Meet Snapple (male adult Pom )who was rescued from Santa Barbara County Animal Services
This guy had been 'free roaming' after unkind humans reportedly 'gave him away' and he kept returning to them. They say he is 'free roaming' and does not belong to them anymore, nor do they care for him. He had been hanging around his former home, and sleeping in a field. Apparently, these unkind humans also have another dog, which was found tied up with shoestrings in the yard. Animal Services allowed them to keep the tied up dog, and took the Pom, deeming him 'aggressive' due to him trying to bite when they attempted to catch him in the field with a 'catch-pole.' He was set for euthanasia due to this.
One of our Santa Barbara volunteers we work closely with, assessed him a couple of days ago at the pound, and he was scared. She sat in his kennel, and in just a few minutes he jumped into her lap and started licking her hand. Despite this dog being terribly neglected and scared to death, he responded kindly when given the chance.
Since he was set for euthanasia, She decided to pull him....
We will update more once he sees our vet.
