Stunning chocolate beauty returned to shelter for ‘not listening’

A stunning looking chocolate Doberman Pinscher deserves a better deal. After two years, Canela was returned to the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston because she “didn’t listen.”

In addition when the three-year-old pooch was adopted she was heartworm negative – now her results have revealed she is heartworm positive, but medication can cure the disease.

10/21-Canela is out of the shelter with Doberman Rescue of North Texas!! Freedom pic in comments! 😍This stunning chocolate beauty is Canela. Canela needs a better owner because hers didn’t deserve her. Canela was returned for…NOT LISTENING!! 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ They also had her for 2 years so this is just ridiculous. Canela was heartworm negative when she initially left the shelter and now she’s heartworm positive so they just didn’t bother giving her preventative. 😡 Thankfully, medication is affordable so don’t let that stop you from saving her. Canela is 3 years old and already spayed so let’s find her a home with someone who actually cares about their pets.If you cannot foster or adopt, please consider donating. 100% goes directly to the rescue that saves her once freedom photos are posted in the comments for everyone to see.

    BULLS**T! This dog was abused, just look at the SCARS on her head, back leg, neck, and back. You can tell she was starved when you look at her face and stomach. A vet once told me that a skinny abdomen doesn’t always tell the whole story, their face and stomach condition however, says it ALL! I bet a $50 she looked for food as any living entity would if hungry, and THAT was their FAULT, but blame it on the dog. Karma WILL be a b***h to these people.
