If only Rose could talk. The heartbreaking photo of a neglected two-pound Maltese and poodle mix estimated to be 14-years-old brought tears to everyone’s eyes. How does a little senior like this get lost or stray away from home? She can’t jump nor can she run quick enough to escape. Her coat is a matted mess, and she’s underweight.
The staff at the Ventura County Animal Services have named her Rose. She is currently in the medical section of the shelter, and she is being treated and made comfortable. Click here for Rose’s Pet Harbor adoption link:
“My name is Rose and I am an unaltered female, white Poodle – Toy.
IF I AM YOUR PET, PLEASE CALL THE SHELTER IMMEDIATELY AT (805) 388-4341.
If you are interested in me, please visit the shelter during normal business hours.
The shelter staff think I am about 14 years old.
I have been at the shelter since Nov 08, 2017.”
For more information about Rose, call Ventura County Animal Services – Camarillo at 805-388-4341. Make sure to reference A676179. A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here. According to the shelter, Rose has a microchip and therefore will be kept at the shelter November 19. At this time, donations are being pledged to help an approved rescue organization with her medical expenses.
“Cathi Perez According to the shelter she is doing great and doesn’t have any serious or life threatening issues, they are taking very good care of her.”
Sadly, the rescue community shakes their heads in disbelief knowing someone most likely abandoned Rose because she was old.
