A very handsome fellow who is about 18 months old and appears to be a Kelpie mix. He is a beautiful red-gold with white chest patch and toes. He is absolutely terrified in the Shelter. We think he wants to trust, but his fear causes backsliding and he shows his fear again. He has not bitten anyone but we’re not sure he won’t. Sometimes, when out of the kennel, he seems almost normal so we know he has it in him. One of our volunteers has worked with him and given him the name ‘Hawking’ after physicist Stephen Hawking, because this boy is extremely smart. He came into Shelter on March 15. We Dog Rescue Coordinators really want to save his life if at all possible. THE NEED IS URGENT! Please call Jean at 839-3148 if you have any information about this dog or want to inquire about helping him. There is just something about this boy that makes us want to give him every chance in the world to make it out on all fours.
