I believe in honoring a dog’s space. Contrary to some popular beliefs, dogs are not into bad behavior just to show you that they are the “boss.” If they don’t want to do something, I always want to know why, and then show them how to do it if they don’t have a good reason to not do it
What we’re referring to in this article is the plight of the poor, the old, or the sick, who love their pets and are faced with sometimes insurmountable challenges, and who feel that they have no other option for the sake of their pet. This also includes victims of domestic violence who feel that their beloved pet is in danger of being harmed or killed by the abuser they are trying to escape.
From all I’ve learned from dogs, they do not just simply walk away from a home where they are loved, and not return. Most of the impounded dogs listed as “strays” were actually taken by the owner and dumped somewhere far enough so that the dog cannot find the way home safely. And they remember that car ride.
She should have been spending her time romping with a family and exploring the joys of puppyhood. Instead, at her young age of 7 months, if even that, she was dodging trains and vehicles, scrounging dumpsters for anything to eat, and hunkering down in the dry and brittle field grasses to avoid “capture.” What had happened to her to make her run away?
This little girl is in rough shape and I am concerned for her being so close to whelping. No matter how hard they try, and Odessa seemed to be one of the better run ones, an “animal control facility” is no place for a sensitive dog of this breed (aussie/bc with blue eyes), and especially one that is so pregnant.
I named this puppy from cage 35 of Roswell Animal Control after one of my favorite movies, because Omar Sharif had just died and in an interview about his role as Dr. Zhivago, he stated that “Zhivago was a perfect human” . . . that’s how I felt about this puppy. . . he is perfect.
