Rob Thomas on Abandoned Dog: 'This Is Just Heartbreaking'

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Earlier today Rob Thomas highlighted the sad tale of a dog with no name, just a number. He wrote, “this is just heartbreaking. hope she finds a good home for the holidays.”

He then linked to the story of a one-year-old terrier who was surrendered to the Carson Animal Care and Control in Gardena, California. As Hearts for Hopefuls points out, while some dogs are outgoing and can handle the noise and strange smells at a shelter, others become terrified. Unfortunately, the dogs who don’t look happy or immediately want to lick a stranger’s face are often overlooked, and eventually euthanized.

This pup has just lost her family, doesn’t understand why she is there and is frightened. She’s just one example of many like her.

Next time you’re at the shelter, (or right now if you want to adopt this gal) look at all the dogs and take a bit of time to get to know them. Ask the shelter volunteers which dog would make a great companion but doesn’t get picked because he or she is frightened.

As Thomas said, we hope she finds a home for the holiday. She’s been at the shelter for eight days. Will you be her hero?
