Heartbreaking Reality: Another young, good-looking German Shepherd’s difficulties in a shelter, with a grim future

UPDATE: Still listed with a video clip included

Keenan urgently needs our help. Tragically, his life is in jeopardy, but together, we can make a difference. This one-year-old dog currently resides at the Riverside County Animal Control and is displaying signs of severe kennel stress and unsocial behavior, which is especially challenging for intelligent and active breeds like German Shepherds. Unfortunately, due to overcrowding, there aren’t enough staff or volunteers to meet his mental and physical needs.

Can we please prevent this tragedy? Let’s share Keenan’s story to raise awareness. If you’re willing to provide a committed, long-term foster home, please reach out to the shelter. Adoption must be done in person, and fees for coded dogs are minimal. Keenan deserves a chance at a loving forever home.
