Faisel, reporting from Jordan wrote sad story after sad story about what happens there. It’s not unusual in Israel for individuals to undertake a canine someday after which go away him on the facet of the highway if it doesn’t work out. 

Luckily there’s a rising variety of shelters out there if you will discover them. See Diana’s Dogs in Bethlehem.
