One thing that’s difficult to figure out in choosing a Dog of the Day from the Cobb Animal Shelter website, is whether to focus on cute cheerful looking doggies who are more likely to get adopted, or sad, frightened dogs that might not have as much appeal, but are in need of a loving home so they won’t be frightened and sad.
So I’ve decided to divide both the Dog of the Day and the Cat of the Day into Happy and Sad categories. When looking at doggy facial expressions happiness or sadness is in the eye of the beholder, so your impression might be different.
The Cobb County Courier’s Dog of the Day in the sad dog category, selected from the Cobb Animal Shelter website, is a German Shepherd mix, about 6 years old.
He’s adoptable on December 21.
The following information on this potential family member is copied and pasted from the Animal Shelters website. To see the original text visit this link to the Animal Shelter Catalog.
Remember, in adopting a pet you are bringing a new family member into your household, so only do it if you are looking for a forever canine partner.
