Jordy was only a little over two months when his family has decided they no longer want him to be part of their life anymore once and for all. And so, they packed up some of his favorite toys, his favorite blanket and some food and drove him one hot California afternoon to the Carson Animal Shepherd in Gardena, California to surrender him.
The young pup, barely 2 months old, did not fare well. He was in extreme shock because of the sudden betrayal that his little body can’t get rid of the little shockwaves of grief that literally overwhelms him. According to a source in the shelter, Jordy had immediately shut down emotionally after he was given up.
The little German Shepherd only lifts his tiny head occasionally to eat and take small sips of water. It was all he can do to distract himself from the shock and the pain of being left alone.
Getting left behind by his family, however, was not the hardest challenge Jordy had to face. The moment he was left in the shelter, his time was running out. This is because in the event Jordy the young Shepherd can’t find a forever home in the coming weeks, he needs to put down. The Carson Animal Shepherd already has problems with overcrowding and they only have a limited source. Putting down Jordy is a risk they have to take in case he stays for a long time to free valuable kennel space.
A Petharbor listing has been made for young Jordy. It reads: “My name is Jordy and I am described as a male, black and tan German Shepherd dog. The shelter thinks I am about 9 weeks old.”
At his young age, Jordy shouldn’t be thinking about facing a hard life, crying himself to sleep every night. He should be out in the open, running and living life as a young pup filled with hugs and kisses from loving parents who cares for him as deeply as they would with their own children.
Instead, Jordy’s only solace from the pain is a cold concrete slab and some of his chewed up toys.
Nonetheless, according to recent comments from a Facebook video, Jordy was fortunately adopted and is now hopefully with a loving family. Still, the Carson Animal shelter has dogs on their Urgent list and if not adopted, will have to be put down.
