When the Staffordshire/pit bull mix finally reached solid ground, he was hungry and thirsty, but shockingly free of any major injuries. Without a microchip or name tag to ID him, the pup is now being called "West," in honor of the mountain where he made his unexpected appearance.
“He’s recovering nicely,” Officer Sakelarakis says. “Right now he really wants to be with people. He’s sweet and he takes treats nicely.” So far, no owner has stepped forward to claim West, who has already been through so much, and it is doubtful if anyone will. West loves to cozy up to people and has an “awesome” personality, notes Sakelarakis. “West is just the perfect gentleman,” Woodbridge Animal Control writes in a recent Facebook post.
