Stunning senior shepherd – why doesn’t anyone want to give him a home?


A stunning, senior German shepherd has been sitting at a busy California animal control agency for weeks. Why doesn’t anyone want to give him a home? Gretzky is eight-years-old and still looks incredibly handsome – he has been at the Carson Animal Services facility in Gardena since March 15 and his looks, and demeanor, have not resulted in an adoption.

🚨 Shelter is Filling up! 🚨

Please take another look at Handsome GRETZKY, he has really beautiful energy and he’s been in the Shelter a MONTH!

This beautiful boy showed up with no tag or chip and he needs help, there are so many Shepherds needing help in the shelter. Please SHARE for his life, he’s SUCH a dreamboat and a FOSTER or ADOPTER would save him. Thanks!

GREAT ASSESSMENT!

Adding:

He went off to explore the yard, keeping to himself and showing no concerning behavior. He would occasionally engage with the other dogs and but preferred to be alone. He was easy to steer and would come to handler to solicit petting when corrected. His preferred playstyle is gentle/dainty and he is social with the other dogs. He will be available for public adoption with children middle school aged or older, Large dogs are OK.

Is it Gretzky’s age the problem? Is eight years old “too old” for him to be considered for adoption? This beautiful dog still has a lot of life in him – he deserves to be sharing his life with someone who will love and appreciate him. Please take a moment to share this article and help him find a loving new owner.

The runner came down to his level and called him over. He got up and came forward, approaching slow and cautiously. He had a low tail, soft eyes, slightly tensedbody posture and closed mouth. He began to grow uncomfortable as he sniffed the runner's hand and avoided eye contact and backed away from the front of the kennel. The runner stepped inside the kennel and placed the leash over him. He walked through the kennels nicely without pulling on the leash. He bypassed the other dogs barking on his way over tothe yard. He was easy to collar. Inside the catch pen, he had his ears up, open pant, neutral tail and neutral body posture. When he greeted the dogs, he began to bark at them and then anxiously pace. He was allowed into the yard, where he was quite anxious and ran around the yard in a hurried manner as he heavily panted. None of the other dogs bothered him, he was able to settle. He then roamed around the yard in a more mellow demeanor. He went off to explore the yard, keepingto himself and showing no concerning behavior. He would occasionally engage with the other dogs and but preferred to be alone. He was easy to steer and would come to handler to solicit petting when corrected. His preferred playstyle is gentle/dainty and he is social with the other dogs. He will be available for public adoption with children middle school aged or older, Large dogs are OK. #A5262533 My name is GRETZKY and I'm an approximately 8 year old male German Shepherd.
