Amigo aka 'Migo, was adopted 7 months ago from a city-run, high-kill animal shelter in Olmito, Texas, along the border of the Rio Grande where Texas meets Mexico. Dogs like him-German shepherd mixes- are a dime a dozen in this highly impoverished area of Texas. They are used primarily to protect houses from burglary, not for companionship. This is exactly 'Migo's story. He spent the first year of his life in a yard with other dogs, virtually untouched. His previous owner, a teenage boy, surrendered him to the city shelter when his family was forced to move from their house due to financial hardship. 'Migo had 24 hours left of his 72 hours when his new owner found him. 'Migo has adjusted to his new life in Southern California; he loves hiking, jogging, and going to the barn with his new owner. He was born to be a companion in every sense of the word, and that's exactly what he is today.
