UPDATE: Rumble has left the building. Many thanks to everyone who helped to spread the story of this beautiful dog. Sharing saves lives. For an updated photo of Rumble, please visit the National Pet Examiner Facebook page by clicking here.

Easy going Rumble has no idea why he has been separated from the only home he has ever known. Easy going Rumble has no idea why he is a terrified prisoner in a kennel with other barking and scared dogs. Easy going Rumble has no idea he is on Saturday's list to be euthanized because he's an owner surrender, he's a senior and no one is interested in him.

Try to explain to a dog whose life revolved around his family who suddenly swept him away, that he is yesterday's trash. And what were his former owner's parting words to a dog that had most likely slept in their bed or nibbled food from their fingers? Sadly only nine words summed up their feelings towards their dog:

"He's too old and we no longer want him."

Rumble was surrendered on July 10, and his exit date was listed as July 14. (Owners are given a few days to change their minds) The extremely depressed pooch sits in C342 waiting for his family to return.
