On Nov. 5, an emaciated, Labrador retriever mix arrived to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Lancaster, Calif.
The two-year-old dog, whose name is not known, remains unclaimed nearly two months later.
According to David Bloom, Public Information Officer for the facility, this dog's "due out" date was Dec. 17, but that date was recently extended; the dog, ID#A4650269, is currently being treated for an upper respiratory infection.
Notes from staff members who evaluated this young dog state:
This is a dog that is highly adoptable but may need obedience training, additional socialization, or minor behavior modification. This dog is highly adoptable.
Dog eats food very fast and keeps nose deep in bowl. Dog was very skinny when he came in which could attribute to this behavior.
In order for this dog to have any hope of a safe, happy future, his information needs to be networked...as it stands, he has been incarcerated for nearly two months and nobody has expressed a true interest to offer him a home.
