A senior German shepherd dubbed “Rufus,” is currently being held at a busy animal control agency in California. The 12-year-old dog, identification number A4969957, is in a kennel run at the Los Angeles County Animal Control facility in Downey.
Rufus arrived to the facility on July 7 and he is available for adoption on July 11. Judging by Rufus’ appearance, it has been quite some time since he was treated to a good brushing. Rufus’ lack of grooming is the least of his worries…he is undoubtedly shaken and confused by his current situation.
Rufus’ age works against his odds of being adopted – most people who visit an animal control agency are seeking puppies, or young dogs as opposed to dogs who have already given much of their life to someone else.
Rufus may be a senior, but he is still alive and deserving of love – in order to help this deserving boy find someone to take him in, he requires the help of strangers who are willing to take a moment to network his adoption information.
