MID-MORNING EDITION OF WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 2018 (PetPowellPress) -- If a dog or a cat is in a shelter, there’s a human failure somewhere along the way. And sometimes there’s a human decision that puts a dog on death row.
This is Bubbles.
We mentioned Bubbles before -- a 9-pound, 10-month-old Chihuahua mix who wasn’t in such a dire state when we first wrote about him. Now, however, according to the Mesquite Animal Services folks, Bubbles is “not able to be put into adoptions: and “must be tagged by 11 a.m. Thursday.”
The volunteer tipster Judi Brown first told us about Bubbles, surrendered on June 7 because of a “behavioral issue.” She wrote, “The issue was that he became overprotective of one member of the family.”
She’d told us he was a “work in progress” and he makes good progress when given time and attention. Here’s the telling sentence: “Eventually he decided I was to be trusted, so he jumped on my lap and even kissed me.”
Bubbles is #38783837. Use that number when you get in touch with the shelter to save the life of this little boy dog. Call the shelter at 972-216-6283 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
[READLARRYPOWELL.COM would interview every dog and cat in the shelters and give each of them a big biographical story if we could overcome the laws of physics. Not enough time. Not enough space. It becomes the responsibility of all of us to remind the rest of us that great animals are sitting in kennels and waiting for homes where they’ll be loved and not dumped, ignored, neglected, abused or forgotten. And, for crying out loud, surely someone has a place for a 9-pound dog named Bubbles.]
