According to records, on December 12, 2008, a puppy was born in the vicinity of Heard County, Georgia. By the accuracy of this date, this pup and his litter mates may even have been born in the Heard County Animal Control Center. Whatever the case, that is where this pup stayed until, like so many others, his time ran out. Fortunately in his case, he was rescued by Eleventh Hour Rescue, a non-profit group dedicated to saving the lives of innocent dogs on death row. Please, visit their site, read their ‘About’ page, look at the faces of the dogs they’ve rescued but still need homes. Every day across the country while happy families are buying purebreds and designer puppies, there are frightened, confused dogs in shelters, needlessly put to death for no other reason than lack of a home. This tragedy must stop. If there is room in your heart and your home, make the choice to save a life. Look at these faces…
They are all rescues, and all wonderful, loving, delightful members of our home. Left to right: Loki (7 months), Moxy (12 years) and Rex (3). Loki arrived under the name Zeus, though he didn’t seem to acknowledge it, and we felt Loki, the Norse god of chaos and mischief, might be more appropriate for his playful personality. In one day’s time he’s already settling in quite nicely and catching on to house routines by following the other two.
To one reader in particular, if you see this, yeah, I know. And by the way, he looks just like a 40 lb. version of Ari in black.
