A senior dog, who spent her entire life with a loving family, is currently being held at a busy, open-admission animal shelter in Georgia. The eight-year-old dog, named “Tessa,” lost her family when they lost their home.
Tessa is at the Glynn County Animal Control, who described the heartbreaking scene when the senior dog was surrendered by her family, “Tessa’s former owners had her since she was a puppy and they were all she ever knew. It was very hard decision for them and they cried in our lobby. We promised we would do the best we could to find her a home.”
Tessa has been at the busy animal control agency for a few months now – tragically, her life is in jeopardy because the facility is full and that means that homeless pets can be put down because of space constraints.
Thanks to Tessa’s former owners, this dog’s many attributes are known. The shelter wrote:
The owners told us lots of great things about Tessa to help get her placed in a new home that would love her as much as they did. They told us she was excellent with children and loves to play! She is housebroken and she had always been an inside dog. She is 8 years old, 39 pounds, and a mix breed (maybe border collie/terrier mix). She is not so good with cats. At the shelter, she did great with a larger male dog, but not so good with a smaller female dog. (A meet and greet is recommended with a resident dog to see if it’s a match.)
You can help this deserving senior dog find a new family by sharing her information. Questions? Please email the shelter at animalservices@glynncounty
Location: Glynn County Animal Control is located at 4765 Highway 17 N, Brunswick, GA.
