Heartbreaking video of ultra-friendly dog sitting at animal control

On Jan. 13, "Cider," a young, Dogue de Bordeaux mix, arrived as a stray to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif.

The one-year-old dog, who is said to be "adorably affectionate" belonged to someone at some point in time as evidenced by the fact that he is neutered.

Whoever Cider belonged to has not arrived to the facility to reclaim him - in just one week from today, Cider will have been incarcerated, like a common criminal, for a full month.

Unlike Ginger, the four-year-old pit bull mix who was surrendered to the animal control facility in San Bernardino, Calif., last Saturday, there is no heartbreaking video of Cider to tug at the heartstrings of would-be networkers.

Ginger's sad video garnered interest from well over 60,000 people...without a video of his own, Cider has but a handful of people who appear to be concerned about his future.

The only thing that Cider has is a touching photo which reveals imploring eyes which seem to be begging for help.

Please take a moment to network on Cider's behalf. He is a young dog who is friendly enough that he has managed to be held for a considerable length of time at the animal control facility - but he will not be held there forever.
