Gordo immediately made a lasting impression on the volunteers at Floyd County Animal Shelter; the black and white bull dog mix was shaking and trembling with fear as his owners surrendered him to an unknown fate this past week. Gordo is a dog who has cried because he has been abandoned by the very humans he once called his family.
Allegedly Gordo was surrendered because “he ate his doghouse.” Don’t dogs frequently chew out of boredom? Was Gordo given the appropriate attention and training he deserved? Does chewing deserve a death sentence?
Sadly Gordo’s story is not unique. Too many owners treat these tender souls as disposable property. Young, well-behaved dogs are too often surrendered to animal shelters that euthanize healthy pets because of overcrowded conditions.
Good canine citizens don’t necessarily just happen; our roles as pet parents dictate we help our four-legged companions learn the basics of acceptable behavior with patience and kindness.
And now #13D-1165 is on borrowed time, but he has captured the hearts of hundreds of animal lovers on Facebook who are hoping to raise the needed funds to help an approved rescue help Gordo find a new life.
