ADOPTED AS A PUPPY, now three years later, he finds himself back at the shelter. He was on a microchip hold but his family hasn’t came for him. Look at that confused face. Looks like this boy has been through a lot. First photo is his intake 2015, second photo is him now.

Kenneled with another dog, in adoptable building.
