How does a 16-year-old German shepherd wander away to roam the streets scavenging for food? Senior dogs are notoriously lazy and enjoy soft beds, delicious foods and a bit of pampering from those he has pledged his loyalty? If only that could have been the retirement for Tommy; now hidden in the back kennels of Carson Animal Care. Tragically, the latest news states that Tommy’s owner has been deported and the dog just left behind. How difficult the separation must have been for both of them? According to Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, Tommy was found on June 22 and is available for adoption.
Check out Tommy’s Pet Harbor adoption listing here:
