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
Lucy, Champ and Luke are all purebred Papillions we bought in 2004. Lucy is the youngest and the smallest, about 8 lbs. Champ is about 6 mos older than Lucy and 6 mos younger than Luke and is about 18 lbs. Luke is the oldest and weighs about 22 lbs. Due to some health issues in our family we can no longer provide the level of attention we think these guys should have.
Lucy is very active and loves to play catch. She is very happy and outgoing. She does not seem to realize she is a small dog and has stood up to dogs much larger, always making friends in the end. We have hardwood floors and she once wagged her tail so hard she fell over!
Champ comes from champion blood lines and he clearly has good breeding as seen by his role in the group. When we brought Lucy home she was just 3 lbs. We set her in her basket when she got tired and Champ climbed in next to her and put his right, front leg over her. Later on when she could not make it down a stair champ picked her up by the rough of her neck and carried her. Lucy was squirming all the way. Champ loves to run and play at the dog park and to tussle with Luke.
Luke is the most patient dog. Lucy will be pulling on his tail to get him to play and Luke is very even tempered with her antics. Luke loves to have his tummy rubbed and enjoys playing with both Lucy and Champ. All dogs are trained to walk on a leash and do their business outside. They are socialized both with people and with other dogs. Once Champ got out of the back yard and we found him sitting beside the gate, which had closed, waiting for us when we got home.
These guys have been spayed and neutered, have all their shots, and have had good care from our vet. They are very friendly even when smaller children may be a bit rough. They are located in Manhattan Beach, California.
If you are interested in these sweet babies, please call or email me Christie Garvey (310) 560-6081 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
