This handsome senior boxer mix seems very subdued in his kennel. He appears to have seen a lot in his lifetime; his muzzle is white as is the fur around his eyes. He has definitely earned a soft bed for his grizzled old bones. He sits in the back of the kennel and doesn’t move — even when volunteers come to visit.
Some people posting comments on his thread say that he is heartbroken at the shelter while other say that he is bothered by the constant activity and whining of his kennel mate, a cocker spaniel. Unlike the boxer, the cocker seems to be a bit younger, although his fur is rough and uncared for. Was he on the streets for a while, or was he just dumped by his owner?
The fact is that the boxer sits, unmoving, for long periods of time while the cocker is nervous, whining and anxious. They both need to be out of the shelter — together or not — to be safe. Please share their story. It wouldn’t take much to save them — just an offer to foster them.
On the Facebook video thread there is a post that says with foster offer, these two dogs would be saved by Mutt Match LA. Just offering to help by taking one or both of these dogs into your home (if you live in the LA area) would save a life. You would not be responsible for the medical fees, just providing a safe and loving temporary home.
