Two dogs are sad and confused after everything in their life turned upside down when their owner moved and left them behind at a busy animal control agency in Chicago, Illinois. The dogs, Tyke and Bella, are both “chubby,” but sweet.
Tyke and Bella are housed in separate kennels at the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility – after the dogs arrived, the CCAC Dog Transfer Team Facebook page described the impact that being homeless has had on sweet Bella:
Bella is very sad in her cage. She curls up on her blanket in the corner. She was very easy to leash up and wags her tail when you approach her cage. She was very easy to handle on a leash. It seems as though she struggles walking a bit and gets tired easily. She appears very overweight and could benefit from losing some pounds, as it seems like she is uncomfortable walking at times. She loves walking around the yard and would stop often to sit and to take breaks. Her tail wags when you pet her, but she does seem confused with her new surroundings.
Tyke’s information was posted as well:
Tyke is very calm in his cage and he easily comes out. He walks nicely on leash and likes to sniff a lot. He’s a calm guy. Walked around the run with a toy in his mouth but didn’t do more than that. He took treats gently but wasn’t terribly food motivated. Tyke was surrendered with Bella. Bella was happy to see him.
Tyke and Bella are “rescue only.” Please read the following information from the CACC Dog Transfer Team Facebook page with regards to rescuing homeless pets from this facility:
Please do NOT call the shelter to inquire about any dogs you see on the CACC Rescue page. The volunteer Transfer Team was created to help with this, so please send a note via our Facebook page ♥ Thank you!!
Since these dogs are not on the adoption floor due to reasons such as space or medical, we need rescue groups to pull them asap.
