Update: According to United Hope for Animals, Sandy has been rescued!
A young German shepherd at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in California is miserable. The dog arrived to the open-intake facility in late October after being hit by a car.
According to staff and volunteers, the dog, dubbed “Sandy,” is miserable. On November 5, the following information was written about this depressed, homeless dog:
Sandy is—for lack of a better word—depressed. He came into the shelter after being hit by a car, and his shelter medical history says he had a superficial skin abrasion and was limping on his left rear leg. An x-ray showed a luxation of his left hip joint; he was given meds for the pain and to prevent infection. The shelter also says Sandy has a 2 of 6 heart murmur, which our information says is usually not a concern in a dog this young and is not likely to require medication. But our boy appears to be miserable, and he’s not allowed to be taken out of his kennel because of his limp.
According to Dogs In Danger, Sandy is not only miserable and depressed, but also, out of time – the site indicates that Sandy must exit the facility by November 16, or he will be put down. Please help Sandy beat the odds by taking a moment to network his information.
