Meet Gabriel; yes he looks very scared in his kennel and needs help now.  Downey Animal Care Center has given 72-hour notice for this two-year-old pup or he will be placed on the list for euthanasia . He needs a miracle to help him now.

According to shelter notes, Gabriel is available for public adoption, but needs to be placed in an all adult home because of his discomfort when handled. He is tolerant with other dogs and is gentle when playing.

Gabriel #A5413721 2yr Neutered Blk/brn German shepherd 69 lbs. Stray 4/17/21. “Adults only due to his discomfort with handling and overall timid-like demeanor requiring further confidence building and socialization.”

Gabriel’s advocates writes:

This handsome #gsd boy, is scared at the shelter.
In the kennel, he is a scared and uncomfortable young shepherd.
But take a look at his playgroup picture on the bottom left. His ears are up and looking pretty happy. That’s because he is out in playgroup. He is getting attention from the handlers.
Gabriel, the #gsdhunk needs to find a home, for he doesn’t have any more uncomfortable nights being scared.
Please call the shelter for his notes and recommendations.
Share him, for he gets a chance at #adopters to notice him.
