A local animal shelter is holding an elderly German Shepherd after he was dumped by his owners, but his time there is running out.
"Poor fellow just needs a soft bed and a loving home to live out his remaining time," said a message from Gwinnett Animal Control, adding that the dog's "stray hold" is ending soon.
A veterinarian who examined the dog said he suffers from dysplasia, bone spurs and lumbar spondylosis, and that he is now on pain medicine.
The dog is said to be friendly and quite large. His animal ID number is 27699.
