    So very hard to see: she could have a few “good” months or years. Downey is about the last place I would EVER want to see a dog placed… They have NO Chance !!! California is Next to Texas and the Carolinia’s (North & south) for the Total Lack of Interest in making a real effort to save the Live’s of these Poor little animal’s that have been Dumped by the Ugly Human that is a California Guppy and just doesn’t give a shit or have an ounce of compassion and cares ONLY ABOUT #1!!! THEMSELF
