This gentle black Labrador retriever has beat the odds, but there's no happy solution in a high kill shelter until a rescued dog is safely out of the building. When this nine-year-old male was brought into the shelter, his back legs were very stiff; most likely from arthritis, and he was infested with ticks. A volunteer offers this information:
"They removed the ticks, but spending this long in the kennel has caused him to have even more difficulty getting up around. He is in the back observation area and doesn't get seen by the public. He is extremely special, please take another look at this sweet senior and share. The shelter is full and he needs out now. "

Look how happy this senior looks; imagine this guy making the best out of a less than desirable situation, but nevertheless he's such a sweet old guy who deserves a soft bed to cuddle in and a gentle hand to pat him lovingly on his beautiful head.
A video is available by clicking here. Notice how gentle and sweet this boy presents himself. Shame on the shelter for not even giving him a name. At the very least, he deserves that dignity. Please note how depressed he looks now as compared to the smiling demeanor when he first arrived at the end of June. How can someone not want to save this boy and give him the luxury of spending his remaining time living happily ever after?
Please share his story with your friends, family and coworkers. Forward his story; it only takes a moment, and perhaps someone will look into his eyes with his graying muzzle and decide to help.
