Heartbreaking senior: What kind of life has ‘Wrinkles’ endured?

Update 7/27/17: Wrinkles was returned to his owner

Found wandering the streets of Los Angeles and picked up by Animal Control on Sunday, animal advocates continue to question why neighbors and area residents never reported the condition of Wrinkles wherever he once lived.  The condition of the  13-year-old Chinese Shar Pei is shocking; is there no one who ever cared for this dog? And in this case, he was lucky to wind up at the Baldwin Park Animal Shelter. At the very least he will be fed and safe; at least for now.

Click here for the dog’s adoption listing. “My name is Wrinkles and I am described as a neutered male, tan Chinese Sharpei. The shelter thinks I am about 13 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jul 23, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Baldwin Park at (626) 962-3577. Ask for information about animal ID number A5088201.
