On April 22, Syrus, a three-year-old Rottweiler, was left at the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif.
Unfortunately, what happened to this handsome boy is not unusual - everyday, dogs are surrendered to animal control facilities for any number of reasons. But for Syrus, this is unusual - he is now living in an unfamiliar kennel run away from anything and everything that he ever knew.
Syrus has the sad eyes of a bewildered dog who is confused about his upside-down life which is now devoid of familiar faces and voices.
Syrus is in a building where he is not in the public view - according to a volunteer, staff have designated him "rescue only" because he has shown signs of aggression. Despite their declaration, the volunteer has personally met this dog on more than one occasion and described him as "very friendly."
Regardless of what Syrus appears to be like, he must go to a rescue agency.
Please take a moment to network Syrus' information with the hopes that a rescue agency will be aware that he is at the facility, and hopefully, be able to offer him a safe place to go.
