ANGUS – A1037177
**SAFE 06/08/15 ** SECOND CHANCE FOR DARLING ANGUS! Angus winks because he knows a secret—he knows that he is the PERFECT companion for some lucky person; he knows he is a once-in-a-lifetime soulmate. Angus is only about 2 years old but he seems to posess a great depth of wisdom that belies his young age. He has been a bit tentative at the shelter, cautiously sniffing his surroundings as if to ask, “Is this okay for me?” Of course, nothing about the shelter is “okay” for Angus, so he is wise to be so careful. The shelter completely failed to help this EXPERIENCE-rated love find a new home, so it’s down to the wire, and down to his Urgent family tonight. Noon will be here before you know it, and the rustle of a black plastic freezer bag will be heard right afterwards. Make sure that is not the last sound ANGUS hears, by advocating strongly for him tonight!
