A 15-year-old Labrador retriever had the misfortune to have been surrendered by her family on August 12 to the Carson Animal Care Center. As is so often the excuse, Jazzy’s former owners told shelter personnel they could no longer afford to care for their dog.Jazzy 15

Jazzy is friendly and gets along with other dogs, but she is not doing well in the shelter. Tragically Jazzy’s eyes display a defeated look; a reminder to everyone that dogs do feel the loneliness and separation when they are left behind. How long has this sweet dog lived with her fly bitten ears and the sores on her back?

Carson Shelter is located at 216 Victoria Street in Gardena, California.

RESCUED – moved to SAFE Album 08/18JAZZY is 15 and she was surrendered because her family couldn't afford her care anymore. Sh needs your help now, they said she likes kids and other dogs but she is not gong to do well in the shelter. Please SHARE for her life, she is VERY special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save her. Thanks!#A4299824 My name is JAZZY and I'm an approximately 15 year old female Labrador Retriever mix. I am already spayed. I have been at the Carson Animal Care Center since 8/12. I will be available on 8/12. You can visit me at my temporary home at C130.My former family who owned me for more than 5 years had to give me up because they couldn't afford the care I need. But they said that I spend most of my time outdoors, but it's not ideal. I seem to be good with small children. I have not been housetrained. I am good on a leash. I am just learning obedience skills. I seem to get along well with dogs. http://www.petharbor.com/pet.asp?uaid=LACO1.A4299824Carson Shelter, Gardena, California216 Victoria Street, Gardena, California310.523.9566, M-TH 12pm – 7pm, F-SU – 10am – 5pmPHOTO THREAD: https://www.facebook.com/savingcarsonshelterdogs/photos/a.172032662969376.1073741830.171850219654287/632537720252199/?type=3&theater

    And what kind of care does this dog need that the family suddenly can’t afford! Praying she finds her way out to a loving home!

    She’s so sweet. She wagged her tail when they called her by name. It looks like she’s been mistreated for quite some time. Poor baby.

    Praying someone finds it in their heart to give her a really nice place to lay her head down for whatever time she has left. The poor sweet soul.
    We adopted a 10 year old Lab and he is now 13 1/2 and he is an amazing boy.
