Unique German shepherd too frightened to look at the camera

San Antonio, TX

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.

P.S.

I admit you did good this time since the puppy was adoped.

I do believe many of you posts are sick never the less.

Wonderful news! I wonder if his new owners are Freepers. If so, I hope they update us on how he is doing.

Well... There is good news and bad news regarding Austin.

I went to the ACS today to inquire about adopting Austin.

The first is the good news. Austin was adopted yesterday. The bad news, It wasn’t me who adopted him.

However I did see a 2 year old golden Lab/Retriever mix that I want and will now have to spend the rest of the day convincing my wife that our Golden needs a pal.

Very strange thread in certain respects. Hope the dog hasn’t noticed.

You are a good man, EQAB, so I fairly certain you married a good woman ; ) Best wishes on getting that 2nd Golden home safe and sound.

May God bless and keep you all.

Don’t cry ‘lil fella.

You ought to be used to making a fool out of yourself by now.

Gunner, one of your little fan-boys is jealous.

Well dude for the record, I do think when it comes to a blog entry about adopting a poor scared dog... MAYBE you might not wanna do the BlogPimp Killer thing.

Think you made a really poor judgement call on this one.

But when I see someone comin' after you and Eaks, I generally will stand up for ya first, THEN find out if you are right or wrong. Several freepers I do that with.

Note please that no contact info is provided unless one clicks the blog.

That sort of defines the intent.

Just my opinion.

Subject matter, my man, subject matter. If someone wanted to come in and kill blog-pimp police, this would certainly be the way to give the group a bad name.

The way to handle ones like these are to simply pull the info off the blog and POST IT RIGHT HERE, so as to A) Thwart their (possible) intent of driving traffic there, B) Look MORE caring then the poster, and C) Not be fooled into giving yourself a black eye.

Play chess, brotherman — NOT checkers.
