UPDATE: Dallas has been reclaimed by his family. The couple came back for him. Thank you everyone for sending out his story. Dallas was ecstatic when he spotted his humans.
A sweet and timid pit bull mix sits alone in his shelter kennel at the high kill San Bernardino Animal Care and Control. The three-year-old used to have a home, but his family moved and decided they couldn't take Dallas with them.
No one has ever told Dallas he will never see his family again; Dallas cries in his cage from loneliness and despair.
When finally a volunteer was able to meet Dallas and give him some one on one affection and a few delicious treats, the dog's heart smiled; this boy needs a new home with a loving human now.
Dallas' sweet nature has really affected many of the volunteers. One rescuer stated:
"His kennel location is right in the front where we videotape other dogs, so he is always watching us...so sad. His eyes are really sad eyes...it is horrible. It is a knife in my heart that I can't take him out for a little bit."
Tragically, just because of red tape and shelter policies for confiscated dogs, Dallas is being held for 14 days. At that time, on March 6, he will be available for adoption. After that date, Dallas could be euthanized at anytime.
Please refer to ID#A461433. The San Bernardino City Animal Control is located at 333 Chandler Place, San Bernardino, California. Phone: (909)-384-1304.
Dallas has very few shares. Please share his story with your friends, family, and coworkers. Help Dallas walk out the front door to live happily ever after.
