Elderly shepherd with mobility issues now a ‘death row dog’ after second time in shelter

An elderly shepherd, 14 years of age, is now a death row dog after his second go-round at a busy California animal control agency. The dog, named Champ, has been at the Baldwin Park Animal Services facility since March 1, and his time is up. On Wednesday, an urgent plea was issued on his behalf:

Champ is CRITICALLY URGENT & likely has 12hrs left to live. Aged at 14, 95 lb Champ was found laying in fecal matter & urinated all the way to the play yard. This is not his first shelter stay, as he was adopted from this very shelter in July 2018.

Behavior assessment from the shelter:

Champ urgently needs to be rescued…please share his adoption information now!
