Here is the latest update on “Pheonix” from the Daily Breeze:
Many times as a rescuer, you are at the shelter and by chance, you get the story of a dog who is turned in by his owner, or the details of where a dog was found and what his or her story is…However, most times they are nameless animals, with only an intake ID number, where we can only guess and speculate about their past.
But meet Luke.
This one photo of him tells the story of a thousand words.
The story of heartache, despair, abuse and neglect.
His ears have been completely chopped off, he has scars all over his face and neck. He is just so scared.
He was due to be euthanized today, but Linda, a shelter volunteer has begged for a few more days for him. The shelter does not have his picture on their website, so he is like a ghost in the shelter with no chance of being saved. But this is chance, here he is, let’s tell him that he is not forgotten, that he has a future, and that we think he is beautiful!
His heart wrenching past has not broken his spirit. He is the most beautiful soul ever. He is full of love. Has lots of scars, no ears at all. His back legs look a little weak. He is very thin and he is about 7 years old.
Tonight he was laying on the cold concrete floor so Linda gave him a bed and blanket and he curled up in ball and wagged his tail at her.
There is another Downey volunteer that is willing to pay for food and medical for him.
He needs a rescue with a foster to take him IMMEDIATELY or he WILL DIE without ever knowing the simple pleasure of a family.
Please, I am on my knees begging for mercy for this angel, who has never know love, goodness or kindness till he was blessed and embraced by Linda and other dedicated Downey Volunteers who are fighting for him.
Despite his past, he is full of forgiveness and love, and this is one dog that deserves to live out his life surrounded by the love of a family that cherishes him.
As my young son Wyatt says, Luke needs a collar with a name tag so that he knows he is safe and has a family who loves him.
Who can give him this beautiful, priceless gift???
