TO BE KILLED 6/8/19
"I'M SCARED BUT CAN YOU BLAME ME?" Red doesn't know where he is and he isn't familiar with any of the faces or scents at his temporary new home. The only scent he's certain of is fear and it isn't only him. It's all of the other dogs around him too. Like most dogs, Red is a pretty smart dude and he knows something isn't right at this place and he's hoping to get out of there before something really bad happens. He's trying to do his best but he's a little scared. Thank dawg for the awesome volunteers who managed to get a cute pic of him to get his story out there so other dog lovers will know his plight. Right now, Red is out of time and he desperately needs one of those dog lovers to consider helping him out. One whose experienced and dedicated so Red can have the time he needs to re-acclimate and understand that the bad times are behind him. Please help share this handsome brindle boy before it's too late.
