    @betterxthanxnew Maybe you could call the humane society and tell them the situation that this dog was in,and was left alone in a back yard, and no one even knew she was missing. ?? If not, I have some $ that I could loan you, and maybe some others could chip in. I don't want her to have to go back there. You know she doesn't REALLY care about the dog-just figure she can make some$$ with pups!

    @Manydogs Thank you so much, we couldn't possibly borrow money from you though. We are on a tight budget (thank you student loans) and I hate to think of how long it would take me to pay you back 🙁 We are tinkering with the idea of starting a Go Fund Me. Both my sister and my Aunt seem to think it's worth a shot. Although I think it's a long one....I do really believe she just wants to make money! It's so sad, we really do not want her going back there either. I truly believe she will end up in the same boat as before. I don't know anyone that would claim to "love" their dog, but then relocate it somewhere (due to housing issues, which we don't even know if that was truly resolved?) and not even check on it (for who knows how long?), to the point that she didn't even know her dog was missing! When was she planning on even getting her dog back from her "friend" ??Such total ludicrous. Such a person shouldn't even own a dog 😔

    We can't post the go fund me here... but I would be willing to help. I hate to see her go back ---- offer the lady $1000. You and hubby come up with 500 and the go fund me the other 500.... it is worth a shot . And, tell her to come to you!

    @Manydogs @2BullyMama Oh yes I know I can't post it on here. I did make one though, and my husband and I have both shared on Facebook. Hopefully more people will as well. If your interested or know anyone who may be, we could figure out a way to get the link to you. Or feel free to friend me on facebook- Tasha Penwell. I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing this, never have had to before. I hope and pray that were able to make this happen. I set the goal for $1000, but if we make it to $500 I will ask the owner if she's willing to take $1000 (with $500 of our own). Just holding my breath to wait and see what will happen.
    In other news the dogs are currently cuddled up napping on the couch after a long walk I'll see if I can attach a pic.
    Thank you so much for your encouragement.

    Goodness gracious, what a story! I'm going to look you up on Facebook now and donate. I think you have a good chance on the go fund me. I would make sure she had documentation before you pay her any amount for the dog. It definitely sounds like she will get better care in your house than theirs. I don't believe they paid 3k for Josie. I wouldn't abandon my pet like that, even in the worst situation and I certainly wouldn't if I paid 3k for her. We had a dog at the time my 3 children were born and my husband worked out of town. He wouldn't come home for a couple months at a time. I never once had our dog tied up outside, let anyone watch him outside of my home, that's just awful. I think Rosco comes from a similar situation. Good luck!! I hope you get to keep her.

    @BethD thank you so much, we will definitely be asking for documentation before we purchase or return her. The whole situation is just crazy, and my heart breaks for Josie. I know if anything happened to our EB, Effie, I would have jumped in my car that very day. It just seems insane to me that anyone would do that, and not even know their dog was missing!! I think I got your friends request on FB, but when I went to accept it, it disappeared.

    @2BullyMama @BethD
    Quick update on Josie- for those who have been following the story. As of yesterday morning (3/13) we had reached a 50% goal with our Go Fund Me Page at $550. I attempted to contact the owner to see if she would be willing to accept a $1000 re-homing fee for Josie (with $500 of our own money). I received no response. I tried again yesterday evening- still no response. I sent a text to her this morning, and now I am waiting to see if I hear anything. Once she responds I WILL be requesting documentation (proof of ownership). We are willing to pay up to the $1500 that she originally requested. I am a very non-confrontational sort of person- I had really hoped to come to an amicable re-homing agreement (provided that she can submit valid proof of ownership). The fact that she won't respond to me now is beyond frustrating. We may end up going to court in the long run, if we can't reasonably work this out. In which case, we will be using our raised funds for that purpose. I do know that we will NOT be returning Josie this weekend though. We have now met our $1000 goal that we set on Go Fund Me- I am so moved & grateful by the generosity that has been shown to us (including several donations from very kind ladies on EBN). It's nice to know that the world can still be a good place, and that so many people care about what happens to Josie!!!
    If anyone has any advice for what we should do moving forward, we are more than willing to hear it! Our game plan for now is to try & call the owner one more time this evening. If she answers we are going to try and hash out a re-homing agreement & ask for proof of ownership. If she won't provide that, then we will not be paying for or returning Josie. If she can provide it, then we are more than happy to pay her & be done with it. If for some reason she now refuses to sell- she can take us to court (or we may be taking her- or at least contacting a lawyer about getting "transfer of title" of ownership, if that's what it takes). We need to have some kind of proof of ownership to present to our vet so that we are able to get Josie seen. Our vet was only willing to give her a "once" over and a rabies shot when we took her in (once they found that microchip). She needs a heart worm test, blood work, stool sample, de-worming, spay surgery etc. All the good stuff- which is normally covered by our wellness plan, if only we were able to add her to it!
    Well, that's where we are at with it at this point. Thank you again for all the love & support.

    @2BullyMama @BethD
    I FINALLY spoke to Josie's owner this morning (talk about last minute!). She is still willing to sell her to us for $1500. She said she has a folder of Josie's documentation from the pet store where they bought her & she will give it to us as proof of ownership. We are so excited & so thankful that this worked out!
    She told me that she thinks Josie is better off with us, because her land lord still will not let them have a dog, and Josie would have been going to stay with her husband's aunt, until they could find her a permanent home (are you kidding me!?- this kinda crap is how she ended up in this situation in the first place). Luckily this has all worked out for the best. We will be meeting up with her this weekend while we are in Roanoke to complete the Bill of Sale & get her documentation.
    I am working until 1pm today, and then we will be headed out to Roanoke We can't wait to make this official. She is already such a loved part of our family We are so unbelievably grateful to everyone who donated to the cause, or just offered their support & wisdom.

    So gotta say this--- do not take Josie with you, just in case of any shenanigans
