Surrendered By Her Owner, Senior Dog ‘Prieta,’ At Risk Of Being Put Down

An 11-year-old dog was surrendered to a full Texas animal control facility and now she is at risk of being put down.

San Antonio, TX – A senior dog named Prieta is trying to make sense of her world after being surrendered to a busy Texas animal control agency in San Antonio. Prieta is 11 years old and her life is in danger at the San Antonio Animal Care Services facility, where she has been held since her owner handed her over to staff.

On Sunday, the Texas Senior Shelter and Rescue Animals Facebook page wrote:

Estimated Age 11 YEARS , BLACK, LABRADOR RETRIEVER / BLEND DOG. Weight 32.9 LBS ♥️ Heartworm Test: NEGATIVE Heartworm Smear: NEGATIVE 📍


San Antonio, Tx Days At Shelter: 2

⚠️Due to kennel capacity this pet will be 💀killed 🤦‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️without confirmed placement. ⚠️

What the shelter writes about this senior dog:

Comfy blankets, popcorn, movie, cuddles, Prieta? Check, check, check, check, check! We are all a go on move night! Meet the lovely Prieta! She used to be the face of Barkwood. After many hit and nominees she retired but she loves reminiscing the good old days. She is shy at first but once you have her opening up, you can’t stop her. The years have not been well with Prieta and she’s looking for a place where she can place her grammys.

The shelter facility is full, meaning that owner-surrendered dogs will be put down first. Imagine being in the twilight of her life, and suddenly being unwanted and homeless. This is Prieta’s sad reality.

Please share her information and help her find an adopter, or reputable rescue group, before she is gone forever.

  1. Please don’t kill her it’s not her fault she was returned. How can you sleep at night after killing these animals on a daily basis. There’s no such thing as being overfill. It’s called work thru it and don’t give up. When nursing homes are too full we don’t euthanize those people , you work with it and find solutions and not take the easy way out.

  2. Very sad. Apparently her owners didn’t want an old dog, since she seems to be in good health. There are an awful lot of cowards out there, calling themselves pet parents.
