Updated: Rescued

On Saturday morning, the volunteer-run Facebook page, Focus on Furever, issued an urgent plea for a “calm, shy boy” who is on the list to be put down by day’s end. The mixed breed dog, who is just two years of age, is being held at the Corpus Christi Animal Care Services facility in Texas – he is located in kennel 48.

Notes provide a glimpse into the death-row dog’s personality:

Very calm shy big boy. Licks fingers and takes treats gently. It is recommended no cats in the home.

This dog, whose name is unknown, is labeled for “rescue only.”

Right now, he desperately needs the help of strangers who are willing to share his information – networking is known to save lives.

Did you know that if you want to get updates from a Facebook page, you have to do more than just “like” it? To get recent postings in your Facebook feed, you must also hover your mouse over the word “following” and then click “see first” from the drop-down menu. You may want to check back with your favorite pages on occasion because Facebook often changes your settings, no longer having your favorites among those to “see first.”

      JENNIFER: YOU are the only ONE that has at least contacted someone in Texas : I for one feel helpless as I live in a Northern Western State . I hope by some miracle this beautiful young dog is saved:: Texas is the ONE State that Makes me shudder!!! There is no animal support per say there at all… I hope your friend Eric is successful…

        He’s safe! My Rescue Contact Eric had him pulled. He is arriving to him this week! Yes, I’m in GA but find cases to be more dire in FL, TX, NY, & CA. So I have to rely on email, posts, & phone in the other states where I have no ability. I am just an individual so my capabilities are limited unfortunately. So happy he’s free! Best feeling ever. Only wish we could save them all. But even saving 1 is a new life for that baby. 😉
