Sometimes some dogs just don't work out as Service Dogs. Despite everyone's best intentions either the training doesn't take, a dog won't alert when needed on a seizure or the owner can't handle the animal any longer.
We were recently contacted by the The City of Manassas Animal Adoption Center in Virginia because they received a female one-year-old white German Shepherd Dog wearing one of our United States Service Dog Registry tags. We immediately checked our registry and found that the animal was not turned in by the original owner. As per our policy, we forwarded the information to the owner of record in case there was a mistake; giving the original owner the opportunity to respond if they so wished. The original owner can't take care of the animal any longer.
We want to help find a good home for this dog and we are reaching out to our community to spread the word about this animal. In addition to this blog we will be sending out alerts on Twitter and posting these pictures in our Flickr account. If you're on Twitter, please retweet us.
If you know of anyone who may be able to claim this dog, please contact The City of Manassas Animal Adoption Center as soon as possible. According to the Animal Adoption Center, if this dog is not claimed she may be put down.
