On Thursday, a handsome German shepherd named “Axel,” was surrendered to the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena, California. According to the Saving Carson Shelter Dogs Facebook page, the four-year-old shepherd has an injured leg and his prior owner felt that giving the dog up was the best option.
The post on Axel’s behalf describes the owner’s decision to surrender the German shepherd to the animal control agency, “His owner took him to the vet and was given meds but spent so much money he felt he had to give him up when he saw no improvement in his health. Captain Care came to his aid and sent him to the Vet but he was upset with the long line and decided to come back and surrender him anyway.”
Saving Carson Shelter Dogs added:
He is so special, good with everyone and other dogs and he is AVAILABLE NOW!!! He won’t do well in the Shelter!
Axel needs for someone to take a chance – someone who can get him to a veterinarian, patiently wait for an appointment and exam, and find out how to make this handsome boy feel better. Please help Axel find a rescue agency or adopter by taking a moment to share his adoption information.
