As some of you may remember, a small but energetic puppy was carried to a Neighborhood Fire Station in Los Angeles by a ten year old girl on a cold night in March of 2006.
The young girl bravely rang the doorbell of LAFD Station 29 and explained that she could no longer keep her best friend, because her apartment was too small for the quickly growing puppy.
Though the Firefighters wanted to help, the best they could do was to provide a referral to the local animal shelter - where the girl and her family learned that only one week's care could be provided.
Worried for her best friend, the girl insisted her parents take her and the bright-eyed Dalmatian back to the Fire Station because she was certain the crew from Fire Station 29 would rescue him.
...and so, with the help of legendary 'Dog Whisperer' Cesar Millan, the LAFD career of Wilshire the Fire Dog began.
Now you may think you recall the story, but since our last visit, the story of Wilshire has become as global as the internet.
