On August 25 2004, my mom walked into the South Central Shelter in Los Angeles to come and look at this little four-month-old Cattle Dog that was due to be euthanized that night.
I was in isolation and had been for a month - I was only four months old!!
When my mom came back into the isolation ward (I had kennel cough), I was in the lower cage - all I did was bark at her!! I wanted out. She thought I was the cutest thing with bat ears she had ever seen - and then she walked out.
She was only gone about 30 minutes and then all of a sudden a nice shelter lady came and took me out of the cage...and I was handed over to my new mommy who had leaky eyes!! She said she couldn't leave the shelter without taking me and she was crying while she said this!
I'm the luckiest cattle dog ever to have found my forever home with my mommy!!!
