UPDATE, per Lois Chisholm, who works tirelessly to save the small breed dogs at the San Bernardino City Animal Control:

"I have since been contacted by a rescue (They have saved many dogs from this shelter) who agreed to save Sasha. The rescue uses home fosters, so she will be loved and cared for until she is adopted."

Happy endings like this make animal rescue worth the blood, sweat and tears put into saving just one animal.

___________________________________

San Bernardino, Calif. - A three-year-old Chihuahua - who's sporting a little heart-shaped name tag with the name "Sasha" on it - sits at the high-kill San Bernardino City Animal Control, waiting and yearning for the life she once had.

If eyes are the windows to the soul, what do you see in the eyes of this little girl? Sorrow and heartbreak? Confusion? Terror? Pleading? Or, do you see all of these things?

This little girl probably rightly senses that the life she had once known is forever gone. Sadly, Sasha's guardian is dying of leukemia and is no position to save her. Even more unfortunate is it appears that her guardian's relatives aren't going to come to her rescue, either.

Life can be so cruel. When life deals a terrible blow to animals, they don't have the same resources, capacity, or even choices that humans have to deal with it. So, it becomes the responsibility of animal rescue advocates to save them.

Rescue advocates are desperately trying save the once-much-beloved little girl. She is at the San Bernardino City Animal Control, so that makes her situation more critical.

The following is her pertinent information:

Name: Sasha
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female/Spayed
Age: Approximately 3 years
Color: White and tan/Smooth coat
ID #: A439958
San Bernardino Animal Control phone #: (909) 384-1304
