A strange pair snuggled together near the corner of the pavement in Watts, California, their ragged leashes set aside as if they had been thrown away like trash. It had been cold last night, and the two; one large girl and one young girl, kept each other warm and safe.
It’s not like rescuer Suzette Hall, founder of Logan’s Legacy 29, who arrived on Wednesday to assist catch the dogs, was taken aback. The number of dogs abandoned has climbed rapidly, and each example is arguably more terrible than the last.
BONDED AND LOYAL FRIENDS. IT WAS LIKE THELMA AND LOUISE, OR ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER AND DANNY DEVITO.
This rescue situation was unique; in fact, Suzette was pleased by their desire to be saved and readiness to come forward. The dogs were overjoyed when she initially arrived, as if to say, “someone finally came.”
The two dogs – a pit bull mix and a Yorkshire terrier mix – had been in the neighborhood for days, and no one knew who they were. Someone had just left them to their own devices?
The small puppy ran towards Suzette, eager to be caught up and placed in the safe arms of her rescuer. The big girl then just wanted to be with her companion. Suzette had no intention of abandoning her.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A BOND LIKE THIS BEFORE. IT DID NOT TAKE LONG FOR THEM TO BE TOGETHER IN MY VAN. THEY WAGGLED THEIR TAILS AND WERE LITERALLY OVERJOYED.
WITH THEIR EYES, THEY SAID “SOMEONE DID COME” AGAIN.
The two snuggled close to each other on the way home, weary but making sure they could touch. They were eager to offer kisses, to be fed, and to go to the veterinarian for checkups, immunizations, and any evidence of identification.
Both dogs are really friendly. The Yorkie’s coat is matted, and the pittie has skin problems. For these two adorable puppies, all of this will one day be just a distant memory.
