Update 10/30/13: Rescued! Click here to read more.
Ten days ago, a seven-year-old German shepherd mix was left at the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control facility in Baldwin Park, Calif.
During his stay, the depressed dog has shut down, and given up.
Following a visit to the dog's kennel run, a volunteer wrote:
He has shut down. Wouldn't respond at all or acknowledge.
The dog, name unknown, may not know exactly how dire his situation is, but he does know that he is alone, and in an unfamiliar place; he knows that after this length of time, the people that he once knew, are not coming back to take him home.
Please take a moment to network on this dog's behalf - he does not have much time.
