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!
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 come and pick the puppy 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 who dumped her actually sold Josie at a chicken fight. The person who bought her changed their mind and gave her back to the guy. Then, he went and dumped her off 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!
We are glad that she no longer has to worry about anything like that any more! Rescued dogs ROCK!
Josie gives the goofiest smile and simply enjoys life!
She is our Ms.Aloha SpokesDog.
Her mission is to help other doggies with some tips about what she has learned in her life.
