Sandy, A#1219443 back at the shelter for no reason except for her breed.
Sandy is a 3 yr. old spayed Staffordshire Terrier who has been at the West Los Angeles Animal Shelter since Oct. 9, 2011. Sandy and her 10 puppies originally came to the shelter on June 4, 2011.
Sandy or momma as we lovingly called her was a good mom who cared for her pups until it was time to separate from them. She cried and tried to reach them when they were put in a separate run. She had to be moved to a different part of the shelter where she could not see them. Her pups were all adopted very quickly and it was our wish that Sandy too would find a good home.
In Sept. the volunteers and staff were thrilled when a family came to the shelter to see her and decided to adopt her. It was our hope with Sandy, as it is with all of our dogs, that she find a good home with people who would love and care for her. Sadly for Sandy that did not happen. She was returned by the adoptive family because the landlord did not approve. They described Sandy as friendly with everyone and a good dog which we all knew from her previous time at the shelter. Sandy loves to play with her toys but more than anything she loves her people. She is good with other dogs and she is just a fun dog to be around as can be seen in this video.
Sandy is back again and again we hope that she finds that special person who will not only love and protect her but be committed to her so that can finally feel safe and secure in her forever home. Please help Sandy find that special person.
