Shivering in corner of shelter cage, 5-pound terrier lost in his sadness

What could be more tragic than a five-pound rat terrier huddled in the corner of a noisy over-crowded shelter afraid to venture even one step forward? Found  as a stray on July 9, his family seems to have abandoned him, and through the Miami-Dade County Animal Services, is scheduled to be available for adoption on Wednesday, July 13.

“I am an unaltered male, white and tan Chihuahua – Smooth Coated.
The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jul 09, 2016. Although I am still in my stray holding period, I may be available for the Foster to Adopt Program. Click here to learn more.”

Animal shelters are overcrowded  at this time of year, and these innocent victims of abandonment, neglect and cruelty need our help. Please share Taco’s plight with approved rescue organizations, family, friends and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives.Taco the rat terrier 2
