mscat Posted January 29, 2011 Report Share Posted January 29, 2011 My brother found a puppy a couple of weeks ago. She was wet, cold, stinky , and matted. He gave her to me. I had cleaned her up, been feeding her real healthy too. Problem is I was in a community for this type of breed. Most people said to try and find her owners... I did , to no advail. I decided to keep her as a service dog. That was not the problem. The people in that community gave me a lot of crap about it. Telling me notto keep her , and she was not mine to keep . This poor pup had no ID , tags anything. She also had the sniffles, like a cold. WEll these people know the city I am from and state and threatend to call animal services in my county and city. I got mad , and wrote how i felt. Nobody seemed to care of the condition she was found in. Only that she she was found... I called her a rescue . Because if it was not for my brother finding her , she would of probably died of exposure. I got banned there, because I said a few choice words. But, I asked them to remove me as a member after being one for nearly 3 years and even donated money to them. Of course I would not of wanted to keep her if I knew the owners or the owners were looking for her. I feel like i was thrown under the bus. Still shaking a bit from the experience , too many haters in that community. I think of myself as a nice person. But was pushed ovre the edge by those people. Yes , I have to realize it was an online community. But somehow I feel really bad for trying to do the right thing. This pup is only around 5 months old. Nobody claimed her . My dogs are my life. It is me and my disabled child only here, and it is a small town that we live in. There are so many dogs and cats roaming around the streets all the time. A lot of them end up getting caught by the dog catcher. And the shelter only holds them for so long before they are destroyed. I am ususally a calm person, however I know I lost my temper . I liked that dog community , but this was too much to take, and I let loose. I guess I felt like it was a threat to me , when one wrote down the shelter phone numbers in my area. Acting like i stole her or just took her. That was not the case. Geez, it has been 2 weeks already . NO word on a lost pup anywhere . So am I in the wrong? for wanting to keep her and provide for her lots of love and attention? Including vet care .. :confused: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
