Update 9/11/18: Rescued!
On August 18, a senior dog was driven to a busy California animal control agency and surrendered by his family for being “too old.” Today, the 13-year-old dog, named Choco, is tucked away in the medical area of the animal shelter, hidden from the general public.

He was surrendered to the shelter, ‘too old’ , but that just means to me that he’s got a second chance to have great love adopting a senior dog is the best. They also found a small mass in his groin area. This peanut is in the medical department receiving extra care, but is UNSEEN any the public. Please tag adopters or Rescue.
