Abandoned by his family and the family he saved! Urgent Foster Needed!

Hello my name is Angel,
I'm on my way to MN to experience the love of the most kind hearted human who is looking for a loyal companion with more love to offer than anyone could ever imagine. My life was turned upside down until 11/12/08 when MARS saved me in the nick of time. I was recently stuck in a shelter on death row for 10days in Florida.
I ended up there all because I saved the life of a woman and her two year old son! They were approached by a man threatening their lives at knife point while they were leaving a play ground. I happened to walk right in to this dangerous crime scene, while I was taking a stroll through the neighborhood without my parents.
I knew that I had to act quickly and protect them so I charged toward him with all my might yelling at him in my scariest voice and he took off the other direction. I was afraid that he was going to hurt them so I did what any guy would do witnessing that kind of a dangerous situation.

I was so proud of myself for doing such a good deed, everyone kept telling me how good of a boy I was for springing into action it felt amazing to be so appreciated by everyone who surrounded me at that moment. After the coward ran away I jumped in the back seat of her car and waited for the police to come and make sure this woman and her little boy were going to be safe.

Then instead of her taking me home with her, she sent me with animal control. I could not believe it I was stuck in jail for being a hero, this was really confusing because I thought only bad guys go to jail not hero's. The lady I protected told the police that if my owners never came back to claim me that she would adopt me herself, but I never saw her again. I thought she would keep her word and she failed me, I was so crushed by her false promises to me. She even told the police that she felt like I was her guardian angel. Once again I was confused by this as well because angels are supposed to be special right ?
The longer I waited for her to come back and save me the less special I felt, my glory turned into fear and sorrow. I'd seen so many dogs leaving their kennels and never coming back that it made me wonder when it was going to be my turn to take my last walk down that long hallway. While I was in the shelter the doctor diagnosed me with heart worm she said this is something that I need to have medical treatment for to cure right away.

I'm so relieved that a team of rescuers whom I have never met in MN are willing to save my life and find me a family to call my own. The staff at the shelter were very surprised that the lady whose life I saved never came back to return the favor or that my owners never came looking for me.

Do you have room at your house for me ? I would love to have a nice yard to play in and my very own kid to cuddle up with. If it's not too much to ask I may need a sweater to keep me warm since I'm a southern boy who has never experienced winter. If you don't have a spare sweater for me that's ok a nice big place in your heart would even feel better.

Hope to meet you soon!
