German shepherds are well-known for their intuitive nature and the dog in this photo seems to know that this Los Angeles County, Calif., animal control facility is not a safe place to be.
German shepherds are also known to be particularly difficult candidates for adoption at animal control facilities. It is not uncommon for this breed of dog to be either shut down in this type of setting, or reactive to people who approach their kennel run.
Either response tends to ward off potential adopters.
This gorgeous girl is in need of some help if she is to leave the facility alive. She is listed as a three-year-old dog, but there is no name, only her number, A4549512.
Unfortunately, there is no other information...nothing to tempt a would-be adopter or rescue to want this beautiful dog.
Nothing to indicate if she adores chasing after a tennis ball or prefers to fly after a Frisbee.
All that is truly known is that she is scared, confused and in need of assistance.
