Last week, The Dawg Squad rescued a dog that had been horribly neglected by his owner and held as an evidence dog at the South LA Shelter. He’s been so neglected that over 60% of his skinny body was covered in mange! But he’s since been renamed Clooney (because he’ll be strikingly handsome very soon!) and is well on his way to healing and being loved for the first time in his life.
I met Clooney this week and wasn’t sure what to expect. I mean this dog has obviously been kept outdoors and neglected for his entire life. What I found was an exuberant and vivacious dog who was ready to play, play play! Working in rescue, I’ve met so many dogs who have been so abused they’re left vacant shells. Not Clooney. Despite everything he’s been through, he is an AMAZINGLY happy dog. Clooney loves treats, loves playing catch, and loves being loved on.

On Sunday April 22nd at 2PM, M Bird Studio (my favorite hair salon!) will be hosting a fun dog event. I’ll be there taking photos for $25 and you’ll receive a free 5×7 digital file of your dog. 100% of proceeds will be donated to The Dawg Squad to heal Clooney and give him the chance at life he deserves. We all hope to see you there for a great cause! And if you can’t make it but would still like to help The Dawg Squad out, you can donate here.
Clooney I love you! Thank you Amy and Emily for your help in capturing these images, and as always, thank you to The Dawg Squad for being such a friend and advocate to dogs in Los Angeles.
