Luigi - A Soul That Deserved a Shot at Life
(story courtesy of FBR.org)
When our volunteers learned about Luigi, it was a story we've heard many times before. Twelve week old puppy who was bald, mangey, stinky, scabby, and well, ugly. He was suffering from horrible Demodex, an Upper Respiratory Infection, and we later learned he had Parvo as well. We couldn't even tell if Luigi was, indeed, a boxer. But, rescuers know there's a gem underneath all that. At Florida Boxer Rescue, we don't dwell on the peripheral. Below the surface there is a soul that deserves a shot at a happy life. We believe that every dog deserves at least that – and we stopped short at nothing for this boy. Sadly,Luigi's young life was cut short due to neglect, sickness, and bad luck,although the little fellow put up a tremendous fight for his life. Our immediate response is to find someone to blame. Whoever had him and let him waste away. The people who passed by and did nothing to save him. The truth is, our energy is better spent remembering Luigi and honoring the time he had with us. There will be other Luigi's and we must be ready for when they come along. Please consider donating in Luigi's name so FBR can cover the vet bills from trying to save his life. Any extra will be used to help save the next Luigi we are called on to save. We must thank the vets and their staffs at Midway Animal Hospital in Homosassa and Florida Veterinary Specialists in Tampa for doing everything possible to try and save Luigi’s life and for making him comfortable and showing him love.
For every sale made at either Barking Dog Creations or Evelyn McCPeters Art from now until Valentine's Day, I will donate 10% to help Florida Boxer Rescue.
Please open your hearts and give if you can, any amount at all is helpful. If you would like to donate directly in memory of Luigi visit http://flbr.chipin.com/in-memory-of-luigi
which will take you to Florida Boxer Rescue. 
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this story.

Thanks Jo, this little guy has just stuck in my head. I always wish I could do more, but I know I do what I can. Just can't be a foster, I would forever be a flunky and end up with dozens of dogs! Thanks for stopping by!
