Can you believe someone abandoned me in a canal and left me for dead?Hello, my name is Lady Coco Monroe (some of the many names given to me by my new friends), lucky for me a nice fella spotted me and took me out of the canal and put me in an empty lot, he couldn't take me home as he had other dogs that were very territorial... Some of the people who would walk by would toss me some food sometimes. Attacked by other dogs my wounds were starting to get infected as well as my overall health deteriorating due to the heavy Florida rains storms last week. A guardian Angel finally arrived and took me out of the lot I was in, he let me stay in his home where he could tend to my wounds and try to find me a safe home out of the elements and helped me get better. After about a day or two he decided he wouldn't continue the search for a new family as he realized that he had already found one for me... with him.Thanks to my buddy Angel Vergara for saving this extremely beautiful puppy... she is the sweetest dog I have ever come across in my life, I'm glad she found a good home. She is approximately 6 months old and was in pretty bad shape when he found her, she has put on a bit of weight in this photo and her infected wounds on her face and neck are now clean dry scabs that will soon be pretty white fur. She was a delight to shoot, she posed like a seasoned model and ran around playing as I snapped shots. With all the horrifying news in this world as of late this is one of those stories that gives hope in humanity.
