Elderly dog sent to the pound after his owner died

An elderly dog, 12 years of age, finds himself stuck at the dog pound after the death of his owner. On Monday, Houston & Harris County Animal Volunteers posted photos of the senior dog, writing:


“Archibald” is trying to figure out why his world has been turned upside down. He was very loved and cared for by his owner, but sadly, his OWNER DIED and now he’s at the shelter.

Archibald is described as a 12 pound Yorkshire terrier. He could use the help of strangers to find a new, loving owner. Please help him out by sharing his adoption information.
