Help: Neighborhood dog roaming free for years captured by animal control


In West Covina, California, an abandoned dog described as gentle, had been a member of the neighborhood for many years. He lived at the local park and cautiously wandered around the area – no one knows for sure how he ended up as a stray.

Some residents say the dog had been roaming free for almost 15 years. Concerned friends and kind neighbors left bowls of food and water for him at the park; he became known as the “neighborhood dog.” For many years, the fluffy yellow dog was able to elude capture – very clever he was and never let anyone get too close no matter how much they tried.

On Monday, animal rescuer John Hwang asked his friends and followers on social media for help with the dog. Somehow he couldn’t elude animal control officers last week, and he is waiting at the Baldwin Park Shelter for help from his friends.
