Eleven-year-old German Shepherd mix Grizzly is looking for a home.

Most of the animals who end up at the pound have a sad story, and one elderly dog surrendered to a Maryland shelter has one sadder than most.

Grizzly, an 11-year-old German shepherd mix, was turned over to the Montgomery County Animal Shelter when his family came upon hard times and lost their home.

A loocal rescue group has taken Grizzly in, and they are actively looking for a new home for the dog. Handlers say Grizzly is trained. He likes kids and other dogs, and is an all-around good boy.

For more information on Grizzly visit Reach Out Rescue's website.
