Dad Who Lost Two Dogs Over Tough Few Years Surprised With Puppy
A dad who loves beagle dogs because they have helped him through depression was given an emotional surprise when his family surprised him with a new puppy. Glen Mahoney, 59, had been through a tough few years, having lost his previous dogs and continuing to suffer from a series of long-term health issues. Glen has struggled with cystitis for 32 years and had to have his bladder completely removed; he has diabetes, which led to the amputation of one of his legs below the knee; and he also battled prostate cancer. After numerous surgeries, Glen was left unable to work, causing him to struggle at home with depression. That was when his family decided to get him his first beagle puppy, and since then he has also adopted four rescued adult beagles. On August 28, Amanda, her mom and son headed out for the morning, telling Glen they were going to pick up something they had purchased online for Amanda's son. When they returned, Glen was called to his backyard on his birthday, where he was met by his new puppy, Phoebe, who was walking around on the grass.
