Update 8/15/14: Domino has been rescued by Crossroads Shih Tzu Rescue.
On Thursday, the Chicago Animal Care and Control Transfer Team posted an urgent request for a terrified dog who has been surrendered to the high-intake animal control facility in Illinois.
Dog owners who decide to get rid of their companion provide a variety of reasons for the surrender of their pet...from the generic "allergies," or "moving," to the bizarre "does not match our furniture." In this frightened dog's case, the owner was blunt...they simply told the facility that they no longer wanted the little dog whose name is "Domino.'
Specifically, the post reads:
SHAKING and TERRIFIED in cage=( Please come eval this dog.
“owner” says dog has fleas and skin rashes. Good with children, dogs, and cats Lived with kids 10, 14 and 17 “don’t want him anymore”
Domino has lost his home and his family - he is sitting alone in a stark kennel run where he is surrounded by the barks, howls and cries of other distressed and frightened dogs. Suffice to say, Domino is scared and confused.
Please take a moment to network on Domino's behalf.
