His name is Chip, and this adorable black and white Shih Tzu was surrendered by his owner to the high kill Miami-Dade Animal Services. Barely one-year-old, there were no reasons given for his surrender, but that makes little difference to Chip.
Surrendered dogs can be euthanized at anytime.
Urgent Dogs of Miami, a networking site run by volunteers, are trying their best to find a foster facility or home for Chip before his young life is snuffed out. Obviously, his previous irresponsible owners never took the time to train this little guy or they just lost interest.
Puppies don't arrive with perfect manners; it is up to all of us to help these dogs become great canine citizens.
Chip's photo and story have been shared 66 times, but as of this Tuesday morning, there have yet been no rescue commitments.
