Downey pound pooch beyond terrified and depressed: Rescue needed

See also

This little mop head has been named Honeypie, but Downey Animal Care Center located in Downey, Calif. has not identified the dog's gender nor even bathed her; just to see her face and give her a chance to be adopted.

The dog's heartbreaking photo has humane advocates guessing if the dog is a poodle or a soft-coated Wheaton terrier, but in the meantime, Honeypie has given up; her head and face curled into the corner of Kennel D613.

"It's unforgivable to present any dog like this to the public for adoption or rescue," stated a woman posting on Honeypie's Facebook page as volunteers and animal lovers pledge donations to a qualified rescue organization to save the two-year-old pup. "This dog has been in the shelter since June 26, and nobody could determine its sex or given this dog the minimum of care?"
