For five years, Scout lived with her owner, but on Wednesday she was surrendered to the Harris County Animal Shelter, and the reason for leaving her there was heartbreaking. A volunteer tells Scout’s story:

“I am Scout and my dad left me here yesterday and I am falling apart. My dad just said he didn’t want me anymore on my intake notes. I don’t understand what I did wrong. He was my dad for 5 years. I’m heartworm negative!

The shelter can kill me immediately because I am an ‘owner surrender.’ I am a girl.”

My name is SCOUT

I am female. I look like a white and black American Pit Bull Terrier.

    I want to sincerely thank everyone who posts follow-ups. Not everyone is on Facebook so we suffer–worrying and wondering if the animals are saved. Thank you again.
