Kennel stressed German shepherd waited for his ‘people’ to come back and now is slated to be euth’ed

Spread the love

In animal shelters across the country, rarely is there a time that waiting brings about “good things.” Dennis, a young German shepherd, brought into Hesperia Animal Control in California nearly one month ago, is scheduled to be humanely euthanized; the shelter is overcrowded, and Dennis has been showing signs of kennel stress.

I sat here. I waited. I watched people come in and out. I kept thinking any minute now you will walk through the door. I know I got out and I got, lost but I thought you would come find me. They say I am such a good boy here but they are out of kennel space. I have been here longer than month. I try to get peoples’ attention as they come in, but they pass me by. It is probably my age because I jump around too much because I am a young dude.

  1. I hope someone local can open up their heart & house for this precious treasure. He deserves to be in a loving furever family who will treat him as a beloved family member for his entire life.

    • He looks like a nice, young, healthy dog. I really hope that he can be rehomed.

      Has anyone ever told the breeders that they are breeding animals faster than they can be saved???

      I am in Washington state and feel totally helpless for this precious treasure…….
