Heartless owner dumps 13-year-old senior at animal control because he was “low energy”

Life is filled with so many ups and downs, twists, and turns, that nowadays, it is hard to tell the difference between the ones who say they love you, and your actual enemy. For one 13-year-old dog named Blacky, the betrayal is all too real. His owner didn’t want him anymore because his medical condition was growing worse. And so one day, he gathered all of his belongings and drove him to the Los Angeles County Animal Control - Palmdale (LACC), where he now languishes behind awaiting an uncertain future.

The LACC is not exactly the place where hope and love abound. The dogs in the facilities are given just a few weeks, and sometimes even just days to find forever families before the unthinkable happens: euthanasia.

According to the staff at the shelter, the following is known about Blacky thus far:

“His owners stated he was kept primarily outdoors, is partially housebroken, is disinterested in small children, good in the car and on a leash, does not try to escape, and is low energy. It was not known how he is with other animals. He was surrendered because the owner was moving. “Blacky” does have trouble walking and his owners stated he has bad arthritis.”

Unfortunately, Black has until tomorrow to find a home, before he is put on the “euth list” to free up kennel space, according to my source at the shelter. Fidonation, if you or someone you know is interested in giving this precious pup a forever home, please contact the Palmdale Animal Care Center at (661) 575-2888 and reference the shelter ID #A4544000.
