Status: RESCUED!

Damu used to live with a family, but they were moving and took him to the Carson shelter. Luckily for Damu, he’s young (2 years old), he’s house-trained, and he’s a stunning “fawn” color. Un-luckily for Damu: He’s a pitbull at Carson.

He jumps around in his cage and scares people off from looking past that pent-up puppy energy. Damu has been at Carson since OCTOBER, so he’s now urgent, and running out of time. The people who pass Damu by haven’t seen him in action, interacting happily with people and generally behaving well.

My theory is that homeless and abandoned dogs are a lot like the “broken window syndrome” in low-income communities, and that initially small problems result in wide ripple effects. Stop them from getting worse, and an entire neighborhood, a city, a region, maybe even the world can be changed.
