The face of utter hopelessness – stray dog in need

Spread the love

Meet ID#A4987245 – a dog with no known name, a dog without hope. This dog, picked up as a stray on August 27 and taken to the Carson Animal Services facility in California, has the face of utter hopelessness.

He may not know exactly how dire his predicament is, but he appears to know, at the very least, the the situation is bad. This four-year-old dog is surrounded by the cries and barks of other dogs who are scared and confused – the smells in this animal control agency are unfamiliar, as are the voices and faces.

Little, if anything, can be found in this dog’s current environment to assure him that things will be okay – and truth be known, if help does not come in time, things will not be okay.

Please help ID#4987245 find a reason to hope – a reason to way his tail – a reason to be happy, by sharing his adoption information.

  1. Please read this article about this sad little fella. He doesn’t even have a name! Because of his breed, he needs a temperament test. This needs to be requested IN PERSON. He can be destroyed ANYTIME without it. He has a few pages and pledges, but no foster home. Without a foster home, no rescue group will pull him from the shelter. Someone down in the L.A. area needs to request the temperament test and open their hearts and home for this sweet nameless fella. Don’t let him be just another number on the euthanized lit, save his life. Please.
