Foreclosure effects a lot more than just the home owner.
Last week we received a call from a luxury home builder in Las Vegas. Apparently, one of the homes in the subdivision that he built went into foreclosure. The resident that had lived there had six dogs originally. When she moved out (after letting the place fall apart), she took all of the little dogs with her and left Milo in the backyard. Milo was chained on a short chain, with no shelter from the hot sun and nothing to lay on. To say he was filthy is like saying that Las Vegas gets a little warm in the summer.
We managed to get the chain unattached from his neck and coaxed him into the van. Once he was free of the house, he started to warm up to us. After he got to our house, it was apparent that he was never allowed inside before. Now, several days later, he is getting the hang of things and he enjoyed his bath immensely. As you can see, he cleans up rather well!
Milo is now on a waiting list to enter the Pups on Parole training program run by Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary. He is an extremely lucky dog since he is a BBD and was left for death by his prior owner. He gets along great with our other dogs and is a quick learner. If you are interested in adopting him or another dog in need of a good home, visit Heaven Can Wait Sanctuary. They also have wonderful cats looking for a home as well.
