Senior dog left with broken heart after her family surrendered her to shelter

A senior dog recently had her heart broken. Mala, who is 10-years-old, was surrendered by her family on August 3. Today, the Rottweiler mix is sitting alone in a kennel run at the Baldwin Park Animal Services facility in California.

Look no further than Mala’s expressive eyes to see her sadness – it is clear that the loss of her family has taken an emotional toll. Without a doubt, Mala is lonely, confused and frightened. Undoubtedly, she is waiting for her people to realize their mistake and come back to take her home.

But no one is coming to save this senior dog – right now, she is relying on the kindness of strangers to be saved. Please help Mala find a new family by taking a moment to network her adoption information.

    disgraceful. Too many people getting dogs and thinking they are toys. If you aren’t in it for life DON’T GET A DOG!
