Senior Dog Adopted, Then Returned To Animal Control One Hour Later For “Being Too Upset”

Everyone knows, or rather everyone should know, that it takes time for a newly adopted dog to acclimate to his or her new surroundings. Sadly, one senior dog in Gardena, California, wasn’t given time to settle in at his new home because the person who adopted him decided to take him back to the same animal control facility just one hour later.

Wally, a nine-year-old pit bull mix, is at the Carson Animal Services facility waiting for an upstanding person to take notice of him – someone who will give him a real chance to fit in. People who had been networking on Wally’s behalf were elated when they learned that he had been adopted this week. Those feelings of joy were squashed when the Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, wrote:

Not safe they returned him in less than an hour because they felt he was too upset about leaving the shelter. Please share he needs help now.

Please help Wally find a loving home (or reputable rescue agency) by sharing his adoption information.
