This beautiful German shepherd named Cooper had been scheduled for euthanasia on September 15; somehow the City of San Bernardino Animal Services missed her, and she’s still alive. A shelter volunteer caught this amazing photo of the one-year-old dog begging for her life and who undoubtedly wants to live.
The volunteer writes:
there must be a reason she escaped the needle. Sometimes if they have a long list, they run out of time. let’s hope it slipped their notice that they missed her.
