It was the 4th of July as families and friends gathered together to celebrate; that is except for Butter. The 11-year-old Chinese Sharpei was surrendered to the Carson Animal Care Center without even a reason. His family said he was fine with other dogs, he was house trained, walked fine on a leash and even knew his commands, but he was no longer wanted. Just like that! With the flick of a signature, his leash and collar removed, Butter’s new home was to be a temporary cage.

“My name is Butter and I am described as a male, red and tan Chinese Sharpei mix. The shelter thinks I am about 11 years old. I have been at the shelter since July 04, 2016.”
For more information about this animal, call Los Angeles County Animal Control – Carson at (310) 523-9566. A Facebook page for this dog can be found here. Although Butter lived in the backyard most of his life, he was accustomed to being inside of the home. Now in an overcrowded shelter, his days are numbered. He will need a temperament test before he can be adopted. A video for Butter can be viewed here. When called, he happily peeks his head out towards the volunteer while wagging his tail; perhaps hoping he will spot his family and be on his way home.
Share Butter’s plight with approved rescue organizations, family, friends and social media contacts. Surrendered dogs have no required holding periods and can be euthanized at anytime. Sharing saves lives, and this kind older soul certainly deserves better than this. For more information, contact the Carson Shelter located at 216 Victoria Street, Gardena, California. Phone: 310.523.9566.
