Welcome to Animal Rescue League of El Paso.
An Extra Special Day At Animal Rescue
Actually everyday Animal Rescue League finds a forever home for one of our rescues is a special day. But on this "extra" special day one of ARL's long-time residents found her forever home.
Desiree was found in the desert, torn-up with infected bites, bruises and large knots on her head. At her age ARL assumes she had out lived her usefulness as a breeding or bait dog and was discarded. Happily for Desiree that was not the last chapter in her abusive life. She had been at ARL for nearly two years. Although she had several "looks" and other people who supported her because of medical needs, she just never found that special one. Desiree is a Bull Terrier.
Bull Terriers are know to be fun, comical and people-loving dogs. They are also know to be strong, courageous, scrappy, active, and fearless. They enjoy being around people and are fiercely protective, although comprehensive socialization at an early age will prevent them from becoming over-protective and neurotic.
Even at the age of 12 Desiree is still fun, silly and very strong and she loves people. She loves toys and playing in the water. Dealing with her special needs, eyes, skin problems and dislike of other animals made it even harder to find that special home. ARL thought Desireee would probably live out her life at ARL, but then that "extra" special day came. ARL couldn't have been happier and Desiree's new "Angel Adopter" was all smiles. He told ARL he wanted to give Desiree the best life for whatever time she had left. What a wonderful new chapter in her and her Angel's life.
