Posted as “urgent” on numerous social media dog rescue sites, the heartbreaking photos and short videos of a senior Labrador retriever remind us how such sorrowful stories continue to repeat themselves over and over again. This is Buddy, (#A4259794) and he is completely shut down and just won’t move.

Animal rescue advocates have been sharing Buddy’s story and are hoping someone or an approved rescue organization will step up to help. Buddy is not listed on the website at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center, although he was surrendered on August 3, 2021.

Share Buddy’s plight with approved rescue organizations, friends, family and social media contacts. Sharing saves lives. Follow this dog’s story here.
