At the East Valley Animal Shelter in California, Simba was brought in by his owner and surrendered on Wednesday afternoon. Maybe Simba thought he had been going for a ride to have a fun adventure with the person he loved?
Sadly Simba’s experience was not to be fun, and instead the look of confusion on the dog’s face was heartbreaking to watch. Moments later, the reality of a loud shelter with no one there to love and comfort him hit home.
“The owner told me that he was his brother’s dog and the brother left the state for work and left the dog with him. The guy said he worked full time and he went to school full time. By the looks of the dog’s ribs showing I think he was being neglected. This was just the sweetest dog clinging to the man. The man had to actually push Simba through the front door dog sliding with tail tucked. Please some loving person come for him soon!!,” a volunteer at the shelter posted on social media.
My name is Simba and I am a neutered male, tan American Staffordshire Terrier.
The shelter thinks I am about 7 years old. I weigh approximately 60 pounds. I have been at the shelter since Dec 30, 2020
