An angry dog owner found two puppies dangerously near traffic that would most likely kill them eventually. After handling them for a few days, this person decided to write about it on Craigslist. The post is short and to the point, but the details provided paint a clear picture of what led to these pups being abandoned in the streets. As a dog owner, this story infuriated me! Even if you don’t own animals, I hope that you can understand why this behavior is simply unacceptable.
You’re not looking for them, but I found your two dogs.
Un-neutered, no tags, under 1 year old small males. I hate you, person who dumped these dogs. There are no lost ads on phone poles, no lost ad on Craig’s list, no lost ad in the paper. We put signs up all over, put a found notice in at the local pounds and if you were looking for these filthy little ragamuffins, you would have found them.
We are afraid to take them to the pound because under stress, your dogs were snappy and horribly afraid and dogs are judged by temperament for adoption placement. They would not have passed that test.
However…..They are, under their filth, mats and horrible habits, adorable. They have learned “Quiet,” “Come,” “Sit.” They have stopped being so neurotic and we have broken most of their bad habits in just a few days. They are smart and sweet and are looking for guidance and WANT to be good little dogs.
One is a purebred little white and buff guy with an under-bite, the other is a brown little dog that looks almost exactly like a miniature version of a larger breed dog. They know each other and were obviously (by the same bad habits) raised (poorly) together.
We will get them neutered, train them and get them into a good, loving home with people who use the brains God gave them.If these are your dogs, come on by, I’d like to kick your ***.
This post was written back in 2007, and although no one is sure what became of these two rescued dogs since then, I would imagine that they were eventually put into loving homes after they were house broken. Animals aren’t something to just discard once they “aren’t cute” anymore. An animal is a friend for life, and once they become a part of your family, it’s hard to imagine life in any other way.
