Perhaps it’s another reckless and irresponsible backyard breeder dumping dogs again? Local shelters have reported more than one English bulldog picked up as strays  recently in the area of  the San Bernardino City Animal Shelter. And now Walter Matthieu needs a hero as soon as possible.

“Walter is most likely from same breeder the other English Bullies have come from lately? Walter is so hot, misters on and he loves the water, has flea dirt? bleeding from back somewhere?,” wrote shelter volunteer Andrea Neyses on social media hoping to find a safe place for this suffering pup.

Temperatures are expected to reach record highs in the next few days, and Walter is so very hot. Although the misting elements are turned on and he loves the gentle cooling, this dog needs immediate rescue and medical attention. A Facebook page for this dog can be followed here. Click here for this dog’s PetHarbor listing. “I am a male, white and black English Bulldog mix. I have been at the shelter since Jun 17, 2017.” For more information about this animal, call San Bernardino City Animal Control at (909) 384-1304.
Ask for information about animal ID number A505100. Although this dog’s availability date is listed as June 24, he can leave with a medical release.

    Don’t you have vets that partner with you? This baby clearly has infection in his eyes & God knows what else is going on…..couldn’t he get a bath? That would make him feel better….do you have air conditioning in your kennel area….he’s gonna have a hard time finding a forever home in the condition he is in….have you tried rescue groups in your area? Like NYC Rescue? Can’t you take a tissue or warm cloth to get the green gunk from his little eyes? Please do something to help him.
