Terrified Senior Doberman Dumped at High Kill Shelter Shivers in His Cage


Life at the high-kill Miami-Dade County Animal Services is no cakewalk to say and write the least. For one, no matter how much staff grows attached to a particular dog, all options to free kennel space are on the table, up to and including euthanasia. Ten-year-old senior Doberman pincher named Nino is facing that very predicament.


Nino was dumped at the high kill shelter by a cruel owner who told shelter staff that he was surrendering him because he simply needed to “move away.”


And just like that, Nino, who has shown a decade of loyalty, was now left to fend for himself. Facebook advocacy group Urgent Dogs Miami took to their Facebook page and wrote this about Nino,

“He was found shaking in his case and has barely any shares!”

A Pet Harbor listing for Nino reads,

“I am an unaltered male, black Doberman Pinscher mix. The shelter staff think I am about 10 years old. I have been at the shelter since Jun 30, 2016.”

Time is running out for Nino. In fact, it is nothing less than a miracle that he is alive right now, considering he has been at the shelter since June 2016. Shelter staff love Nino and want to give him every opportunity to find the forever home he so rightfully deserves. If you or someone you know is interested in rescuing Nino, please contact the Miami-Dade Animal Services at (305) 884-1101 and reference the shelter ID ID#A1077249.

Additionally, please share this story on Facebook or Twitter so we are closer to finding Nino the forever home he rightfully deserves. We have done it before and can certainly do it again.
