Taylor is a beautiful and very friendly 16-month-old blue pit bull mix who has had the misfortune to wind up in Kennel 32 at the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter. Here, the euthanasia rates for any dogs resembling terriers - no matter how sweet their dispositions or how great their health, are extremely high; they die too soon.
On Taylor's first outing, she had to be gently coaxed out of her kennel; curled up in the rear of her tiny prison, she just shook in fear. When the shy, mellow pooch figured out that her human companions were friendly, she relaxed; her face filled with a smile as she generously offered her sloppy kisses of gratitude.
Taylor isn't safe. Wednesday is stated to be her "due out" date.
Her almond eyes plead, "please take me out of here. I want to see tomorrow with someone just like you."
The following are several videos recorded to show how well Taylor gets along with other dogs and the volunteers. Please share Taylor's story with your friends, family, and coworkers. Sharing saves lives.
