Senior shepherd Tigra: A life full of sadness needs reason to smile

Meet Tigra – a senior German shepherd whose life has been full of sadness and abuse. Almost a year ago, the eight-year-old dog was rescued by the Palmdale Police Department and brought to the Palmdale Animal Care Center while authorities pursued an animal cruelty case against the dog’s owners.

Tigra had been beaten and choked with an electrical cord. What happened to her owners in the court case has not been made public, but it has since been decided this sweet dog should be made available for adoption or rescue.

“The shelter went after those vile pieces of sh**,” posted animal advocate Sal Valdepena who is asking for the public’s help finding a safe home for Tigra. ” I think rescue would be best for her considering all that she has been through. She’s the sweetest, most forgiving angel.”

“Her life has been filled with so much sadness. She doesn’t even know how to smile, because let’s face it; she really doesn’t have anything to smile about.”

Now is the time to share Tigra’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. Follow Tiagra on Facebook here. This dog needs a solid plan. Notes indicate Tiagra has been at the shelter since November. The following information has also been included:

“Sal Valdepeña She’s been part of playgroups. I just talked to a very nice officer at Palmdale shelter, and she said ‘Tigra is a shelter pet’ the staff loves her. That makes me so happy.

She’s tense around rambunctious dogs, but she’s good with other seniors.

Please share this old girl. Let’s make her golden years so special she forgets her past.

I placed networking notes on her so they know the rescue community is fighting to help her.”

And the animal torturing monster/s who tortured Tigra, catch the monster/s and put this evil and vile lowlife pos to death.
    My belief is that all animal torturers and abusers should be put to death by the same cruelty and suffering they have deliberately tortured their defenceless and innocent victims.
    They are the filth on our planet earth and should not be allowed to live and breath our air. Kill them all.

    Pray that this sweet girl gets the love and attention she so deserves. Glad the shelter pursued charges against the scum who were her owners. Hope she comes out of her shell more and gives her forever family the smile we know she has.
