Update 12/27/13: Gina was rescued by Fighting for Dawn.

Gina, an elderly Shih Tzu, found herself without a family, or a home, on Christmas Eve after she was abandoned in the lobby of an animal services facility in Decatur, Ga.

Dekalb Rescue posted a photo of the senior dog, ID#A21738174, on Facebook the day after Christmas with the hopes that someone might be willing and able to lend Gina a helping hand.

Gina's fur is a bit unkempt...she looks as if she has seen better days, but nothing takes away from her need for a safe, loving home.

Interested in having this lovely, older dog join your family? Please contact the animal services facility at: (404) 294-2996
