I LET HIM HURT ME -- I DIDN'T EVEN CRY OUT!!!
NOW MY COLLAR IS ONE OF BANDAGES.
Roman (A1075340, neutered, sharpei/pit mix, red-listed on 11/15 and needs out immediately) was attacked by another dog -- the day before he was supposed to join us at Best Friends -- the day before he would undoubtedly have been rescued, his life spared. Instead, he suffered at the jaws of another who refused to let go of his ear. Teeth sunk in, blood poured out. But, Roman didn't fight back, his strength of character, his gentle nature, held firm.
How can this sad-eyed, trusting soul now lose his life for something he didn't do? The vet staff spared him in the hopes that we could find someone to have pity, to have love for this boy whose family lost their home and brought him to the shelter -- another big brown dog without a chance. His bandages will fall off in time, his ear will heal (needs vet treatment!!) -- and the memory will fade. Please help Roman find love again. Call the South L.A. shelter at (213) 485-0117 or -0119.
