A young German shepherd, not even two years of age, is being held at a busy California animal control agency. The dog, known only by her ID number (A1492373) was taken in at the Riverside County Animal Control – Riverside Shelter on December 17 as a stray…though in all likelihood she had an owner, that person never showed up to reclaim her.

Shepherds are known for their loyalty and intelligence – these same traits have left this young dog heartbroken and confused. It is apparent that this girl is missing her family and wondering what she has done wrong.

Saving this young shepherd

    This dog and others need to be advertised to the public so that more can see that these animals may have owners looking for them a distance away. Many owners just look locally but should also check the next towns or two to see if there pet is there. More promoting lost dogs for more to see would help these dogs find their owners or at least a new family.

    This girl COULD serve as a companion dog for a Wounded Veteran, trained as a service dog by a reputable organization ….. So VERY Many options out there… But organizations are too busy trying to Bilk Dollars from The public and much of it is Misused or Funneled into a personal bank Roll…. Our Country & Many of these So-Called Rescues are Down Right Corrupt Anymore..A person doesn’t know who to Help and Who to be Aware of!!!! I only hope someone will give this girl a chance ,but California is one of the most dubious of States that aren’t Rescue Friendly!!!
