Overlooked and depressed, help needed to save Shorty

Shorty is a ten-year-old miniature Doberman pinscher who has been overlooked at the Inland Valley Humane Society. His plight has been labeled “red alert” for two reasons: one the dog has become extremely depressed and barely raises his head when potential adopters walk by, and secondly he has been at the shelter for over a month.Shorty the dog 2

    PLEASE some kindhearted person adopt Shorty – a senior dog is so highly adoptable – they are more docile and so ready to sit on the couch w/you and snuggle. They make excellent pets and will be so grateful to be in a loving home. Senior dogs are super pets for an older person and I believe enhance anyone’s life. Please choose Shorty – you will never regret it.

    Dogs are very people oriented cats too but with dogs there is a different dynamic! Dogs need to be with humans! As time goes by dogs can become very depresssed! We don’t know the whole history on this cute little kid! Older dogs can start suffering sundowning which is early form of dimentia just like humans! Shorty may be having either both or at least one of these issues! Shorty needs a nice stable home so that he can feel warm happy and secure! Shorty you’re going to be just fine little man! On you I bestow kisses and my protection!
