Whoa! "Blossom" Star Saves Dog

10/5/2007 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Courtney ChaseA former child star came to a dog's rescue when she and her sister noticed a neighbor trying to allegedly drown his Shih Tzu in a tub! For the love of Michael Vick!

19-year-old Courtney Chase, who played little Kennedy on the final season of "Blossom," and older sister Ashley were in their Sherman Oaks apartment on Monday when the incident occurred.

After they say they saw neighbor Casey Purser,19, trying to drown his 8-month-old pup, Toby -- for defecating on the carpet -- the sisters entered his apartment, grabbed the pooch and gave him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Courtney then hand-carried Toby to a nearby vet, where the pup is currently recuperating. Who needs PETA when you've got the Chase sisters on the case?!

The Los Angeles District Attorny filed a cruelty to an animal felony charge against Purser for "unlawfully, maliciously and intentionally" holding the dog under water. He faces up to three years in prison. While Purser has been released and returned to the building, TMZ has learned that Courtney and Ashley have wisely relocated.

Purser is due back in court on October 23.

If you can't properly housetrain a dog then don't get one. unfortunately morons get dogs and think all they have to do is yell at them when they relieve themselves in the house. Wrong - what the dog thinks is that he is not allowed to go to the bathroom - ever.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

CHEERS to Ms. Chase!!!! Very nice to hear such a positive story about a celebrity that's not negative! In fact, the absolute, complete opposite of the usual stories- especially where animals end up suffering, but never get helped. People like Ms. Chase give me hope that maybe there is still some chance for this world not taking a big dump because of stupidity and apathy! And btw, sadistic cruelty to animals is almost a universal commonality among serial killers! ..........To end on a positive note, Ms. Chase is now forever to be remembered by history as a kind, decent person! May good Karma find her always!
