Hearts cry passing shepherd’s kennel at shelter as he breaks down

At the Riverside Shelter in California, volunteers hearts break as they pass a 10-year-old German shepherd’s kennel cage. Tragically, he no longer resembles the happy and healthy dog he had been in March when he first entered the shelter.

This is how he looked when he first arrived at the shelter on February 10, 2020.
