A 12-year-old German shepherd mix is being held at a busy California animal control…will anyone come to save him? The dog, dubbed Fletch, arrived at the shelter on January 6 – but his family never came to retrieve him.
Days ago, a Facebook post was made on behalf of the homeless senior dog:
“I will classify him as a gentle old soul with a big heart and a quiet sweetness about him. He loves to make eye contact with those big brown eyes and he takes treats very softly. He’s a senior who should not be here and needs our immediate attention. PLEASE SHARE FLETCH.”
Who purposefully seeks out a dog in the twilight of their life? Will anyone bother to give Fletch a second glance? Right now, this deserving senior dog could use the help of strangers who will share his adoption information – he should be in a home, with a family, not alone in a kennel run.
