Elderly shepherd, it shouldn't end this way

16-year-old Buddy – this isn’t how his life should end

Sharing your life with a dog who makes it to 16 years of age is a gift – something that most dog owners hope they get to enjoy. But one homeless dog in California is not sharing the gift of his long life with anyone – 16-year-old Buddy has been at the Los Angeles County Animal Control (Downey) facility since November 26 and he is waiting to be saved.

A plea for help

On Thursday, an advocate shared a plea for help on behalf of this elderly dog, writing:

For a German Shepherd to grow old to have a sugary white face and slow shuffle,big brown eyes and a toothless grin of adorableness…..he should not be in a shelter till his loving hearts stops on earth and passes on to heaven.
He needs his golden moments with cozy beds, sweet snuggles and warm tasty bits.

Adding:

Rescue or humanitarian with a big heart, love and the capability, please immediately get Buddy home where he deserves to be loved.

Saving Buddy

Buddy could really use some help right now – he’s an elderly dog who should be enjoying the remainder of his life in a home, with a family who adores him. You can help make that possible by sharing this article, with his adoption information.
