Hey Kimberly!
I've met Linda, the neighbor, and I picked up the puppy last night!  He's BEYOND adorable and a really good little guy.  The mother and sister of the man that died were there and later they packed up the female, but the boy King wouldn't get into the car with them.  Don't know if you've talked to Linda but she said they might come back tonight and get him but what would be best for King is just a new home.  He appears to be a Mastiff mix (shorter than the typical Mastiff) and SO SWEET.  He's got a great demeanor, and would make a great dog for someone.  The female was more standoffish (pittie mix) and they put her back in the apartment while I was picking up puppy, so I didn't interact with her but for a second.  The sister told Linda that she'll go outside and live at her place.  These are not dog people.  The mom is probably a really nice lady but she's elderly, so the sister probably rules the roost.  

Don't know if you want to share this part of the paragraph, but this place was rough.  So glad I got that puppy out of there because who knows what would have happened to him.  The patio door is exposed to the parking lot, and I'm sure everyone knows the door isn't locked.  Don't think anyone will go in and steal King since it appears the community is scared of him.  He needs out badly, and not end up at a house where he'll be stuck outside 24/7.  Linda said she won't be surprised if the female is back within a few weeks.  It breaks my heart that he was pulling from them while they were just trying to get him in the car.  Clearly he was scared.  I found out that 3 weeks ago the electric was shut off and that is when the dog's owner moved somewhere else until he could pay for the electric.  Then he died wherever he was, not there.  So there were 10 puppies along with King and Obama (female) left there for 3 weeks in a roach infested hot apartment.  If it wasn't for Linda they would all be dead.
Help us get King out of there.  I'll sponsor his neuter.
Thanks!

Watch for my pics of the puppy on FB; SO CUTE!!!

Garland TX
- Dogs abandoned in apartment!! - NO ELECTRICITY OR WATER ... OWNER DIED
The owner of these dogs died.  The dogs are still in the apartment with no electricity and no water.  The neighbor is trying to help them.  She reached out to me.  Carlos is the manager of the apartment complex.  He has been working with the neighbor the entire time.  He will be able to give you all the details as well.  Carlos: 972-374-6293.

The puppy is a boy, has a great temperament, needs de-worming.  Dad is the beige dog, very laid back doesn't seem dog or cat aggressive at all, good with kids.  The mom is a little bit dog aggressive, she is fine with the beige boy, and doesn't react well to other alpha females or little dogs, not sure about cats; never seen her show anything unpleasant to cats or children.  
All in great health with shots except puppy worms.

This is in Garland, TX.

You can also reach the neighbor of the deceased owner at: 214-723-9057.  She is who reached out to me regarding this little family.
