Owners tell shelter that they don’t want their dog back – now he needs help


On May 10, a handsome dog was picked up as a stray and taken to the Baldwin Park Animal Services facility in California. Fortunately, the dog, named “Otto” had a microchip which allowed shelter staff to contact his owner.

Rather than expressing relief and happiness that Otto had been found, the dog’s owners told the shelter employees that they didn’t want Otto back – now he is alone and in need of help.

On Monday, a woman who volunteers her time photographing the homeless dogs at the shelter posted a picture of Otto, along with a bit of information:

Otto is a very friendly 3 yr old male black/white Siberian Husky came to the shelter as a stray on 5/10/17. He is microchipped and his family was notified on 5/11/17. They don’t want him back. Otto weighs 80 lbs.

Otto is undoubtedly confused about his current situation – nobody that he knows will be coming to his rescue. Please share his adoption information and help him find a new, committed owner to take him home.
