Stunning German shepherd sits and stares from kennel of high kill shelter

Lady Bird is a beautiful black and tan German shepherd who appeared to be well-cared for; that is until her previous owner turned the four-year-old over to San Bernardino City Animal Control on June 11. Unfortunately, the shelter offers no information as to Lady Bird's past or even her disposition.

A PetHarbor listing for Lady Bird, who has now been reduced to ID# A167204 can be seen by clicking here.

Volunteers worry that Lady Bird will never walk out the front door; she has been placed in a kennel where few visitors ever pass. Even worse, this heartbroken dog just stares out from behind the bars of her prison as if her human will appear at any moment. Lady Bird doesn't bark nor will she even wag her tail. No one ever comes.

If anyone still denies that purebred dogs are not found at city animal shelters, just look at Lady Bird.

Follow Lady Bird's plight on Facebook as humane advocates try their best to share her photo and help to find this beautiful dog a new home, rescue organization, or foster. Please click here. A volunteer writes:

Super urgent! She is low energy and quiet... Probably sad and missing her family. She sits there, no barks, no wagging tails... Just sad she is stunning!"
