people employed someone to help out on the farm. This person saw the dog in a small kennel floating in the dog poo. He asked if he could take her. They said yes. He brought her to the shelter.
