Update 9/16/13: This dog has been rescued! The following was received from Leave No Paws Behind on Monday evening:
Just wanted to let you know that we have placed our loving paw prints on her and she is SAFE!
A five-year-old Maltese mix arrived to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Lancaster, Calif., on Sept. 7.
The dog, whose name is not known, appears to be in poor health.
Her fur is thin and unkempt, and her body appears to be malnourished.
For nine days, the dog has been housed at the facility, and nobody has stepped forward to claim her as their own.
Please take a moment to network on behalf of this homeless dog - due to her poor state of health, a local adopter or rescue agency is necessary as it would not be safe to transport her in this condition.
