UPDATE: Now named Dolly, this lucky dog has been adopted, is out of the shelter, and reported to be doing very well. She is eating, drinking and even napping. Thank you everyone for helping to save another precious life.

A German shepherd mixed breed lies very frightened in the corner of a kennel at California's high kill rate Baldwin Park Animal Shelter with her paws bandaged. For months it was reported this poor dog had been living on the streets and fed by Good Samaritans. No one had been able to catch her.

Animal Control eventually succeeded and now she is in danger of being euthanized. It has been alleged that her paws were injured as Animal Control officers attempted to capture her.

Humane advocates have been deeply concerned since her plight became public on Tuesday, July 8. Follow the Facebook thread by clicking here.

According to her brief intake records, she is categorized as a female, German shepherd and Chow mix. Please refer to #A472921.

Baldwin Park Shelter is open for adoptions seven days a week. The facility is located at 4275 Elton Street, Baldwin Park, California 91706.
