A young dog, just twelve months of age, has found herself locked away in a kennel run. The German shepherd mix, dubbed Polly, is being held at the Riverside County Animal Control – Riverside Shelter in California – she was taken in on November 4 and nobody has come forward to claim her as their own.
Polly is clearly frightened and confused at the facility – an advocate is doing her utmost to find help for this scared pup. On November 16, her advocate wrote about the dog’s heartbreaking response when someone stopped to say hello:
In the first picture a volunteer had opened the glass door on the inside part of the kennels and was gently talking to her. The volunteer would gently start to raise her leash to try to see if she would come out, Polly would slowly and quietly turn to put her nose all the way in the corner….heartbreaking and not a shred of aggression….just fear and sadness…and only 12 months old
Polly has no reason to feel secure or loved – she is alone and frightened and desperately in need of a loving, patient home, and/or a reputable rescue group who can help her come out of her shell.
