Editor's note: Learn what has happened with these two pups in the weeks since then in next week's Caliente in the Arizona Daily Star.

Boston, an Australian Shepherd mix who volunteers say has been bounced around way too many times, will be euthanized at 5 p.m. Sunday unless he gets a new home first.

Boston initially had until 7 p.m. today (Friday), but was given an extension until 5 p.m. Sunday. 

Volunteers who have worked with the 2-year-old pup describe an outgoing dog who needs the right home with someone who can give him the guidance he needs.

He comes with three free private lessons to help his new family work through the anxiety this boy has understandably developed from being bounced around.

Interested persons should go directly to PACC with Boston’s identification number which is A439942.

 Another effort to save a dog at PACC has come to our attention. Lucky also has until Sunday at 5 to find a home.

Volunteers say Lucky is a 7 year old sweet boy who got a bad deal —he was in his kennel by himself and someone mistakenly put another dog in with him. Things got a little rowdy and now Lucky ended up on the short list, meaning if he does not get rescued by Sunday at 5 p.m., he will be euthanized. 

Lucky  loves to go for walks, sit and shake paws for treats and just lounge around. He would love a nice mellow home.   He is a mature dog at 7 years old, and has a lot of life and love left.  Interested persons should go directly to PACC with Lucky’s identification number, which is A473912. 

Pima Animal Care Center (243-5900) is located at 4000 N. Silverbell Road. Adoptions from noon-7 p.m. Mondays-Friday; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
