It would be difficult to mistake the fear and terror in Gordo last week as he apparently realized the car trip to the Miami-Dade Animal Care Shelter wasn’t going to be a day in the park with his family and other dogs. The two-year-old Labrador retriever and bull dog mix was surrendered by his owner on July 31. Shelter personnel were saddened when the owner laughed as he held the terrified Gordo up to the camera for volunteers to take a photo.
Gordo’s Facebook, page as highlighted by Urgent Dogs of Miami, can be followed here. (A1888730) “I am a neutered male tan and white Labrador Retriever and American Bulldog. The shelter staff think I am about 2 years old and I weigh 50 pounds. I was turned in by my owner and I am available for adoption. 2017.07.31.” Advocates have been pledging funds an approved rescue organization to help with Gordo’s care and veterinary expenses. Additional pledges can be followed here.
