Terrified Shepherd on Death Row in Texas Because Owner Is Sick

THIS IS BABY Zip, a German shepherd mix, is terrified. His body language speaks volumes. His face is turned away from the camera, his tail is tucked tightly to his body...he literally looks like he wants to curl into himself and disappear.

Dear Jesus, I humbly come to you asking you, to please have Mercy on Baby Zip's life! You know I am not too proud to beg! Zip is alone now, his owner cannot care for him any longer. I ask that you make it possible for someone--a sincere-down-to-earth-dog-lover--to step forward and take Zip under their wing. I feel favor coming over Zip as I type this! I know our Father does not want Zip to be put down. In your sweet name, the sweetest name I know, amen!! In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, please breathe on Zippers!! Thank you, Jesus!! Thank you so much for posting, Kelly!! I pray that my prayer works!!

Shared on Twitter. I see today is the day. I pray this beauty has been rescued. God help us all if we don't stop killing his animals. We can do better than this. Thanks Kelly

A kill-shelter is never the answer, no matter how sick you are!

I read the comments after the article and it looks like Teresa Vincent pulled Zip...she says he is 'fine' but cries a lot...he misses his 'owner'...Teresa is trying to find and talk to the 'owner'...

Noted - so utterly heartbreaking - please let it be that he has been rescued and given the kind loving home he desperately needs. Cannot understand humans, I don't care whether you are sick, you don't just give up your animals. If I am sick, believe me, I will make a plan.
