got an email for free puppies

December 21st, 2004, 07:22 AM
I got an e-mail this morning from a co-worker whose friend is giving away their puppies. I'm torn because I want a dog, but definately don't have the time for a puppy.

They said they are going to give them to a shelter at the end of this week if someone doesn't take them! The are a husky mix. Plus, they are only 4-5 weeks old!

I feel bad and was wondering if there is something I can or should do?

Just got an e-mail back from the coworker who said all the puppies have found an owner. At least they aren't going to the shelter!

Let's all say a prayer for these puppies that they don't end up being dumped after the holidays and the novelty of a puppy wears off. :sad:

I was hoping I would have been able to help, but the email came to be yesterday when I was off work sick.

I would have taken them all (at least temporarily) if it would have prevented them from going to a shelter.

I just hope they found good homes.

It's a sad day when puppies are given away by e-mail, and when they're too young to safely be seperated from the mother.

Lucky it's not one of my co-workers. I think I wouldn't be able to hold my tongue.

I am so thankful they did not end up as bucket puppies.

I'll spare the gruesome details but this is what the clueless lackingorasinglebraincellmoronredneck does in the south. (no typo, trying to sound 'nice'.)

We were actually going to take one of the puppies, but were too late.

Hate to tell you but they do it in Quebec as well or threaten to shoot them. Ontario the same... We got our wolfhound mix that way, guy shot the litter but missed the one pup and he hid under his siblings. Neighbours heard the shots and found him when they got there. His sister also made it as the bullet grazed only her shoulder.

Pleasant world we live in. :yuck:

I hope the first thing you are going to do is sugguest to your co-worker that she have the dog spayed right away. There are many, many dogs sitting in shelters and rescue waiting for homes and we don't need any more accidents. If you are not quite sure how to approach this topic please post back and I'm sure you will get lots of ideas.

The more I am around people, the more I gravitate towards animals.
