This poor senior dog desperately needs a safe, loving foster. If you can help please contact Lori at email@example.com
Nicky had a nice simple life in South LA, his owner, a retired woman walked him on the same block near Central Ave twice a day every day until one day she stopped. Her neighbor was concerned and found Nicky abandoned in the yard. The owner had gone into the hospital and the adult children didn’t want Nicky. He went to what was supposed to be a temporary home with 15+ other dogs, some very aggressive. Sadly, Nicky was attacked and almost killed by one of the dogs. With no money and no hope, Downtown Dog Rescue paid for three surgeries to piece together Nicky’s neck. He is completely healed, amazingly is fine with other dogs including small dogs, he just doesn’t want to be bothered or jostled around by other dogs. Ideally we are looking for a quiet home where he can live with another old dog. Nicky is fine with cats. Please e-mail Lori@modernica.net

I just don't get it!!! How could a dog as cute as I am still be at the animal shelter? I just don't understand. I was found as a stray on Oct. 5, 2010 and was brought to the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter where I still live. Every day I hope that someone will see what a great dog I am and will give me that forever home that I dream about.
I am 2 yrs. old and in the prime of life. I am black and white as you can see from my photograph. They tell me that I am a Border Collie/Dalmatian mix which gives me pretty good credentials wouldn't you say? I have been spayed, of course, so I am ready to go.
There are many volunteers at the shelter who really like me. One of them even calls me a "great dog". Most of the things they say about me are very positive and make me proud. For instance I am described as sweet and easy to handle. I am so happy when I get to play in the yard. I have a lot of energy so I love to run around and stretch my legs. I sit on command and try my best to respond well to correction. I am a pretty strong girl and sometimes will pull on my leash but if you tell me to stop I promise I will try to obey. I am very affectionate especially with people. I get along OK with big dogs but little dogs spook me so it's better that I not be around them. Oh I forgot to tell you that I love treats so I can learn just about anything if there's a treat in it for me.
Now after reading this you must agree that I am a pretty special dog so why am I still here? I don't know but it scares me because I don't want to die in the shelter. I am a good dog who loves people and I would make someone so happy if they would only give me a chance. Please help me! Don't let me die! I need a "forever home".
