Adopt-a-Pet: Bingo the terrier mix [Updated]
Bingo (ID #A1015244), a male terrier mix available for adoption at the L.A. Department of Animal Services' South L.A. shelter, is in need of a second chance -- and a good grooming session!
Breed: Terrier mix
Age: About 9 years Weight: 14 pounds
About Bingo: This poor guy has already been through the shelter system at least once; he was adopted previously and lived for a time with a well-meaning owner who became unable to care for him due to health problems. Bingo's owner reluctantly returned him to the South L.A. shelter on Christmas Eve.
Bingo is friendly but a bit shy, and would probably benefit greatly from having his numerous mats removed and getting his curled-under toenails trimmed to allow him to walk more comfortably. Because he's already neutered, he can go home with his new owner immediately upon adoption.
For more information: Meet Bingo in person at the South L.A. shelter, 3612 11th Ave.; watch a video that shows off his sweet personality; or call (888) 4LAPET1 with his ID number to learn more.
[Update 1/5/2011: Bingo has been adopted; congratulations, Bingo!]
