~~I lost my dog after 14 years in December.. A month later my daughters were walking their dog and they found a very scared, skinny dog running in the middle of the street in a Long Beach neighborhood. Dried fesses stuck to his body, mange was evident and his bones were showing through his coat as if he were wearing the wrong size for his body. So sad. A boy stopped to help and was able to get a lease around his neck. The boy’s name isNoah. So that is what we named this starving, sad sack doggie. He was sent to the Animal Shelter and my daughter called and said we would adopt him.
I got him at the end of January. Below is a summary of what I know after two months. Sadly, I am unable to keep him. I am at a crossroads in my life and am satisfied that we saved his life (one day from being put down), but want to make sure the rest of his life is with someone that will love him every day. Please contact Sharon if you are interested firstname.lastname@example.org
