Woman’s heart broken when dog arrives at shelter looking defeated and lost

A stray puppy came at the City of San Bernardino Animal Services appearing defeated and forlorn. Lois Chisholm, a rescue worker, never imagined her heart would be broken again. “Just when I thought my heart couldn't be broken any further, I see a pic like this,” Lois posted on her Facebook page. “His expression and body language speak volumes... We don't know their backgrounds, but the sadness and defeat in their eyes is palpable. Shelter dogs are just like your own cherished pet. They only want to be loved.”

I am a white and brown Pit Bull Terrier mix boy. Shelter workers estimate my age to be around six years old. I've been a resident of the shelter since May 5, 2021.

If I am not claimed, I may be available for adoption on May 11, 2021, at the end of my stray holding term.  Call San Bernardino City Animal Control at (909) 384-1304 for further information about this animal.
