Downey, CA - Tigger, Male, 12 year old, dumped because he's "too old"....

Forwarded Today (03/14/2012) - Subject: [RescueSeniorDogs] 12 yr old shepherd at Downey, CA shelter

URGENT - Senior Alert - 12 yr. old German Shepherd Tigger needs a home

Tigger is a 12 yr. old OWNER SURRENDER who was dumped on 3/9. Let's work on getting him out and into a home where he belongs. Please notify any senior rescues, and all other networkers and rescuers who you think can take in Tigger.

A lady called the shelter and was told he was only turned in because he is old!

The pictures this shelter uses won't help Tigger; Looking at this I was wondering if this dog was still breathing!??!

This is a horrible high-kill shelter, I wish the bitch who brought him in was in one as well.

since name-calling does nothing to help the dog, what's the point. just more bad juju.

bless your heart bud, i WISH for some help for you, and sooner rather than later.

i wish there were a way to get a dog that size to florida. i'd take him in a heartbeat. i had a cocker shipped from LA about 4 or 5 yrs ago, he was about this age, he also passed away recently at a very advanced age, and it cost about $300.00. i can't even begin to imagine what a german shepherd would cost to ship that far.

poor old fella, wish i were closer.

I'm entitled to express my feelings anyway I wish, you don't see the point than fine, I'm not you, I express myself how I see fit, I won't knock you for not saying anything.

Even though it won't help the dog, the person that turned him in is a POS that doesn't deserve the air she breathes.

I hope this guy gets a second chance and can live out his golden years with love and happiness.

That poor dog. He has a giant lump behind his ear. I hope it's just matted hair. And I sincerely hope someone takes him out of there and gives him a bath and a soft bed, if only for a little while.
