These two beauties stand forgotten and abandoned by all who loved them when they were puppies. They are now facing death at the crowded Los Angeles shelter, in a cage at the last row on the end. What is most heartbreaking is that they love each other and find comfort in each other's company. What if one is taken to die before the other?
They were dumped at the shelter by someone who said that they were "strays". They are such friendly, social dogs that you know they belonged to someone once. Blanca "talks", she makes cute funny sounds similar to those dogs we've all seen who say, "oowhoo wuv you, " on television. Bridget just beamed from the moment we took her out of her cage and pet her to the time we had to force them back in their cages.
The shelter has Bridget listed as 10 years old [Blanca is listed as 6]. I think Bridget is younger. There was no vet avail so her listed age stands at 10 years old, most likely meaning a death sentence. They are beautiful stunning dogs in an overcrowded, overwhelmed shelter [there was a dog dumped every 9 minutes last Saturday].
My name is not on these dogs. If you are interested in rescuing call the shelter ASAP
When I took Bridget to see if there was a vet available who would reconsider the initial age assessment, she touched noses with Blanca as if to say, "I'll be back. Don't worry." But the next time she is led down the hallway to the vet she won't ever return.
