Misty, STAFF FAVORITE, (A1028510, 4 year old pit mix) was brought in to the shelter on May 5th by an officer who found her chained, without food, without water. Emaciated. The claim against Misty was that, while chained up, she had severely attacked a small dog that came in to her yard. We can't know exactly what happened -- but we can certainly attest to the fact that she has never shown one moment of aggression towards any animal while at the shelter. Not a dog -- though she has been walked by many, day in and day out; not a cat or a kitten -- though she has walked past them as well. Junior, her ACT pal, would be happy to discuss her behavior if anyone has questions.
The South L.A. shelter has actually been a blessing for Misty. There she has finally known what it is to be loved. Junior and the other ACT's at the annex have showered her with attention, with devotion. Though they have saved her life from the hands of a horrible owner, we now need to save her life once again. Misty is red-listed (as of Thursday, June 18th) and has little time left. Regardless of how loving she is with everyone ; regardless of the fact that she is perfectly trained to sit, stay, etc; regardless of the fact that she is so full of joy -- she faces a fate we don't want to talk about.
Misty is a truly wonderful dog. Still trusting of people, though so horribly mistreated.
(213) 485-0117 or -0119.
And kindly let me know that you can rescue her. Junior (who will be happy to speak with anyone about Misty, his favorite dog) and the other ACT's want to know as well.
Thanks so much,
