    Default Sending out a puppy prayer

    Hello all.
    Returned from vacation just two hours ago and am so excited to pick up Winslow in the morning.

    Our homecoming wasn't what I expected, when the saddest sight of a pitbull I've ever laid eyes on ran to our car begging for help. It was strange - he did not want to be approached but he knew we were the ones who opened doors to warmer shelters.

    Anyway, I called the police who already knew of someone dropping a dog out of their van, but they didn't know where it was. Fortunately they came within seconds, and he was begging at my neighbors' door. The officer went to see if she could leash him; he growled. Then she pulled her car closer to him, and he climbed inside between the time it took to open the back door and then return from grabbing some of Winslow's food. He was off to the vet for help but I just don't know.. I've never seen an animal in that shape before. It took a few seconds for me to be sure that it actually was a dog!

    I can't get the image of him out of my head, the sound of his voice when he called out near the door. The shape of his back, how tightly his tail was tucked between his legs... and those eyes.

    Mine has to wait til morning, but please give your babies a squeeze tonight for all those poor animals out there who need help. It's so cold, and god he was just so scared.

    That's so heartbreaking to hear, @jenzaar. Makes me so very sad. I do hope that pup makes it and eventually finds a good home. How heartless is that to just dump your dog?!!?? I can't believe it sometimes and I don't WANT to believe it but i know it's a sad reality that happens so often. Do you think you'd be able to find out the status of this pooch you found (or who found you)? I just pray for a happy ending for this guy.

    Brings tears to my eyes and breaks my heart knowing this is going on.
    I am thankful you were there and called and he's getting help.

    On our local news they reported 30 horses in a pasture w/no shelter
    in *10 degrees last night (wind chill below zero w/N winds) some with
    ribs sticking out.

    I pray for man & beast...to live together in harmony, kindness & love.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Thank you. I don't understand how it goes on either, a question I think I've asked since I was very young. He was terribly skinny and obviously not well cared for by whoever did this to home. Hope it's only better from here.
    I forgot to ask where he'd be going, but I can probably go in tomorrow and ask which vet. I'm not completely sure I want to, though I don't know why. I will certainly post any updates if I do have them.

    I hesitated, not knowing if I should be calling the police. Local spca only answers in the day and I didn't know if it was a true emergency. They were more than happy that I called, and to help, and I'm very thankful for that.

    Those poor horses. Oh goodness it's awful what we put each other through.

    Thanks for your kind words.

    Aww poor baby. Thank goodness you found him, and hopefully with help he can recover, and find a new home. I don't understand how people can be so heartless and cruel to do abuse defenceless animals. If you don't want a pet to be part of your life forever, and to be part of your family, then don't get a dog, you don't deserve one. And if you find for some reason you can no longer take care of your pet, don't throw it away, or don't abandon it, please bring him to a shelter, or find him a good home where he will be loved.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    This is breaking my heart. I hope you can find out how he is doing and give us an update. I have been on the lookout since this extreme cold started to make sure cats and dogs are properly taken care of. I cant imagine being a homeless animal or human right now. We have friends staying with us because their heat is out. I would take in everyone if I could. Give Winslow lots of good lovins today too!

    Living where I live, I know how heartless people can be with animals. And if you don't see it, all you have to do is watch TV Pitbulls and Parolees, to see what so called "people" do to dogs. What ever they did, should have to be done to THEM! That should be the punishment! Oh yeah-and Michael Vick-the big HERO

    I don't even think I saw a dog in this one's shape on Pitbulls and Parolees.
    It must be awful to see that often. I've never witnessed any kind of animal in such poor health before and it was a rude awakening.

    I will certainly keep you all posted. I've been loving on him as much as I can - he seems a little lost. I know he's happy to see us but he's just a bit off, so I'm taking it slow and giving him space.

    Thank you all for your comments. I don't think I expected that. I mean I posted it here cause I know we care like crazy for pooches, especially rescues, but it just tears at my heart. I don't think my husband understands how much these things affect me so it's nice to see that you all know what I feel.
