Im ding my laudry yesterday and there is this wnderfully friendly retevier mix that had been hanging aroung ther neighboor hood getting skinnyer and skinier SO i go to the store and buy some alpo and he gobbles it up

Now he is my friend as is following me everywhere
I call 5 rescue orgs and leave messages and it has been 36 hours later and not 1 damn call back. I cannot keep the dog i had to say goodbye to him couse A' i have a cat that is terrifeid of dogs and B and landlord who would freak if i brought a dog in

This dog is absoululty friendlly He is an adult male and has been neutered
No collar no tags no nothing he still seems in good health but his coat is starting to get brambles in it

WHat do I do now?

i dont own a car and i called all the places around here and have gotten no calls back

i would never call the county pound they are horrible I would rather have the dog take his chances out side
All I can do is go beack to where I fond him at the same tomes and get him some food and hope onr of the orgs calls me back

I cannot believe I havent heard a damn word from any of theses places

Aww Jim,that must be heartwrenching,poor pup:sad:
You don't know anyone who could take him in temporarily until a good shelter is found???
Somebody might be looking for him,what about putting up posters and try to get his picture,but of course he could be far away by the time you get a response if any...:sad:

Jim, i'm sorry you missed him, :fingerscr:fingerscr that he shows up again.

I mentioned in the TJT that if might be worthwhile to call Animal control just to make sure they didn't pick him up, someone else might have called them instead of you.

:pray: that he gets into your caring hands before something :evil:
