An incredible dog has been sitting at the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Downey, Calif., since the end of April.

Despite Ernestine's many wonderful attributes, nobody has indicated a desire to adopt her, or pull her into the safety of a rescue organization. Today, weeks later, her time is running short and if nobody is found soon, her life may be prematurely cut short.

Volunteers at the facility have praised this incredible dog's personality...she has been described as "super affectionate," and it has been noted that she loves to give kisses. Ernestine appears to be well-socialized and well-behaved...she walks nicely on a leash and she loves to cuddle.

When Ernestine's time runs out, no matter how incredible she is, she will be put down. Please take a moment to network this seven-year-old dog's information and help her find the one person out there who is in the position to save her life.
