Downey, CA – There is no holiday joy for a five-year-old German shepherd who was surrendered to a busy animal control agency by his family. Alpha’s face says it all…it is clear he is confused and heartbroken by the loss of his home and his people.
Imagine being loaded into the car one day and going for a drive…a drive that in the past resulted in fun outings like the beach, the park, or the home of friends. But on this day, your family takes you from the car, walks you into an unfamiliar building, and hands your leash to strangers before turning their backs and walking away.
This is Alpha’s reality and he has been left wondering where his family is for more than a month. This dog’s situation is heartbreaking and maybe tragic if he is not adopted or rescued soon.
Alpha’s time has expired…he will be led to a room and his life prematurely ended if he is not rescued soon. He advocate writes:
He’s a loyal gsd dealing with being at the shelter with out his family.
The first time I met him, I think he was fear-aggressive.
He barked at me to go away.
But he calmed down with a treat easily.
When I came back around with Alpha,
He wowed me with a nice greet and he sat on point for me, for a treat.
Alpha is out of time, and he has a lot to offer
He just needs a chance.
Please help him.
