Just a Puppy

I fell in love with this puppy on Saturday.  She's probably a Golden Retriever/Cocker Spaniel mix, maybe with a few other breeds thrown in.  She's twelve weeks old and just adorable.  She was found wandering around a state park along with her brother.  They'd been dumped there - we assume they were left in a box because they were both covered with urine as though trapped in a small box for quite some time.  I don't understand how someone could do that.  But I'm glad someone else happened along at the right time and rescued them.  Both puppies have been adopted into good homes now.  I just hope that those were the only two puppies left there.  Because now all I can think about, is that maybe that box is still out there, with one or more puppies still inside.  It happens more than you ever want to know.  So give your dog a hug today and be grateful that when they were a puppy, they weren't abandoned to die because they were "just a puppy".

OMG look at that face!
I dont get why/how it's so easy for people to dump puppies/dogs anywhere. How hard is it to put up a Craigslist add, or drop them off at a shelter?

What a beautiful little girl. That happens all the time at our vet's office. They'll come to work in the morning and find a box on the doorstep with pups or kittens. It's hard to accept how cruel people can be.

Oh that face; I could just kiss it! I will never understand how people can be so cold. I am glad these two are now in loving homes.

What a terrible thing to do to a puppy - I just can't imagine what kind of monster would do something like that. No animal deserves to be treated like that - it just makes me so angry.

I am so happy that this beautiful girl and her brother found good forever homes - and I pray that some day that happens for all animals who need it.

Ugh. I always shudder to think what abandoned dogs actually go through. I'm so happy to hear that they got adopted!

That face!! I don't understand how anyone could do something so cruel. How you could live with yourself. There are much better ways to handle unwanted puppies. Leaving them in a box like that is reprehensible. It gives me chills to think there could have been more. I really hope not. And I am grateful to those who rescued these dogs from their horrifying situation.

We get dogs and cats dumped here all the time. Thankfully nothing in a condition like that. Glad they are in homes and happy!

I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND PEOPLE, WHY DON'T THEY JUST RING A CHARITY TO TAKE THEM.
