History: Spirit came to Baldwin Park shelter with her twin sister. Her twin sister was adopted right away, leaving Spirit behind. Since Spirit was so cute and young, WHDR waited for someone to pick her too. But after several weeks, WHDR could not stand leaving Spirit there alone anymore and went to pull her out. (Photo is of her driving far, far away from the shelter.)
