Khali fighting for her life. Needs your help August 2014! For updates on her progress:

Afghan Hound, Khali fighting to live with the help of many... Full story and photos on our Facebook, Afghan Hound Rescue of Southern California has agreed to take this girl if we can get her well enough to make the trip to the US. Lisa Cooper, a volunteer/adoption coordinator with Doggies Inc., based primarily in Okinawa, Japan rescues dogs and cats from the local Japanese high kill animal control facility known as Ozato. They do not have a shelter, rather use a system of foster homes. They have come to the rescue of this girl and saved her from being gassed. She is in horrendous shape and have started her healing process. First of all she has a name. Khaleesi or Khali for short. She was pulled from Ozato high kill shelter by Doggies Inc volunteers in Okinawa. Unable to walk, she was carried to the car and taken straight to an off base veterinary clinic called EIR. She weighs a mere 15.5 kg, about 34 pounds. She is anemic and blood tests showed she is heart worm positive with microfilaria. (This is not much of a surprise). She has a bacterial skin infection, nothing contagious. She was given a sub cutaneous drip for dehydration. A few pressure wounds were uncovered which appeared to be quite infected so she received steroids and antibiotics. She is currently in the home of one of our volunteers being shaved. The mats covering her body are just horrendous. It's not an exaggeration to say she was at Death's door. We hope she will at least feel more comfortable tonight and be able to find the strength to start the process of healing. We put out an appeal on our own Facebook page and have already had a good response. We will be posting updates on that page regularly as well. She is going to need a lot of help.

Erik and I rescued Sunny from the L A Co. animal control. At first his head was low and tail between his legs. We got him home and watched him blossom into the elegant creature God intended. He was noticed everywhere we went. He was an excellent ambassador of the breed. Kids went crazy and adults would ask what kind of dog is that? He seemed to know he was something special. Always kind and gentle no matter the circumstances. He was my travel buddy, fishing buddy, and confidant. He loved going to the farm, no leash, could wander and run with out restraint, never out of sight of each other. We are missing him and the undeniable Afghan Hound traits. Mike and Erik.
