found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
A lady called me and said she drove to work each day by a house where there was a young dog chained to a tree with no shelter. It had been raining for 2 wks straight, a veritable downpour and had become quite chilly. I drove by the house, (still raining) and saw the dog. By that time, we had over 12 inches of rain and the woman said she knew the dog had been out there for at least 10 days in that condition. She was just sitting, the chain wrapped around the tree so that she could not move – no food. I called the police and they came and tried to get someone to come to the door, but they would not. So, I called the police chief and said I’m not leaving this dog to stay here another nite in this rain. He told his deputy to seize the dog and take it to the pound. When we walked over to take her off the chain, we heard the most horrific, heart rending howl and looked over and behind the house, sitting on an even shorted chain was a white pit bull. When he saw us getting Cansu to take her away, I believe he was so desperate that he “screamed” to get our attention. This dog was so hunched over it was unbelievable, as tho he were trying to pull into his own body. He was skin and bones. We followed the police to the vet clinic (also the city pound) to see about the dogs. We got them dry and fed and seen after. Cansu was not in such terrible shape, just a bit underweight and soaked to the bone. Noah, on the other hand, was pitiful. He weighed 35#, and should have been double that. Even after the horrible treatment from the owners, he is a very sweet and gentle soul. When I approached his kennel that day, he came to the gate and laid his head against the wire and just looked at me with sad eyes, as if to say, what is going to happen to me? (In 10 days, he gained 9 #, so it was a clear case of neglect and starvation). Cansu is a gorgeous color and is a happy young lady now. They both love treats, which I take them about every other day and take them out to walk. If you have any suggestions regarding Noah, I’m open to listening. I must be so very careful that he gets the right placement, with a caring and loving person who is not prejudiced against his breed. The forgiveness of dogs, after having been treated so badly, is a testament to their nature. Anyway, hence the names, Cansu (water of life) and Noah (who survived the flood). BTW, the police issued a warrant for the woman’s arrest. Maybe justice will prevail and she will rot in jail for a long time.
Well, we are located in Springhill , La. about 60 miles northeast of Shreveport , La. We do not have a shelter, our rescue has a few foster homes and if there is no foster available, we have to board the dogs at our vet clinic. (Costly!!!)
