In Laredo, Texas, a frantic puppy tried to put “his brakes on” as he looked back at his family while a staff member at the shelter dragged him away.
In a heartbreaking video on Saturday, posted on the Laredo, TX Dogs Begging for Help, the surrendered nine-month-old Boxer had been loving and friendly when he arrived at the shelter. His family surrendered their grandfather’s dog because they were moving. Sadly it didn’t take long for the astute pooch to realize this wasn’t a good place to be left behind.
Check out his heartbreaking video:
ADOPTIVE INTEREST…Surrendered Boxer or Boxer mix, loving, friendly, only 9 months old, owners moving/can't take grandpa's dog…this poor dog doesn't know what is happening, but knows it's not good. Laredo, TX city shelter. He was all happy when brought in, playful, loving…and then realized he was being left behind, in this very dangerous place for dogs.NOT AVAILABLE FOR ANY HELP UNTIL THURSDAY. All dogs must go through a 3-day hold period (not including weekends) before any adoption or rescue offer will be accepted. But…those offers need to come at that point (in this case, Thursday–and he will still be rescue only at that point, unless and until moved up to adoption kennels), because they also don't have to be held after 3 days and can be killed.

All dogs are required to stay for a three-day-hold period (not including weekends) before any adoption or rescue offer will be accepted. At that time, he will be assessed for behavior. It is hoped an adoption offer can be realized quickly – this dog can be euthanized at anytime beyond that date.
The address for the Laredo shelter is 5202 Maher Avenue and the number is 956-625-1860. The shelter opens on Monday at 8:00 am. Please ask for Amanda or Jessica when you call. The shelter may not tell you anything on Monday; they will not do any Snap testing (needed for any dog to exit the shelter) before Thursday, which is the first day he will be released from hold.
