At the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in California, the owner of a tiny Chihuahua held him in her arms one last time before surrendering him as a “stray.” The woman dumping the dog, on Thursday afternoon, told several volunteers the dog’s name was Canelo; some people will do anything just to save a buck.
“His name is Canelo; his owner told us she was surrendering him because he goes outside. She told myself and two volunteers his name and then dumped him calling him a stray so she didn’t have to pay the fees,” stated rescue volunteer Sal Valdepena.
As the little dog was placed in a surrender cage, his eyes focused on his owner who didn’t turn around to even say goodbye.
“It’s truly the most heartbreaking act of cruelty,” Sal continued. “He loved his family only to be dumped so terrified with his little tail tucked the entire time. He watched his family walk away from him once they locked him in a cage. He did NOTHING wrong…in fact all he did was love the wrong people.”
“I don’t have a name yet and I’m an approximately 4 years old male chihuahua sh. I am not yet neutered. I have been at the Baldwin Animal Care Center since June 28, 2018. I am available on July 3, 2018. You can visit me at my temporary home B125.”
