This just in from SLA!!!
How did it happen that I asked about Astaire last Saturday? I had admired his soft, fluffy coat many times. Seen his tail start to flutter from side to side when I approached his kennel. I never expected to hear that he was going to be euthanized that very day. I was stunned. Now, granted a brief extension, Astaire is waiting for someone special to save him -- and soon.
Astaire (A1099183, 2 years old) is affectionate, a great kisser, -- and a dashingly divine dancer. When he walks, he lifts his paws like a Clydesdale, like a show dog in the ring, so assured of capturing his First Place ribbon. (He's gotten a bit stiff in the legs -- so needs a regular work-out routine.) He's confident. He knows that he's got charm and good looks. Kenneled with other dogs, Astaire seems fine in that department as well. If you would like to add a hoofer to your family, complete with smooches and smiles, call the South L.A. shelter at (213) 485-0117 or -0119. Don't let this dog who escaped death once have to face it again this weekend. And kindly let us know if you can save Astaire. Many thanks, Andrea & Mindy firstname.lastname@example.org
