A young German shepherd being held at a Maricopa County, Arizona, animal shelter is deteriorating and she needs to leave as soon as possible. The two-year-old dog, Inez, has been at the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control facility since late December, and she has notes on her profile indicating that she has behavior issues.

Inez had an owner once upon a time. Her behavior issues are undoubtedly a result of losing her home and family and winding up somewhere unfamiliar and frightening. Staff and volunteers provided information about what is happening at the shelter:

Dog was bleeding from a cut on her nose, she was hitting it against fence. Also had bloody paws from jumping up on side of kennel. Dog had very high energy level in kennel, running back in forth and jumping at dogs next to her.

And Inez’s shelter profile states:

1/18/2022 NEW HOPE 01/18/22 11:54 Dog appears to be deteriorating in shelter. Placing on portal, increase in kennel enrichment. Dog needs outlet.

Inez’s former owner said that she likes people and prefers men to women.

Inez needs to be placed with an experienced German shepherd rescue agency who can help her relax and feel comfortable once again. Please share her adoption information to help her gain more visibility. Time is not on her side.
