A pair of miniature black Poodles were abandoned at LAX when their owner, a woman retiring overseas, could not afford the fees to bring them along.

Originally intending to bring the pair along as carry-on luggage, the woman’s carrier was not regulation size. Her options were to leave the airport and purchase an airline approved carrier or to check the dogs as cargo. Instead, she chose to abandon the dogs, leaving the country without them.

Airlines typically charge between $175 and $250 per animal, a price most of us would happily pay if it meant keeping our pets by our side.

So, 6-year old Sorullo and 3-year old Tulip were taken to the West LA Animal Shelter where they examined and put up for adoption.

Tulip was adopted right away, Sorullo is still looking for a forever family – preferably one that doesn’t plan on retiring overseas any time soon.
