  1. how on earth could he survive, poor doggie I live in Belgium so too difficult to adopt but happy to make a contribution and hopefully lots of animal lovers do so he can be helped in getting more comfortable

  2. Poor little guy I hope somebody adopts him, but I hope he can get the medical help he needs before then. I hope there’s a kind person with deep pockets somewhere out there.

    • Oh, no! It says he was getting a lot of attention…They probably just saw him and put him down right then! These SoCal shelter need a complete revamping, and new people at the helm!!

  3. Where is these dog now ? Is he able to eat to get the proper nutrition into him , how old is he? I would welcome him into my home no problem. Did someone adopt him ?
