Devoted dog doesn’t want to leave owner while being surrendered


No time…no room…can’t keep – so many reasons, but none truly matter to the dog who is left behind. On May 12, a five-year-old German shepherd named “Hitch,” was walked into the San Bernardino City Animal Control, in California, and handed over to strangers.

A video was captured showing Hitch as he was being surrendered – in the short clip, it is readily apparent that Hitch is devoted to the person who has chosen, for one reason or another, to let him go.

After Hitch was surrendered, a networker shared his information on Facebook:
