I do a lot of rescue transport and today was the first time I have ever seen someone at the pound “surrendering” a dog.
While waiting for my two cats – I heard the lady talking about her dog and why she was abandoning it.
Lady: He bit my niece the other day and I worry about him doing it again
Pound staff: Would you say he is aggressive?
Lady: No he is a good dog. . He isn’t as friendly as normal dogs. You know like normal dogs you can pick up and play with. What happens if nobody adopts him after the holding time.
Pound staff: He gets put to sleep
Lady seems concerned but still completes the transaction.
All the while the niece is standing there. Yanking the dog off the floor by the leash. I wonder why it bit her.
I get so angry with people. People really suck.
I went up and patted the dog after they left. He was really nervous but in no way aggressive or nasty. Poor guy. I hope someone adopts him and gives him the home he deserves.
