A senior dog has been surrendered to a busy California animal control agency after his owner suffered a serious back injury. The dog, a nine-year-old German shepherd mix named “Sampson” is undoubtedly heartbroken and confused after the loss of his adoring owner.
On Wednesday, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, described the sad situation:
SAMPSON is 120 pounds of PURE LOVE and his Owner has a serious back injury and could no longer walk and care for his very large best friend. He brought him to the Shelter hoping someone could give him a better life with exercise and activity he needs to be healthy. The Owner was heartbroken and said he had SAMPSON for his whole life and he is AMAZING with everyone!
Sampson needs help – the animal control facility is full and owner-surrendered dogs are most at risk of being put down. Please share Sampson’s information and help him find a new owner to love him.
