The comment i just wrote again did not show up. It was bothering me so i wrote it again. I'm still having too many tech issues that started 4 days ago now.

Kudos to the officers.

Kudos, Officers! Police from over a 50mi radius of my hospital routinely bring us sick and injured animals off the streets and from domestic situations. I've even adopted three of them!
We do hear some rather dismal stories. All the more reason to show the police respect and gratitude for the good that they do.

Update: Culver City Police Lt. Randy Vickrey told Patch Saturday morning that Cruiser is ready today to go to a new home or a rescue group. If Cruiser doesn't find a new home by Monday he will be taken to the pound.

Here are the important details that a potential new owner or rescue group must know about Cruiser:

Cruiser is a six or seven-year-old pitbull
He is dog aggressive
He needs to go to a home that has no other pets
He needs to be with an owner that is comfortable handling a dog aggressive dog

If anyone can help Cruiser please contact Lt. Randy Vickrey ASAP at

Poor Cruiser - what a horrible life he lived. Thanks officers for helping him - you showed compassion and that is a rare quality in us humans. I pray he finds his forever home.

Noted and so glad he lived, thanks to the officers - who didn't shot him. Also glad they got the drunk driver - hope they throw the book at him.
