Two poodles were abandoned at LAX this week after their owner told authorities that she couldn’t afford to pay their shipping fees home. The retiree was reportedly heading home overseas and decided it wasn’t worth it to pay the roughly $200 per animal it would cost to bring along her supposedly beloved companions. 

The two sibling dogs, Sorullo, 6, and Tulip, 3, were reportedly perplexed over the sudden lapse in ownership. “He was shy, a little nervous, probably wondering what’s going on,” reported KCAL9’s Juan Fernandez. Both dogs were taken to the West L.A. Animal Shelter, where one of them, Tulip, was quickly adopted. 

Sorullo, on the other hand, is still awaiting adoption. Fernandez, who visited the dog in the shelter, describes him as “a total lapdog. Perfect with families, with small children, or seniors.” If you’re in the L.A. area and seeking canine companionship, don’t hesitate to call the West L.A. Animal Shelter at 213-485-0494.
