A friend sent me this photo and the info below it. Needless to say it broke my heart. I found out she was scheduled to be put to sleep but was given a three day extension. No one put in a rescue request. Her clock was ticking and so my husband and I decided to do something about this sweetheart. Her arthritic legs held her up for the entire 2 1/2 hour drive back to our place with her head out the window. After a good long sniff, a meal, doing her stuff in the right place she’s happily resting next to Max & Bella, her new siblings. She’s an absolute sweetheart with a lot of life left in her senior body. The shelter named her Lady Luck. We’ll call her Lady for short.
A4709974 Lady Luck is an affectionate twelve year old black female Labrador Retriever who was unceremoniously dumped at the Downey Shelter on May 15th because her previous owners said she was too old and they no longer wanted to take care of her. Weighing fifty-two pounds, this sweet-natured dog walks well on leash and we think she may be housebroken. She is good-natured, likes the company of other dogs and we think that based on her age and her medical condition (arthritis) she would do best with older children. She has pulled mightily on all of our heartstrings because we all want so badly for her to go to a home and live out her last years on a soft bed and in the care of a loving family. Lady Luck is an exceptional indoor pet for an individual or family with older children living in a private home.
