Tumbleweed just made his journey from Kern County Shelter in Bakersfield to our AMA vet in Hollywood. He is a darling little boy and using his back legs!!!! A group of strangers tag-teamed the journey, meeting up at various Starbucks to deliver him to our vet - awesome.

To refresh your memories this is the little boy who was hit by a car and has languished in Kern (high kill) Shelter for the past two weeks.

Tumbleweeds roll across the 5 and this little guy has rolled across the desert and gathered up hearts - hence the name, Tumbleweed.

Will keep you updated.

What an adorable little boy. This is the first I am hearing of him and I would like to donate a little something for his care. Please let me know where I can make my donation for this sweet baby.
AMA have a rescue section on their website with the details. Here's the link if you want to give directly via their paypal button on the site.

Bron - he adorable. So he's using his back legs? :chili::chili: What a great team relay to get him help. I love the name Tumbleweed. Little TW, you're safe now:)
Isn't he the cutest! And a very good little boy. None of the people who drove him own Maltese - just dog lovers who cared enough to make it happen. Gotta love people.

I'm so glad that he made it to you. He is adorable -- in fact, I want him :) It's so wonderful that people worked together to make this happen. Dog lovers are truly the best.

Am anxiously awaiting to hear what the vet has to say.

I think they'd love this story, too. Some wonderful and dedicated dog lovers!

Bron, he's a little doll and look at that smiling face, even with the pain he could be feeling. Such a love!

Tumbleweed is a right gentleman.

Tumbleweed picked up a lot of foxtails and ear gunk on his tumble down the lost highway... but tomorrow he will get his day at the salon. I'm afraid a lot of his long coat will need to go - and what a beautiful texture his coat is. He is one handsome boy.

Gosh, Bron. Every picture of him is cuter than the last. Hair grows back, but you only get one life to live (I guess unless you're a cat) and I'm happy that he'll be living it with a loving family in the future. How much does he weigh?

Susan,

Tumbleweed is a sturdy 10 pounder. So handsome and in really good health surprisingly. Just finishing his video and will post soon.
