Unfortunately for one little Sacramento girl named Tiffany the holiday is shaping up to be anything but joyous. Tiffany is terminal with cancer and her one wish is to have a Pug BFF. A woman named Lee Stevens of Harlee's Angels pet rescue stepped up and found Mushu, a Pug puppy. While getting ready for Mushu to meet Tiffany, Mushu was placed in foster care with a woman named Kristi Massin. This is where things take a downturn. According to Ms. Stevens, Ms. Massin now refuses to hand Mushu back to the rescue and in turn, over to Tiffany's family.
When I inquired as to why Mushu was being withheld, Ms. Stevens and another individual informed me that Ms. Massin has personal issues with another individual involved in the rescue. Ms. Massin for her part, has proven quite difficult to get hold of. Hopefully she will read this and offer her side of the story. I can not imagine any personal issues being so large as to deny a very sick child. Today, Ms. Stevens formally laid charges for the return of Mushu.
In the meantime? There is a very sick little girl caught in the middle of this mess. I thought I had seen it all before. Rescues fight with each other and often fight internally, but never, EVER have I seen such a disagreement explode to the point where a terminally ill child is the victim of such an issue. There should be no more arguing and no more excuses. Get this dog to this girl so she can have the merry Christmas she is dreaming of.
So far I have only heard one side of this story. Ms. Stevens says she has done and will continue to do everything she can legally until Mushu finds his way into Tiffany's loving arms. I can only hope that whether she responds or not, Ms. Massin will agree and do everything in her immediate power to do the same.
I will be updating this story as information becomes available.
