Worried and confused: Help Calvin find his new life

Handsome seven-year-old German shepherd Calvin appears to be very worried and confused. Just days ago, he had been home with everything familiar – his bed, his toys and his family. And then it happened. Calvin jumped into the car and thought he was going for an afternoon ride. Sadly, the ride was only to be one way. Calvin was surrendered on December 17 to the Downey Animal Care Center in California.calvin-the-gs2

Animal advocate and shelter volunteer Desi Lara met Calvin on Sunday and had hoped to take him out into the play area for some sunshine and fun. Unfortunately the rain canceled their plans, but Desi provides us with more information as to this sweet dog’s soul:

“His large snout, his questioning eyebrows with these big brown eyes and a white frosty muzzle, just killed me, he ‘gots’ such a great face. He was sweet and easy in the kennel, hoping for a sunny day to take him out. His parents relinquished him and so now he needs new forever parents, who will give him a life time of love. Please post, tag and share him.”

Share Calvin’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. This gorgeous senior deserves better, and surely there is someone to foster him until his “forever” family is found.  Follow his Facebook here. For more information, contact the Downey Animal Shelter located at 11258 Garfield Avenue, Downey, California 90242. Phone: (562) 940-6898.

Follow the National Pet Rescue on Facebook. Here’s hoping to start this dog’s year with a loving home. Please help.

    I don’t live in the US or have any social media contacts there either so I would share the story, but just wanted to say I hope that this beautiful boy finds a home with loving parents/family. What a loving soul he is, would be great if he could find a new home to start off a new year ❤️
