Harold has lost his home twice

Friendly boy lost his home twice – sits at shelter for months

Update: Adopted!

A friendly two-year-old shepherd mix, dubbed “Harold” has been sitting at the Victor Valley Animal Protective League in Apple Valley, California, since December. Harold has been adopted twice, and twice, through no fault of his own, he has lost his home.

A woman who volunteers her time photographing the homeless dogs at the shelter is concerned about Harold and she reached out to the Pet Rescue Report on Monday to see if the homeless pup could get a helping hand. The woman described Harold’s predicament:

A sweet boy that has been at the shelter since December. He’s been adopted twice. First time returned, second time was found wandering the streets and returned to shelter.

Harold enjoys the company of dogs who are his size – he is already neutered and ready for his new (committed!) family. Please help Harold find a responsible new owner by sharing his adoption information. Harold’s Facebook thread here. Harold is in kennel C-16.

    Did they even bother to call the second owners? I sincerely hope Harold finds a loving permanent home. I could probably forgive the first owners perhaps the adoption didn’t work well, but, the second owners are a disgrace assuming they weren’t out there looking for Harold.

    it would seem Harold needs a very special home! One where he is treated with love attention and will be safe! He needs to know that he’s going to be in a forever home!

    He is a Beautiful Dog and deserves a Loving and Caring family: who will give him the time, love and commitment he deserves to have… I am happy that the shelter is giving him a chance at life too. Bless WAPL Humane Society…
