Calm, quiet and overlooked – senior dog overlooked and forgotten at shelter


Just another pit bull…not showy, not unique. A beautiful dog wrapped up in a brown paper wrapper – overlooked and bypassed by visitors at the Los Angeles County Animal Control (Lancaster) facility.

But inside, eight-year-old George is beautiful, and sweet. Described by an advocate as a “calm and quiet” dog who loves affection. George has been patiently waiting for someone to take notice of him since May – and he is now one of the facility’s longest residents.

LOS ANGELES ***PLEASE SHARE**GEORGE 💙 #A5368784 8yo male 64lbs. One of the longest residents at the shelter (87 days waiting!). He’s calm and quiet and loves affection. Out in the play yard with other dogs he offered soft, calm greetings. He curiously approached all dogs and spent a few seconds with each sniffing their bodies. His energy level is low, he did not engage in play but did walk around with the other dogs. He solicited attention from the handlers when near them. He was calm, friendly and tolerant with the dogs. Good boy. Shelter is requiring calm dogs for this chill babe. PLEASE 🙏🏻 share, tag and comment to help him be SEEN. He’s available for adoption or rescue at the County of Los Angeles – Lancaster Animal Care Center 💻 if you have general questions about him, call (661)940-4191. If you want to adopt: please email to schedule and appointment and meet him and scoop him up! Be sure to include his #A above and your phone number! EMAIL ADDRESS: ACCLancaster@AnimalCare.LAcounty.gov Please be patient for a response.
