There isn't much of a description available for Coco, who is currently in the possession of the Miami-Dade County Animal Services, but his apparent condition and terrified stance are extremely disturbing to everyone who views his intake photo at the shelter.

Coco, listed as A1638788, was confiscated by Animal Control. The dog was spray painted green, and in the background of the photo is a broom with green bristles including green paint on the concrete slab.

Click here for the Facebook page where animal lovers and humane advocates question why Miami Dade County Animal Services personnel have not bathed the dog. Coco's description notes he was confiscated, and may be available for adoption on September 2.

Coco is described as a male, white Labrador retriever mix. Please share his story with all rescue organizations. Sharing saves lives. Pass this story on to your friends, family and relatives. Help make authorities aware that allowing any dog to remain in this condition is unacceptable.
