Miserable bastards

I wish I could execute every miserable motherfucker who takes a dog and chains it up and leaves it. I love my dogs so and their needs for companionship and interaction and play are so obvious if you pay even the tiniest bit of attention. I can't steal every dog left this way and it and breaks my heart. I'm stealing a dog today, though. I know the chances are that this soulless bastard will just get another one, but I can't stand seeing this dog's misery any longer.

When I lived in Washington my neighbors (a little row of townhouses) got a pit bull pup. Once the pup (who was a sweet thing) got too big to be cute, they chained her in the backyard and ignored her. She sat out back flipping her dish over and looking miserable.

When winter came, a neighbor and I called the local SPCA and asked if this constituted abuse, so they would come remove the dog. Nope - there was a little shelter, so it was just on the edge.

We thought about stealing her, but couldn't figure out what to do with her afterwards. Placing a pit bull pup is not that easy.

Fortunately, after a while the dog went to live with the wife's family, who had a bigger house with kids around to play with the dog. The worst thing about it - they might have kids some day. Ugh.

i would also contact your local humane society - my sister is president of one in western maryland and gets calls about this all the time... people are stupid and when winter hits, they seem to get even dumber... you go girl!

I would steal the dog too. I'm so sorry you had to witness this. Luckily, I never have. Our next door neighbors, however, keep their two hunting dogs outdoors in a kennel year round. Granted it is a very nice and well-insulated kennel, it still makes me sad. And I think they are very jealous of my Gracie, who is basically on teh same level with the humans in this house (on the leather furniture, sleeps in bed with us, gets more attention piled on her than most people's children).

Hugs,
jessica

There are dog people. There are cat people. There are cruel people.

Our vet gave us a dog that some one stole because she was being neglected and abused. She was a sweet dog, but so traumatized that she would roll over on her back with her paws up if I even looked at her. She would only take food if it was put in her bowl (not from your hand), and she had no idea what toys were.

Our kitten taught her how play, and she became a very affectionate dog, though, for the 15 years we had her she was still afraid of strangers.

I never met the man who stole her, but I'm still glad he did!

I hope your rescue mission was successful.

My pound puppy had abandonment issues. He had obviously been beaten, and although I gave him a loving home, he was never quite a normal dog, always fear biting and worrying his paws and walking circles in a room if he got worried.

We are poor stewarts of this earth. And we (as a species) do not deserve the love and loyalty of these spectacular animals.
