Even beautiful dogs wind up at high kill shelters

What is a magnificent looking dog with cobalt blue eyes and lush white coat doing in the extremely overcrowded California Baldwin Park Animal Shelter? His registration card states he is an Alaskan malamute and Siberian husky blend, and he's barely a teenager at only two years of age. He's been well-cared for and has also been neutered.

A volunteer who met him states this:

"He's adorable!! I told him to sit and he did - then gave me his paw."

Stark, as he has been named, is super friendly, and although he will not be available for adoption until August 20, this is a dog you might want to keep an eye on if you're in the market for super friendly, beautiful and obviously very intelligent.

Stark was picked up as a stray on August 9; his family still has time to claim him, but why are they taking so long?

Approximately 25% of dogs entering into U.S. shelters every year are purebreds; even more are strikingly beautiful mixes with wonderful dispositions and full lives to live, yet even the best bred and sweetest are euthanized due to overcrowded conditions. Please don't shop when you can adopt.
