Dog of the Week: Sha Sha

Sha Sha (14328825) is a schnauzer-type mix that was surrendered to the shelter because now that she’s 12 years old, her owners no longer have time for her.

Poor Sha Sha is clearly missing her family! She had lived with children and other dogs, so she’s quite lonely here in a kennel all by herself. According to her former owner, Sha Sha is crate trained and loves to go for walks.

She’s energetic for a old girl, but also likes to just lay by your feet. She has some minor hair loss due to fleas and her fur is a bit matted.

This poor senior girl deserves to be loved again. Seniors decline quickly at the shelter and deserve a chance to live out their golden years- Sha Sha needs rescue ASAP!
