An eight-year-old German shepherd, referred to by volunteers at the North Central Shelter in California as a gentle-spirited dog, needs urgent help. Virgil was found wandering the streets badly wounded after what appears to have been the result of a dog attack. Animal control officers think the dog may have been abandoned and wandering around looking for his home when attacked by the other dogs. Despite his deep wounds and the pain Virgil must have endured, not once did he complain, whimper or snarl as the emergency veterinarian staff cleaned and sutured his many wounds.
Sadly there is no room at the shelter for a dog in Virgil’s condition.

“Poor Virgil’s life is in serious danger, as the city shelter is no place at all for a dog in his condition to be recovering. We very much need to find a safe home for Virgil to rest and recover in.
