Senior dog heartbroken after being adopted and then returned to shelter


A senior dog is heartbroken after someone adopted him from the Los Angeles County Animal Control (Carson) facility and then returned him. The eight-year-old dog, named Gonzo, had hope of happier days when an adopter chose him to be a companion…but those hopes were dashed when the same person brought him back.

On Friday, the Facebook page, Saving Carson Shelter Dogs, explained:

UPDATE! He was adopted and Returned a few days later because he did not get along with their other dog. He needs some help now, he is very sad to be back..
This handsome guy originally came in as a stray, had no tag or chip and he is really missing home. Please SHARE for his life, he’s SO special and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. Thanks!!

Saving Gonzo

Gonzo needs a helping hand to find his way to a loving and committed home. Please share his adoption information before it is too late.
