UPDATE: RESCUED by @googooyin88 on 3/3!!🎉🎉$500 pledges & FOSTER OFFER!! Pledges/Rescue needed🆘I feel like Duke recognizes me now. He gets up when I come over and gives me a kiss. He also gives me a distress call. The shelter is starting to really stress him out, and he needs out. He was dumped at 11.5 years of age so who knows how much time he has left in his life. 😩 He shouldn't spend his golden years at a cold shelter. He needs an adopter or rescue asap!! DUE OUT DATE HAS PASSED!!! #saveduke ID #3492102
Last post: UPDATE: $310 pledges & FOSTER OFFER!! Rescue needed🆘I saw Duke again today, and he made me just as sad as when I saw him at intake 4 days ago. The shelter is getting so hot now, and this senior is not doing well. His spirits are still good, because he came over to give me a kiss and hang out with me for a bit. His skin is cracking at certain places. His legs are wobbly, because he's so old. He is still wondering why he is at this scary place after living with a family for over 11 years. He may not have much time left in his life but what time he has should be with people who love him and should be spent on a soft bed. Let's #saveduke! ID #3492102
Last post: UPDATE: $40 starting pledges; foster/rescue needed!🆘Two dogs really broke my heart to pieces today. Duke is one of them. He is an 11.5 (!) year old #Germanshepherd or #chowchow mix (?) who was dumped at the #downeyanimalshelter TODAY. Watch until the end of the video, and you will see him tremble. He was distraught, confused, heartbroken and scared. As I watched him walk around (he's a big dog so there's not much room for him to move around), I could see how weak his hind legs are. You can see the loose skin on his neck that shows how much he's aged. This senior does NOT belong at the shelter, and I am so sad to know he's there. He wagged his tail so much and gave me kisses, and I'm sure he misses his humans. 😭 please we have to get him out of there!
