Arsen Melikyan Saves a Hollywood Puppy

I've written about the exploits of my can-do staff before, but the latest heroics of Arsen Melikyan, CD13 constituent services worker, go above and beyond the call of any ordinary caseworker.

A few days ago while walking from our field office to his home in the heart of Little Armenia, Arsen saw this pooch being thrown out of a local business. Braving the dimly lit street and heavy traffic, he ventured across the road and rescued the young pup from a bleak fate.

Not content to merely turn over the two month old pure blood American Staffordshire Terrier to the pound, he pounded the pavement until he could find the dog, whom he named "Hollywood," a loving and caring home.

Just another day in the life of a CD13 staffer.
