Update: Rescued by Canine Nation!

A terrified dog, described as a German shepherd mix, was owner surrendered to a Philadelphia animal control agency on October 8 and he is urgently in need of rescue or adoption. The dog, who is under two years of age, “must find exit” by October 11 (Tuesday) at 8 p.m.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Facebook page “Philly Urgents,” wrote, “Negrito is a handsome 1 – 2 year Shepherd mix was brought to the shelter because his owners could not properly house him. He is reported to have lived with other dogs, cats, and children in the past. His previous owners say that he walks well on his leash, will come when called, and absolutely loves to play fetch! Sadly, being in the loud and stressful kennel environment has caused this sweet pup to become very scared.”

Negrito is so terrified in the kennel that he cowers in the corner and refuses to come out for staff. Negrito is in an album of extremely urgent dogs – Philly Urgents explains the urgency of the situation:

All of the dogs in this album are at risk for euthansia due to being Time-stamped. If your rescue can help any of these dogs, please contact [email protected] ASAP and come into the shelter.

If you are interested in adopting the adoptable time-stamped dogs, please email [email protected]

Breed: German Shepherd mix.
Intake: Owner surrender on 10/8 (inadequate housing).
Age: 1 – 2 years.
Weight: 64.4 lbs.
Sex/Alter Status: Unaltered male.
Behavior Condition: Scared in kennels, at risk of declining in shelter.

Facility address:
