Jordan is a puppy who was maimed and left to die on the banks of the L.A. River. It’s easy to get angry about the person who committed this heinous act; but, much more rewarding to consider how brave this little puppy was and the kind folks at Hope For Paws and L.A on Cloud 9 who saved the little guy. Jordan displayed an incredibly will to live and accepting heart for all the love her received from his foster mom, Lisa Chiarelli. At just over nine minutes, you might think it’s a long watch but trust me, it’s well worth it. Having tissues on hand might not be a bad idea either.
What an amazing transformation in only a few weeks’ time! If you’re curious about Jordan’s progress since then, he has a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/jordanthewonderdog and it looks like the little guy’s been doing just fine. Hat tip to my friend, Andy DeVol, who along with his fiancée, Chris, have a loveable rescue dog named Billy Boots. He was also in a hopeless situation but was rescued and cared for by a wonderful foster home. Please look up your local animal shelter to see how you can help them keep their doors open, or maybe find your best furry friend.
