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???

Diamond, a three year-old chihuahua that needs a good home. She appeared in my parents’ front yard in Gardena on May 11. My parents are elderly and can’t keep her but took care of her for a few days while my sisters and I tried to locate her owners (by asking around the neigborhood and posting flyers). We also took her to VCA Coast in Hermosa Beach where we found out she has a micro-chip and that she is three years old, her name is Diamond and she was originally from the Long Beach Animal Shelter. VCA Coast called the number from the micro-chip but the person answering the phone denied having a dog. Since my parents couldn’t keep her (they are elderly and had to fly to Hawaii on May 23) and my sisters and I already have multiple pets, Diamond was brought to the Long Beach Animal Shelter on May 16. We were told that Diamond would be kept there until May 30, at which time the Long Beach SPCA (next door to the shelter) would take her, providing they had room for her.
Meanwhile, we had spread the word about Diamond to co-workers and friends. One of my co-workers said she knew someone who was interested so, on Sunday, May 30, my sisters and I went down to the Long Beach SPCA and my sister “adopted” Diamond. Since she was already spayed and had had the required vaccines and shots, we paid the $125 fee and took her home that day. Unfortunately, my co-worker’s friend was unable to take Diamond. Another co-worker of mine has been taking care of Diamond but can no longer do it. We only have a few days to find a home for her.
If you can take Diamond in, please contact: Stan L. Cabotaje Phone: 310-527-4364 e-mail: scabotaje @aol.com
Can anyone help out with this Chihuahua that was just found today in a Venice neighborhood near Washington Blvd? He was found by an acquaintance of mine and is currently with her. She cannot keep him or foster him for very long. Hoping someone has some room for this little guy. She took him to the vet, he does not have a chip and he is not neutered though I think that she will handle that. If there are no foster homes available, is there any adoption group near the Venice area that would be willing to allow this little guy to join until he gets a home? It seems he was abandoned, no one is claiming him. Flyers were put up and the lady who has him asked around in the neighborhood. Please, if anyone can help, contact Candy or Ming @ email@example.com USING SUBJECT AS CHIHUAHUA or call Candy @ 310 821 4801
Please pass along and share. Any help is much appreciated!!!
