On Tuesday, the cutest one-year-old puppy was left at the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter sadly watching his family as they walked away. Known as the busiest time of the year for shelters, too often irresponsible owners surrender their pets before leaving on vacation. Will they then be back in the fall before school starts to adopt another dog?
Wolfie, an unaltered buff coated terrier mix, knows something is wrong. Although just a youngster, his facial expression reflects the sadness and heartbreak he feels as he cannot comprehend being abandoned. Surrendered dogs do not have a required holding period and may be euthanized at anytime depending on overcrowded conditions, health and demeanor.
