When the owners of a badly neglected senior dog surrendered her to a busy California animal shelter, the staffs’ hearts broke. On June 24, after the 13-year-old dog’s arrival, staff explained:
Our 💔s broke when neglected sweet senior Krieger was turned in to the Care Center by her family.
She spent her life as a back yard dog and arrived so matted and full of fox tails that she had to be given a humane shave.💔
This neglected senior didn’t arrive alone
Krieger didn’t arrive to the shelter alone – she came in with her bonded friend, Faith. On June 28, Healthcare for Homeless Animals explained:
We posted Krieger’s heartbreaking intake condition previously…what we didn’t include is she came in with darling Faith who has makes it her job to look out for Krieger.
Officer Rodney reports when Krieger returned from the Vet post humane groom that Faith was beside herself to have her best friend back. And when Faith was pulled from their kennel cage to be added to the small dog play group Krieger whimpered until her faithful little terrier partner was back. Housed together Volunteers report Faith can be found either sleeping on top of Krieger or curled up close.
