A young dog, just three years of age, has been homeless for months after he lost his new home. The dog, named “Xander,” wound up at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena, California back in February when his new owner was forced to surrender the dog because the landlord said that Xander had to go.
Xander is described as an amazing, sweet dog who scored a commendable “B” on his temperament test. Back in February, shortly after Xander arrived at the animal control agency, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:
Sweet XANDER is perfect, did amazing on his TEMP TEST and he was adopted for about a week until the Landlord told him to get out. He is sweet and HOUSEBROKEN and he needs help now! Please SHARE for his life, he is VERY special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him.
Fast forward to mid-June to find this sweet boy still locked away behind bars – still homeless and increasingly at risk of losing his young life.
