Truman, the black and white dog who’d flopped on his back, was slated for euthanasia on Monday, four days after his arrival at the shelter. His sister, Mandi, was scheduled for Tuesday. Unfortunately, the shelter couldn’t hold them any longer than that because it was overcrowded. Thankfully, the rescue group quickly found foster carers for them.
Truman is still being cared for by Cypress Lucky Mutt Rescue, but it was actually Kellie Donoghue, director of Grace Mercy Love German Shepherd Rescue, who went to pick him up from the shelter on Monday. Instead of waiting for the shelter staff to bring him out, Donoghue accompanied the staff to Truman’s kennel.
