If there's one thing that infuriates us, it is irresponsible pet owners -- and irresponsible pet owners certainly came to mind when we heard the story of sweet Jack (ID# A0918219) here. He was dropped off at the East Valley animal shelter with the explanation that he wasn't playful enough!
"Jack is a shy guy, but gets along well with other dogs and people alike," says Valerie Markloff, New Hope program coordinator at the shelter. "This little guy loves to give kisses and loves to have his head scratched." Sounds like a dream come true to us (but then again, maybe our dogs are a little too playful).
Jack is a 1-year-old dachshund mix who's available for adoption now at the East Valley shelter, located at 14409 Vanowen Street in Van Nuys. More information is available by calling 888-4LAPET1 with his ID number.
