I already complained about that months ago. I just find it kind of funny because it makes us looks like trailer trash, since we live in a trailer (albeit a nice one), there's a drug dealer who lives here, we live off of food stamps, and now we have a chihuahua.
There's a good chance they abandoned the pup and went on their way there aint much you can do as you said you been looking and if someone were looking for 'em they would have found out you were search you can let your theif little bro keep 'em or take the pup to a shelter either way kudos ya did a pretty good thing i've seen people just leave a lost were it was at didn't even show any sympathy for kittens or puppies.
yeah it's sad but ya did a good thing saved the pup from being turned into a pancake and found someone that likes 'em even if it sleeps on a pile of dirty laundry O.o the pooch is loved right? Not many people would do that for a lost dog. Most people would just walk away.
People don't want to get involved in things like that, I don't blame them. Hell, I just wanted to find his owners and thought that it wouldn't be more than a few hours and now it's shaping up to look like he might live with us. Maybe that's what people are afraid of happening.
not to sound cynical or anything if your find a stray you can just turn them over to a shelter it's not that hard. Not to long my niece gave her grandmother a kitten now my aunt her grandmother yelled at her for picking up the kitten now this kitten was very young a few months old. now get this i lived in Pennsylvania at that time it gets really cold at night she left the kitten outside on the side of the road i found it 3 hour later while walking my dog. took with me to work to take it to a shelter it wound up find a home in a bagel place. It's not that hard to do the right the thing ya know if she didn't want the cat she could have said so. it not that most people are afraid most people just rather not be bothered and just walk way. either way much respect for what you did. sorry if upset you with my short story
Why not just take the tag off entirely? Would take less effort. Besides, it looks like it just wore off after time, like just years of rubbing against his rubber collar. And we could still get some info off of it since there was a number on the back, everything was just outdated.
i was half-joking. R/Aww is infamous for people posting pictures of their pets claiming "I rescued him/her from something-or-other." I just wanted you to post your picture so that at least one of them would be honest instead of karma-whoring.
If you can't keep the dog and you can't find the owner, there are many no-kill animal rescues that take in rescued animals. I got my cat from a rescue. When she was a tiny kitten, her and her siblings were found in a box at a Toyota dealership. Now she's a spoiled little princess.
There's a no kill shelter here, but they are overflowing with animals and I know that once they have no more room they send the dogs to another shelter, where they may or may not be killed, so there's no real escape to that problem.
I don't think we'll be able to find the owner, but we have a friend who would love to take him off our hands for us so that's probably what's going to happen.
I think if they were to dump him they would have left him the middle of the highway or on the mesa... he was in the middle of a pretty populated neighborhood that while albeit is known to have bears occasionally, doesn't seem too likely.
I'm not too fond of them either, they are all twitchy and always shaking and they smell bad and are sticky. :c I like long haired chihuahuas though.
That isn't true actually, once someone dumped a puppy by our mailbox, and we think it was because they knew we had dogs and would likely take it in. Unfortunately, the between the cold rain that day and it's illness(already sick when we found it) the puppy didn't make it.
