On April 9, a handsome dog, just five years of age, was surrendered to a busy Texas animal shelter. Wero is clearly shaken by the loss of his home – he trembles in fear inside of his kennel run. The surrendered dog has reason to be afraid…surrendered dogs are most at risk of being put down because they do not have to be held for the mandatory “stray” hold.
Adding to Wero’s troubling situation is the presence of a growth on his body – the following information was posted on Wero’s behalf by the Facebook page, Shelter Animals of Garland, Mesquite and Rowlett, Texas:
5 year old unaltered male, with superficial growth on back. We will not be able to pay for it to be removed and he will not likely get adopted with it.

To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”
