When I woke up this morning to a slew of emails, I had the sinking thought, "it is going to be one of those days".
One of the days where there are multiple requests to feature dogs in need - multiple dogs who desperately need a chance.
How does one pick and choose a certain dog to feature? Trust me, it isn't easy.
But this one photo of a young, uniquely colored German shepherd a the City of San Antonio Animal Care Services facility touched my heart.
This dog is so frightened that he cannot stand.
He is so frightened that he cannot look at the camera.
This one, sad photo is all that he has to help him get out of the facility alive.
Unfortunately, there is absolutely no information provided for his profile. Nothing to indicate if he was a surrender or a stray.
Nothing that states "Loves to play ball" or "longs for affection".
All that we can see is fear.
He is still a puppy - life should be full of fun and new experiences right now. He should not be behind bars waiting to die.
He looks as if he could use a calm, reassuring person who has a soft voice and gentle hand.

Let me guess, he’s the negotiator type.
(What’s that? You have bacon, Boss? Tell you what. I’ll let you take one picture in exchange for five slices of bacon-—)
Want to know why there are so many potential pets there? I tried to navigate through their phone system and it is easier to do a root canal on yourself.
Their number is 210-207-4PET
I inquired about the dog. I think I am going to adopt it. It is $81.00 and it includes shots, tags and neutering.
I told you I don’t care if it gets this little puppy adopted. Some things are more important than others. I can assure you I know people are devious, but I have a real soft spot for animals.
Yeah, me too.
But pimps trying to profit from that soft spot tend to torque me off.
You two have made my day. Please let us know what happens.
The pimp may have tried to profit, but it appears he may have done some good. We have two people on this thread trying to adopt the pup.
Oh God Bless you!! thanks made my day... I am so happy!
Okay Andy... you know you are gonna have to keep us posted, right?
This thread needs to be updated once the puppy is in custody. Cute little fella too. Once in a good home he’ll come around. =)
“I inquired about the dog. I think I am going to adopt it. It is $81.00 and it includes shots, tags and neutering.”
Kudos to you sir.
Austin will be a stalwart, loyal friend and protector.
Congratulations to you both.
Keep us posted on his progress. I expect a FULL recovery.
What do you care if this person is posting stories like this?
Why the outrage?
Yes, please. I would love to send whoever gets the puppy a few dollars to help offset the adoption costs.
That picture is heartbreaking.
Good for you!
You are a stone-cold pain in the ass with your jumping on nearly every thread, questioning the intents of every poster.
Did you jump up and down and point your finger for the teacher at the kid that farted in your 4th grade elementary school class, also?
Fer Pete's sake, if you want to be a moderator, then just ask Jim...I'm sure he'll give you a chance.
'Cause something tells me that he finds you as big of a pain in the ass as the rest of us do.
Keep us updated! I hope this pup gets a good home soon!
Friendly reminder: be aware what you’re getting into with “rescue” pets. My 3yo daughter tried to hug a friend’s newly rescued dog, and it bit her in the face. Such situations do not end well.
I saw that on FB last night. That is one of the saddest pictures I’ve ever seen.
Thanks for bringing the link over here!
Actually not so much.
I adopted deceased FReeper Flyer's dog Mason when Flyer passed.
Bought a place in the country for Mason to live out his retirement.
I've pinged a few folks who know this to be true.
I'm a mean S-O-B, huh?
What does the other half look like to you? Very long-legged.
Rarely see white crop up on a GSD mix. Great Dane?
