A poor dog's best friends

Evans plays with Roxy, now named Leica, whom Evans recently adopted from German Shepherd Rescue. Evans took one look at Sid and wondered, "Is anyone going to adopt this guy?" He struggles to maintain a balanced mix among the 20 or so dogs at the rescue. He needs lots of young, healthy, pretty dogs, which will be adopted in a matter of days, to help cover the costs of keeping older dogs that can take months if not years to find a forever home. Evans said he feels as though he's sentencing a dog to death when he declines to accept it into the shelter.Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times
