An old dog, who recently arrived at California’s South Los Angeles Animal Services facility, is struggling. The elderly dog, dubbed Harold, arrived as a stray and he is clearly confused, sad and frightened by his situation.


It is stressful for dogs who are confined in an animal control kennel – it is readily apparent by Harold’s video that he is terrified. A social media post made on Harold’s behalf reads:

Meet Harold #A1786097 He is a 10 year old Chow Mix that came in stray. Harold is very gentle and quiet but is not doing well in the shelter. He is very scared and nervous and is not eating unless he is being hand fed. OUR MEDICAL AREA AS WELL AS SHELTER IS OVERFLOWING HE IS URGENT

    Harold is a beautiful senior and so cute and deserving of a second chance. Please someone in the area foster or adopt this love bug and you will be rewarded tenfold.

    What a cutie!!! Won’t someone give this sweet boy a second chance? When I look in his eyes I can
    still see a lot of life left in him and certainly doesn’t seem his age.

    I hope that Harold will be adopted as soon as possible as elderly dogs should not be in a dog shelter. You can see by the way he shaking/trembling and panting that he is scared shit less in being there. So i am praying that somebody will come and adopt Harold ASAP
