Animal advocates trembled in fright and anger after a handsome white Alaskan husky was returned to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center just eight days after having been adopted with bites and open wounds near his face, head and ears.
“…very friendly 4 yr old neutered male white Alaskan Husky came to the shelter as a stray on 8/3/17. available 8/7/17. adopted 8/8/17 and returned on 8/16/17 because he had “open wounds” – it’s assumed their other dog didn’t like him.”

Share this dog’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. How he must have suffered for the few days he was abused and battered – assumed by another dog in the home. New dogs have to be introduced slowly to their homes where other dogs already live – what kind of irresponsible owner thought this was an appropriate way to save a dog’s life?
