UPDATE: Local KTLA provides an update on the rescued dog--who they are now calling Vernon. The veterinarian says that Vernon is doing great, except for his toenails being ground down from attempting to scale the ledge on his own. He is a beautiful 60lb German Shepherd mix, estimated to be about 6 years old. He sure looks much more relaxed now that he is safe.
His savior, firefighter Joe St. George was injured, but in this interview, he said he does not blame Vernon for biting him because it was normal that he was frightened. No owner has come forward yet to claim Vernon, and he had no collar or microchip to identify him. According to the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority, if he remains unclaimed, he will be put up for adoption after his 10 day quarantine has been completed.
