A volunteer went to visit Declan at the shelter and filmed their encounter. In the video, Declan was so terrified that when the volunteer tried to get him to leave his enclosure, he simply lay down and refused. He looked overwhelmed and utterly defeated - until he was brought outside.
Declan had to be carried outside due to his nervousness, but once he was no longer amidst the chaos of the shelter, he calmed down immensely. He just wants to be pet and loved - but he needs to be pulled from the shelter very soon.
Declan is good with other dogs and just wants a home to finally call his own. If you or anyone you know might be able to adopt this sweet boy, you can contact the San Bernardino City Animal Control at (909) 384-1304. Declan's ID number is A486404.
