The sweet dog was very receptive to staff members as they cut him from the plastic bag and wrapped him up in a blanket. When asked if Peewee was injured or might be prone to accidents, the family who surrendered him said no - meaning there was no reason for him to be in a bag.
The shelter staff were all very upset by Peewee's condition. Maria Sanchez of the SBCAC wrote on her Facebook page, "He's never known love from a family or a soft place to lay his head. He's in his final years, who will be his angel?"
