Bruce used to be someone’s friend, someone’s partner and someone’s companion. The Rottweiler was found abandoned on a street in Miami and brought to Miami-Dade Animal Services. The staff and volunteers were brought to tears as Bruce needed help to return to his kennel cage; he just didn’t want to stand up and walk. Craving attention from anyone close by, he has been described as very loving and very friendly – sadly he seems to have given up. While in his kennel he cries, as if hoping his family will hear his plea and rescue him. Perhaps there just ought to be stricter laws protecting dogs against such emotional abuse?
Click here for Bruce’s Pet Harbor listing. “I am an unaltered male, black and brown Rottweiler. The shelter staff think I am about 6 years old. I have been at the shelter since Dec 14, 2016.” For more information about this animal, call Miami-Dade Animal Services at (305) 884-1101. Ask for information about animal ID number A1837765.
“Bruce is very sick and lethargic and as you can see, he’s too ill to even walk on his own. This poor angel was picked up as a stray and who knows how much he suffered on the streets to end up this way? He most likely had a family and like many dogs in Miami, ended up on the streets, discarded, abandoned and unwanted,” has been posted on the Urgent Dogs of Miami Facebook hoping to find a rescue organization to help.
A volunteer told his story on Saturday:
“Rottie angel in need will die tomorrow because he has given up !
Shelter sent out a plea for his life !!!
He is very sweet .. and sleeps long hours dreaming that his family will take him home .. he howls in seeking attention !!!
He loves belly rubs .. he’s very sweet.
Volunteer favorite !!!
Let’s share him far and wide !!!”
Share Bruce’s plight with approved rescue organizations, family, friends and social media contacts. This dog will be euthanized on Monday if a rescue isn’t procured. Advocates have been pledging funds to help with his medical needs. More information can be found on his Facebook page. We are his only hope. Sharing saves lives.
