Looking old beyond his tender years, SHADOW is heartbreaking. Abandoned at the ACC after a scuffle with his parent’s other resident dog, we can only imagine the life he lived under their care (or as we read it – lack thereof!). His poor ears were completely filled with black wax, his coat so ravaged by alopecia that the medical team stated the word “severe” not once, but TWICE. Shadow has clearly longed for love, care, & human kindness. Was it too much to ask? Apparently so.
Now he sits in DESPERATE need of an EXPERIENCED foster or #adopter to save his life. He is understandably scared, & the wounds he received from the other dog still hurt. NEEDS a quiet, calm, structured home where he can warm at his own pace to his new environment and family
