Happy update on Sasha, the once-heartbroken Chihuahua at high-kill shelter

San Bernardino, Calif. - Back in April of this year, animal rescue advocates were alerted by Lois Chisholm about a beloved female Chihuahua who ended up in the dreaded high-kill San Bernardino City Animal Control. It was obvious her guardian spoiled her. Sadly, however, the poor little girl's guardian is dying of Leukemia and could no longer care for her.

Chisholm subsequently gave everyone the good news that Sasha was rescued and would be safe in foster until permanently adopted.

See original story here.

This author was contacted today by Sasha's forever guardian, Hiba Morcos. Sasha's new family is in Vancouver, B.C. Morcos describes her as "a happy, sweet dog," and adds that "she is enjoying her life with my daughter, husband, and three cats. She makes everyone happy."

Judging by the photos of Sasha in her new home, one cannot deny that her story ends happily. (See slideshow.)

If not for rescue advocates, such as Lois Chisholm; rescue organizations, such as Out of the Dog House Rescue; coordinators, such as Nancy Tylicki; fosters, such as Lorrie Freedman; people who adopt shelter animals, such as the Morcos family; and all of those in between, there wouldn't be as many happy-ending stories, like Sasha's.
