Senior German shepherd at California animal control

Update 2/19/14: Coastal German Shepherd Rescue is going to pull Dixie!

Growing old can be hard...aching muscles, tired bones and weary eyes can make everyday life difficult.

Aging dogs who enjoy the company of a loving guardian are able to enjoy their senior years with the help of good veterinary care, soft beds and comfortable surroundings.

Imagine, for a moment, a senior dog without those comforts...a dog who has nothing familiar to gaze upon, no loving voices to listen to and a lonely kennel run without a special, cozy bed.

Since Feb. 2, a 12-year-old German shepherd named "Dixie," has been calling a kennel run at the Long Beach Animal Care Services facility in Calif., "home."

The intake photo of Dixie shows a dog who is confused and afraid...her ears are back and her eyes are downcast and sad. Dixie is not with her family...she is not in her home.

For 15 days, Dixie has been without the people and the things, that she knows and loves.

Please take a moment to network on Dixie's behalf:
