Alone, Scared and Starving
This is Cilantro or Cilly. She is a female German Shepard. Probably 1-2 years old. I found her hiding
underneath a car in Lincoln Heights on Sunday, October 3rd. She was filthy, hungry covered with fleas
and so dehydrated her fur felt crunchy and brittle when you touched it. I spent about 10 minutes
coaxing her out from under the car she balled herself up under. Once I did she very cautiously poked
her head out, crawling up to me on her belly to sniff my hand and take the dog cookie I was offering.
Once the cookie was recieved she cautiously came up to me and laid her head on my lap.
Cilantro is currently being cared for by myself and a group of my friends in Lincoln Heights. We make
sure that eats at least 3 meals a day, in order to get her weight back up, that she always has plently
of drinking water and that she receives all the attention and play-time she can handle.
