In Mesquite, Texas, a “perfect” four-month-old puppy named Doug was surrendered to the City of Mesquite Animal Shelter on Wednesday. A shelter volunteer was there when the heartbreaking farewell occurred.

“Doug’s mom was devastated she had to let him go. Life had turned to both for the worst & she was forced to live out of her car. Knowing that his is not the life for Doug, she had to make the tough decision to bring him to the shelter in hopes that he finds a new home.”

Doug is described as very friendly. The volunteer was able to walk up to the puppy and was greeted with positive energy and gleeful tail wags.

Doug weighs 41 pounds, knows his commands for sit, down and relax. His previous owner says he is great with children and loves to be outdoors. He has been vaccinated and dewormed.

Follow Doug’s plight here. Please reach out to friends, family and social media contacts and share Doug’s photo and his delightful personality. Sharing saves lives.

Please send your inquiry to rescues@cityofmesquite.com and reference Doug 46584213.
