Last week I got an urgent text from Dayna who at the time was in California, that she needed my help. I was already at her home in Sorrento doing my regular dog walk. So I thought I was where I needed to be. I was wrong. She told me that Lake County’s Animal Shelter was over full and they were getting ready to put to sleep some dogs.I was shocked to find out these dogs were only 3 and 4 months old.
I basically dropped everything and raced off to the shelter. Dayna gave me the number of the dog that I need to rescue that was going to be put to sleep the very next day. He was in cage 45. As I walked through the shelter,I could see that they had every cage full and more dogs waiting behind this curtain waiting their turn to be put in the “display cage” That’s what I call them. Don’t get me wrong the folks who work there are so nice and helpful.
It broke my heart to know that these dogs just want to be loved and their life clock was ticking down. As I approached number 45, I remembered Dayna said he was only about 4 months old. What a beautiful boy he was. So I asked if I could spend some time with him. He was a little scared but warmed up pretty fast. He was so gentle with eyes that said “Thank You” for finding me.
Today I was able to pick him up and bring him to his foster mommy Dayna. Here’s his first official picture. The day I met him I just thought of the name Colt. Colt needs a forever home. Over the next few days Dayna will evaluate him and more gather more information about him. That way we will know the best type of home he can go to. Stay tune for further updates on Colt.
