And when Nino’s family moved, 10-year-old loyal pup left behind

Spread the love

It’s not as if there is a line at the door to adopt a senior Doberman pinscher, but Nino’s former family surrendered their loyal dog to the overcrowded Miami-Dade County Animal Services with barely a nod of regret. “They were moving.” And so it became the worst day of Nino’s life – the sweet, well-behaved dog waited and waited for his family to return or maybe someone to come along and love him. In the meantime, Nino cries and shivers in his kennel – since June 30th – never getting accustomed to being a “shelter dog no one seems to want.” nino-at-miami-dade-22

Nino ID#A1077249.  “I am an unaltered male, black Doberman Pinscher mix. The shelter staff think I am about 10 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jun 30, 2016.” For more information about this animal, call Miami-Dade Animal Services at (305) 884-1101.

A Facebook page for Nino can be found here or here. Funds have been pledged for Nino’s rescue to an approved rescue organization when he is safely out of the shelter. Here is an older dog, who likely doesn’t chew the expensive shoes anymore,  has been described as friendly and seriously searching for his best friend. Share his plight with friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. Please don’t let this beautiful dog die in a shelter because no one wanted him.

  1. I just don’t understand the abandoning a loyal loving pet because you move.
    If you buy a house the issue should not be there. Its your home.
    If renting, many places, at least around my area, the landlord allows pets.
    There are many nice homes for rent that dogs and cats are allowed and some do have pet deposits but, its usually a small fee.
    I just don’t think moving is an excuse.

  2. Yes the old “moving” excuse. I hope and pray Nino finds his way out and to a loving home. One where the people will love him and if they move will take him with them. I am so sick of people abandoning their older pets like this!
