A DYING dog was dumped by heartless owners outside a supermarket in the US.
Theo, a 12-year-old golden retriever who is “riddled” with terminal cancer, was found by rescuers Jenny and Scott outside a Walmart in Chicago.
After taking the poor old pooch to a local shelter, Jenny and Scott were heartbroken to discover Theo had just weeks to live, reports CBS Chicago.
The couple have since put the elderly dog into hospice care, with plans to make his last days on earth as comfortable as possible.
The hero couple have organised a number of doggy bucket list excursions for Theo, including a drive through burger and ice cream and lots of swimming in the pool.
Jenny and Scott have put together a fundraiser for the final few items on Theo’s bucket list, which feature a trip to the fire station and a ride in a boat.
Jenny also revealed Theo is excited for what might be his final playdate with another dog, scheduled for July 30.
Hundreds have pledged their support to the couple and Theo.
One of Theo’s smitten fans told the pair: “Thank you all doing all the great thing for the fur baby.”
Another added: “I will even stay by his side when it is time to so he won’t have to die alone!!”
