Betrayed, owner reclaims one dog, leaving the other pup behind at animal control

A sweet, boxer mix pup is waiting for someone to notice her at the Brevard County Animal Services facility in Melbourne, Fla.

The dog, named "Dawn," was taken in at the facility on Feb. 7 - at the time, she came in with another dog.

The day that Dawn's owner showed up to the animal control facility should have been a joyous one...but it was not. The person took the other dog home and surrendered Dawn, leaving her behind, and at risk.

On Thursday, Coastal Boxer Rescue shared this about Dawn:

She's a mix but looks more boxer in person. She is sooo sweet and just wants to crawl in your lap and bury her head. She's terrified at the shelter and just wants to be with people. She is an owner surrender and is good with other dogs. She was found with a sibling but the owner took him back and left her!!

Please take a moment to network on Dawn's behalf - she was betrayed by her former owner and deserves the chance to join a family who would never think of doing that to her again.
