Stunning Shepherd Is Shelter’s Longest Resident Dog – Overlooked For Months

Downey, CA – A handsome German shepherd named Chip has the unfortunate distinction of being the longest-resident dog at the Downey Animal Shelter in California. It is amazing that this three-year-old dog has not been adopted or rescued…he is in the prime of his life, is gorgeous, and he has a great personality to boot.

An advocate writes:

He’s great at staying for a treat. Waiting for the ball to be thrown. He will wow you, love you and he can be trained to do anything. Give him an opportunity to be your best friend for life.

Chip, ID#A5540919, is intelligent, loving, and eager to please. But all of Chip’s glowing attributes have not managed to secure him the safety that he needs to survive. Tragically, highly adoptable dogs are euthanized every week because the shelter facility has no space for all of the homeless animals that continue to flow into the building. And because of the length of time that Chip has been at the shelter, he is considered to be “urgent.”

Please take a moment to network Chip’s adoption information. Your effort to share his adoption profile could be the difference between his life, and his death.

  1. I urge people to give this wonderful German Shepherd a home! I’m writing this fron London and I grew up with German Shepherds from when I was a baby! I continued to grow up with them until I was 16 and if I could, at the age of 62 I wouldn’t hesitate to have another one. Problem is I don’t think my cats would be too appreciative! They make a wonderful pet and are fiercely loyal. Please give this beautiful dog a chance. He will repay you tenfold and more!

  2. Was he killed? No notes on him at the shelter. We need to address the overbreeding of animals in this country in addition to funding the shelters better and promoting fostering and adoption over purchase. Every time someone buys a dog from a breeder it leads directly to killing in shelters.

  3. I hope this Dog wasn’t murdered this is disgusting killing them all shelters should be NO KILL 🤬🤬🤬🤬
