Do you know me? Elderly, 14-year-old dog at animal control

On August 6, an elderly dog, believed to be 14 years of age, was picked up as a stray and taken to the Baldwin Park Animal Services facility in California. The female Australian shepherd is now waiting in a kennel run – listening for a voice that she may know, amidst the drone of anxious, frightened dogs who are housed near her.

On Sunday, volunteer photographer Pat Gregoire posted a picture of the senior dog to Facebook, along with a few words, “14 yr old female gray/black Australian Shepherd mix came to the shelter as a stray on August 6. available 8/10/16. Right eye is clouded.”

This senior dog may have escaped through an open door, or an unlatched gate – somewhere, someone may be searching the streets, hoping to find their beloved companion. Please take a moment to share this photo, and adoption information, to help reunite this dog with her owner.

If nobody arrives to claim the elderly dog, she will become available for rescue or adoption on August 10.
