New favorite craigs list ad…….

Couldn’t have said this better…in many respects.

You aren’t looking for them, but I found your two dogs

Sigh. No one is looking for these guys. And I see why.

They hump everything in sight, try to dominate our old doggies, try to
eat our cats and pee on everything and bark at everything. Neurotic,
lick constantly. They know no commands, either in English or Spanish.
They are aggressive and most likely lived in a puppy mill.

You dumped them, probably, and we picked them up before they were killed
by traffic. Unneutered, no tags, two small males under a year old.

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. 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. Not so you can have them back. So I
can kick your ass.

    Most of my fosters are “OTIs,” meaning they are owner turn-ins for various reasons, i.e., can’t be housetrained, eats swimsuits, family doesn’t have time, nips/bites the children/grandchildren, etc., etc. ad nauseum. Without fail — and with consistency, patience and training — each one has gone on to be a loved, well-adjusted member of their new household. A common statement is, “We can’t believe someone gave this dog up — he/she is just perfect!!”

    With rare exception, it is the owner who fails the dog.

    I am constantly amazed and horrified at the cluelessness of educated people when it comes to dogs, much less those whose idea of having a dog is a pitbull chained in the front yard. My own neighbors are on their second dog. First one spent her entire life in the backyard, begging for attention when someone finally showed up, only to be chastised for doing so. She finally died, and now, second dog, cute little mini-shnauzer, is also confined to the backyard. The “New” has worn off. She’s not housebroken, barks all the time, chases their chickens, jumps frantically on everyone. when someone does come out and play with her, she’s so frantic that they end up putting her into her confinement pen, and continuing to ignore her plantive pleas for attention and love. I offered them books and advice, gave them the phone # of my trainer, urged them to take her to training classes, offered my help. They see me out training and walking my dogs every single day. I know that this little cutie will spend her entire life, day,night, winter, summer, living in their backyard, all alone, with only an occasional interaction from her humans. What is wrong with people????
