The plight of the plain, brown dog.
This was posted yesterday by a longtime volunteers who networks dogs at North Central:
"When I went to take photos at the shelter, one of the workers said to me, 'There is this sweet dog that we all love - do you think you could help her get out? She doesn't stand a chance.'Such a nice girl. Rescue her today!
He led me to a cage with two beautiful jindos who had been picked up as strays. The fly strikes on their ears meant they had probably been tied up outside, neglected and sad. The shelter worker told me that the smaller one was being bullied; she was so sweet and shy and scared.
When we took her out of her cage, she was so pretty, like a little fox with beautiful almond-shaped eyes. She is obviously very stressed at the shelter and not eating well - when I offered her a chicken treat that almost no dog can resist, she smelled it, but was too stressed to take it. She kissed the shelter worker on the cheeks several times, though. She's about 2 years old; sweet, submissive, and affectionate. She's getting very skinny and needs to get out now.
