A mysterious injury left a yellow Lab mix named Kanuk without the use of his back legs. But devoted dog lovers in Texas are hoping to find a forever home for the 11-month-old pup just in time for the holidays.
An investigation is underway in Red Bluff, California after a police officer shot two dogs who were reportedly running loose in a residential neighborhood. The Saint Bernards were owned by a local family who are calling the shooting a “horrific killing,” and a “gross injustice” on Facebook. Police say the officer appears to have been acting in self-defense.
For years the mystery has haunted me. It all started when I was chatting with a perfectly nice couple interested in adopting a dog. The wife all of a sudden looked at me and said, “I’d like to ask you a question, it’s kind of weird but…” Her husband, clearly getting uncomfortable, interrupted and exclaimed, “No, no, please don’t ask her!”
Youngblood all of a sudden heard firefighters outside their house. She raced out and asked them for help. "We tried bringing the dogs but the current was too strong. We had to walk with the firefighters in shoulder high water, they didn't have a boat," said Youngblood. "They told us bringing the dogs back inside was the best thing to do."
