Time Is Running Out For Handsome, Gentle Senior Shepherd Who Nobody Wants

Update 6/5/2023: Rescued by Ark Charities!!

Downey, CA – A big, beautiful German shepherd has run out of time at a busy California animal shelter. The eight-year-old dog, Dandy, has been at the Downey Animal Control since April 7, and he is on the “urgent” list of dogs who must exit the facility.

This big boy (weighing in at a whopping 119 pounds!) was taken in as a stray on April 7, and though he most likely had an owner, nobody ever came to the shelter to claim him.

An advocate has described Dandy as happy and sweet. German shepherds are devoted companions with exceptional intelligence. At eight years of age, Dandy likely wants nothing more than slow strolls with his person and a soft bed to lounge on during the day.

Will you please take a moment to share Dandy’s adoption information? Time is of the essence to save this handsome dog’s life.

Find Dandy’s adoption profile at this link.

    • There is someone willing to transport to Ohio. Can you drive to Ohio to get him IF we can get a rescue to work with us? Also, you would have to adopt him from a rescue, as you have to be a resident of Downey, California to adopt from the shelter. Rescues generally charge about $500 for adoption which covers vet, boarding while waiting for transport, shelter fees, etc. It may seem like alot, but rescue groups barely break even. If you still interested, please email me at Zerodestruction1@gmail.com

      Hope to hear from you.
      P.s. I live in MD & adopted my urgent German Shepherd from a California shelter.

  2. People have mentioned that they can do something but this site says you have to contact the shelter directly. Commenting on here is not going to do anything. I really hope someone can intervene. I live in on the Atlantic coast of canada – too far away.

  3. Don’t wait if you think you can find Dandy a home. Call the shelter as they advised and tell them NOW you will help Dandy before its too late for him. He could be PTS any moment now, no time to waste.
