In the later part of 2008, there were a few new puppies on the beach. When we asked how they came to be, we were told about a guy selling the puppies to the homeless people. We were floored to hear that someone would bring puppies to the beach to sell them. He was asking for $40 a pup. One pup, Marley, was sold for $5! Marley was featured in one of our The Pet Hui segments. She didn't have a good life out there and she is now in the best Adoptive home! A couple days later, we got a call from one of the camp ohana. They told us that another of the siblings was just dumped off! No one wanted to take care of it and they asked if we could pick it up. We went down there and saw Marley's sister...Josie (she had no name at the time). The camp ohana told us that the guy actually sold Josie at a chicken fight. The person who bought her changed their mind and gave her back to him. Then, she was dumped on the same homeless beach that her siblings were sold at. Looking at her now, even back then--no one would ever realize what she had been through or to even fathom that she was sold at an alleged chicken fight!
She often is seen tagging along on vet appointments or visiting the staff at Animal House Vet. Josie loves the attention she gets from the whole crew there. She is a healthy young dog who gives the goofiest smile and simply enjoys life! She is our Ms.Aloha Spokes-Dog. Her mission is to help other doggies with some tips and things that she has learned in her life.
