Update 8/27/13: Westside German Shepherd Rescue has rescued this dog. She will be in foster care soon!
On August 19, an un-named German shepherd was picked up as a stray and taken to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control in Lancaster, Calif.
Though the gorgeous, purebred female obviously had an owner - that person never came to claim her.
Now, ID#A4621207 is at risk, along with the hundreds of other homeless dogs who are currently housed at this facility.
The following, sad information was shared about this beautiful dog:
A volunteer tried to give her and her kennel mate a cookie and her kennel mate beat her up and took the cookie from her. This poor girl was devastated, never fought back.
In order for this dog to have the chance to live out the rest of her life as a beloved companion, she needs the help of strangers who are willing to take a moment out of their day to share her information, which will increase her odds for rescue or adoption.
