A terrified dog dumped by her owner found a corner to hide in at the overcrowded shelter at Baldwin Park Animal Care in California less than one week ago. No doubt the three-year-old dog’s heart had been broken. A shelter volunteer told Paige’s sad story.
“The first two days she was terrified laying down trembling nonstop. Now she’s found the corner outside and won’t take her head out of it. It’s so heartbreaking how sad and scared she feels!”
It appears Paige had recently given birth to a litter of puppies. Her puppies were not surrendered with her.
“Maybe she’s missing them and was dumped because they don’t need her anymore?,” the volunteer continued. “She won’t even touch her wet food. And she’s housebroken so she hasn’t gone in her kennel cause she’s so terrified.”
On Saturday, Paige’s life changed. When Northwest Dog Project originally inquired about the dog’s availability, there had been a long list of people who had committed to her rescue, however during the course of just a few days, all of the interested parties had backed out.
Shortly after finding out the dog had not been rescued, arrangements were made and Paige was on her way to the veterinarian – now part of the Northwest Dog Project. She will remain at the veterinarian’s office until she can be transferred to Oregon where she will be going into foster care.
