UPDATE: September 11, 2003 Bandit has been adopted!!! He has done wonderfully on his new diet and his skin and coat are in amazing shape already. I'm very pleased with his health, so went ahead and let him go. His new people just love him and are willing to learn about how diet and nutrition will keep him strong and healthy for many years to come. They have also agreed to make sure he gets plenty of exercise to shed some of those excess pounds! I'm thrilled with this placement and will miss my dear, sweet Bandit, but know he will live a wonderful, pampered life as all puggies should. Congratulations Bandit, Tim and Daryl!!
Bandit came to us by "divine intervention" and we are thrilled to have been able to save him from certain death. He had been surrendered by his owner to a rural dog pound with the claim that he had serious medical conditions and he was to be euthanized! A caring soul who just happened to be going through the shelter spotted him, told a friend and she e-mailed our organization hoping that we could intervene. This all transpired on a Sunday evening, with his euthanasia scheduled for first thing Monday a.m.!! One of our officers immediately contacted the dispatcher for the dog warden and pleaded that she be contacted before anything was done with this pug. The dog warden and our officer talked and it was agreed that if the surrendering party agreed to his placement with rescue, he could be turned over to us, but if not, his execution would be mandatory. Thankfully, it all worked out and with the help of several caring folks, Bandit is now being fostered by our Rochester officer, Kat. Whew, that was a close one!!!
