pics of the Doggie i dropped off at the shelter today..

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My neighbor called me today saying she found a puppy while she was walking to work earlier. I picked both of them up and we drove to a local animal hospital where they checked to see if the dog was chipped..of course the loving owners not only did not put on a collar but noooo chip either..ARr
So i tried everything to keep the little Guy at my house but i could not..
I had to drop him off at the animal shelter probably 20 mins away, i did not want to but i had no choice. Little guy fell asleep in the back seat of my TT and he looked sooo cute. i get to the animal shelter and he started barking at the other dogs but oddly listened to me the whole time, that makes it soo much easier on me to walk out on him.
I feel like ****, i mean really feel like ****. the good news is the Animal shelter I just so meanly left him at is one of the best around and there are lots of big houses so maybe hopefully someone will adopt him. i had to sign a waiver like paper basically stating its ok for them to do what they need to do with him...dude that's just not right on me.. when i got back in the neighborhood i drove around a few blocks where he was found trying to see if anyone was looking for him...of course there was no one.

at first i was pretty strong but once he fell asleep in the car i went to ****..feeling wise.

here is a quote from the myspace bulletin i posted on my page, my bars page and my lighting companies page. look at him Headfi...someone come to Chicago and pick him up..

found this Little Cutie trying to cross Archer Ave right off of Parkside earlier today. Dog had no tags but seemed to be young if not a puppy.
He is at the Animal Welfare League on 10305 South west highway..

He is a good looking dog. And the fact that he fell asleep in a stranger's car says he's got a great temperment. I hope he finds a good home!

You did the right thing. I'm a dog lover as well and have a wonderful Sheltie that I can't imagine anything happening to.

With a bit of luck he'll end up in a good home.

hopefully he will find a wonderful home. i am a huge dog/animal lover and it saddens me every time i see one without a home.

Maybe, if you can do it, adopt him?

If he seems to be even-tempered, well-behaved and you feel like crap... do it!

I remember the time when I have to drop a lost old keeshond (pure bred) in spca. He was a good mannered dog and it seems he was abandoned because he's too old. I wish I can adopt him but I don't have my own place and we have 2 dogs already. I shed my tears dropping him in SPCA eventhough he's only with me for 2 nights. I promised myself not to let this kind of thing happen to my dog, I will let them lived their life in dignity until their end of life.

well, that does suck, but you know what? you actually gave him a shot, instead of just turning away and not caring, you picked him up, you took him to the vet; he may get adopted, and of course he may not, but you still did good

^ Agreed with what uzziah has posted. That is indeed a good looking puppy and you did good by turning the puppy to the animal hospital to give a him a check up and hopefully a good home. You have given the puppy a good chance of growing up in a healthy home. I know of some people that wouldn't even give the time of day to help out a stray puppy.

Whatever it is that draws people to certain animals, that dog has it in spades. That's a face you just can't walk away from, and I'm sure he'll have that same effect on someone else. I imagine he'll be one of the lucky ones to find a home. If I lived in Chicago I would already have made the trip to the shelter to adopt him.

Poor fella. Domesticated animals are our children too, and should never be abandoned. We invited them into human society, so they need our help, like we help eachother you know? He looks like a sweet pooch and good for you Billy for sparing him suffering.

Hes a lucky one to have met good people like you sire. I know exactly how you must have felt, he looked so cute and helpless in your backseat Hopfully someone will adopt him and give him the love he deserved

bhd, if you want to do a little bit more to help increase the odds for this puppy, search to see if there is a beagle or hound rescue group in your area, and alert them to the fact that you have dropped off this puppy at the shelter. My wife and I volunteer with a Siberian Husky Rescue group in the Philadelphia area. When the group becomes aware of a Husky in a shelter anywhere in the greater Philadelphia area, its members arrange to pull the dog from the shelter and foster it until an appropriate adoption can be arranged. That way it is assured that the dog will find a home rather than being put down.

There may be groups in your area that will do the same thing for this puppy.
