A small dog, described as a Chihuahua mix, is overwhelmed and shaking in fear at an open intake animal shelter in San Bernardino, California. The dog, identification number A498730, arrived to the San Bernardino City Animal Control on October 14.
The busy animal control agency is obviously overwhelming, and terrifying for this little dog – on Monday, a woman networking on behalf of this dog wrote, “So terrified. Faces wall all day and night, shaking in fear. Staff has not listed age or gender.”
He, or she, appears to be trying to escape from the frightening situation by curling up and facing the wall…unfortunately, hiding will not help this pup escape from reality.
The Petharbor profile for this dog indicates that he or she will become available for adoption on October 21. The profile reads, “If you are my owner, you must physically come to the shelter to claim me. We are located at 333 Chandler Place, San Bernardino, CA 92408. Our Lost & Found hours are Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 am to 5 pm. A picture ID (such as a driver’s license) is required to redeem me. There are also fees like impound, board and license that must be paid before I can go home. If I am not claimed, after my stray holding period, I may be available for adoption on Oct 21, 2016.”
