Update 12/4/13 2:15 p.m. (PST): Champs has been rescued!
Approximately one year ago, fun-loving, handsome "Champs," beat the odds and walked out of the South Los Angeles Shelter in Los Angeles, Calif., alive.
For awhile, Champs had a family, but things recently went awry and Champs is now back behind bars and today he is in dire need of help.
A shelter volunteer shared the following information about this handsome, Labrador retriever mix:
Yes, Champs was adopted from the old South L.A. shelter on 11th Ave., a happy over-sized puppy who loved everyone. And, though time has passed, he's still that delightfully goofy and ridiculously silly puppy -- and he still loves everyone ...
only now he's back in medical with a luxated hip and abrasions on his back legs and lower lip. Looks like Champs wasn't quite the champion when a car passed by and hit him (most likely). But, somehow, he's quite oblivious to it all -- and shakes his rear with joy whenever you approach his kennel.
The happy, handsome puppy who beat the odds once may not be so fortunate this time around. The shelter volunteer shared these chilling words:
His time is very, very limited!!
Please take a moment to network on Champs' behalf - his former family has washed their hands of him and today, he has no one.
