A stunning German shepherd is locked away in a busy California animal shelter kennel run because his family surrendered him without providing shelter staff with a reason. At eight years of age, Indio is considered to be a senior dog – unfortunately, his status as a senior makes him less desirable to many potential adopters.
Indio’s many attributes
United Hope for Animals has provided some information about this lovely senior dog’s many attributes. The animal welfare agency wrote:
“Indio is a is a good-natured 8-year-old brown-cream-and-white neutered male German Shepherd whose owners surrendered him to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on May 18th for no known reason. Weighing 80 lbs, this big and gentle boy is super sweet. He’s a calm lover who likes other dogs and loves people.”
A volunteer’s glowing comments about this deserving senior dog
A volunteer describes sweet Indio:
“He is smart and sweet, came right up to volunteers at our table asking for scratches and looking for treats. He takes treats gently and is what one would call an “old soul.” He’ll give you a kiss as well, though he won’t kiss you non-stop. Indio is a real companion, perfect for any type of household who wants that calm, steady, loving big dog that will be by your side, loyal forever.”
