On Jan. 29, a young German shepherd mix was impounded at the Lancaster, Calif., Animal Care and Control facility.
The two-year-old dog's intake photo speaks volumes.
A dog who is terrified.
A dog who is confused.
A dog who wants to hide from the world.
A dog who needs out.
This particular dog is one of several who were taken in from a hoarding situation.
Unfortunately for this dog, ID# A4538008, while the others found their way to a rescue organization, he did not.
Make no mistake, the same intuition which allows your dog to mysteriously know when you are almost home, or lets them anticipate a walk (before you even say anything), is telling this dog that he is in danger.
Please take a moment to network for this young male. Terrified dogs do not last long in animal control facilities, nor do they show well on the adoption floor.
