Shepherd struggles to walk or stand

SOS! Old shepherd at busy shelter can barely stand or walk

Help is desperately needed for an older German shepherd who is being held at a busy animal shelter in Houston, Texas. The 10-year-old dog, known only by his identification number, struggles to walk and can barely stand.

Very little is known about this older boy – a social media post made on his behalf reads:

Senior ALERT!
Has trouble to stand up and walk
Houston, Texas
This DOG – ID#A1646463

I am a male, brown and black German Shepherd Dog mix.

The shelter staff think I am about 10 years old.

I have been at the shelter since Aug 08, 2019.

Life shouldn’t end here for this dog – he should be with a person who loves him. He should be resting on a comfortable dog bed and have tasty treats in his tummy. Ideally a home could be found for this senior boy, or perhaps a hospice foster who can care for him for as long as he has left.

You can lend this senior dog a hand by sharing this article with his adoption information.
