by No Dogs Allowed
Note: The two dogs described below face an imminent death unless you or some other kind soul applies to adopt them.
Rescue Gem #1: “Dan” is described as being “cantankerous” and having many issues, which may explain why he’s been up for adoption since 2004. Actually, Dan has been adopted four times in the last nine years, but his multiple “forever families” have always returned him. Why is that?
Could it be because Dan hates people? That’s right, Dan the misanthropic mutt hates adults and children equally, and has never bonded with any human. Danny Boy makes it clear he is definitely not man’s best friend!
Or perhaps it’s because Dan hates other animals as much as he despises people. Dan has to be kept isolated from other dogs at the shelter in which he resides because he’s such a troublemaker.
Or perhaps it’s because of Dan’s incorrigible habit of baying at the moon all night long, which makes it difficult for some people to sleep.
Or maybe it’s because Dan exhibits a Houdini-like ability to escape from locked cages and doors. He’s broken loose from his shelter twice before, and has been hit by a car at least once. Isn’t that precious?
Please consider adopting this rescued diamond-in-the-rough by contacting Melanie Dodson at the Highland County Humane Society in Hillsboro, Ohio today. You’ll be so glad you did!
Rescue Gem #2: ”Jones” is the one pit bull I would consider adopting because of his extreme bow-leggedness. With Halloween around the corner, I would love to dress up Jones as a cowboy! Wouldn’t he look great in a pair of chaps?
Alternatively, Jones could come in handy for those of you who like to play croquet. If you ever find yourself short of a wicket, no problem – just use Jones’ legs!
Besides being extremely bow-legged, Jones is also anti-social and shies away from people. He was found cowering under a car in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles last year when he was rescued, and still hasn’t warmed up to humans.
The good news is that straightening Jones’ curvy gams may be possible, with “experimental” surgery that is estimated to cost around $8,000. And, oh yeah…since the surgery is experimental, there’s no guarantee it will work. But who can put a price tag on a dog’s happiness? Certainly not I!
If your heart is as big as your wallet, please consider adopting Jones by contacting Sasha Rose with Love Leo Rescue in Los Angeles.
I must stop writing now, because I’m getting teary-eyed at the thought of these two fur-babies finding forever homes. God Bless everyone who gives these precious pooches a second chance at life!
