The brown Rottweiler-mastiff mix that was abandoned on the side of Highway 50 in El Dorado County last week is up for adoption, according to the El Dorado Animal Shelter.
“Shelter staff call me ANDRE and I am a neutered male, brown brindle Rottweiler and Mastiff,” the shelter wrote on his online profile. “I am estimated to be 2 years and 6 months old.”
A witness told CHP they saw a white van slowing down on the highway near Greenstone Road. Somebody let out the dog and sped away around 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 11.
The officer that responded to the report said Andre was not injured. Andre was taken to the county animal shelter in Placerville that evening.
