Three days ago two male puppies showed up at my street. First time I saw them I instantly knew that they were not from the neighborhood. I was a little apprehensive thinking that they were just taking a walk around the neighborhood, but they had no collar nor id tags on them.
That night I gave them water and food and they slept in front of my house. Next morning they disappeared. I thought that they had gone back home or that someone had decided to take them in.
Then on my way to work this morning I saw them two blocks away from my house. I immediately went back and told my father to keep an eye on them and to give them food and water.
In the afternoon, on my way back from work I saw them about ten houses away from mine. I got some food and lured them into my backyard. They are as sweet and cute as can be. I just sneaked out for a while and they were sleeping peacefully. Tomorrow morning I'm taking them to the local shelter, they deserve a good home and someone that can provide all the time, care and love in the world.
The smaller of the two is underweight and gets all nervous when I make sudden movements, or loud noises. Seems that they were mistreated at some point.
My father keeps telling me that they probably belong to someone and that they ran away. But my opinion is different.
I cannot comprehend how someone can throw a defenseless puppy out to the streets. The owner probably got tired of them and took the easiest route.
You are right. If you can't keep them until you find their owner or a good home, then taking them to the shelter is the right thing. There are too many dangers on the streets for the poor guys. They will be so much safer at the shelter and if their owners are looking for them they can find them there. Hopefully, the shelter staff will educate them about responsible pet care. They don't sound very socialized from what you describe, so they may have spent their whole lives on the streets. Hopefully they will find good forever homes.
Well you did the right thing by taking them in and making a good decision taking them to the shelter. But you dont know for sure that the owner was mistreating them. Are they younger dogs or a little older?
I am sure it is a fact the owner was mis treating them or else they would not have been loose especially for so long with no one out and about looking for them.For them to be running the streets free at such a young age is neglet in its self.I hope they find good homes.
This morning I took the puppies to the shelter, before going to work. Iím happy to report that they are well on their way to getting the loving homes they deserve. The lady at the shelter did say that they were showing signs of neglect.
But this morning had its share of drama. We had a plan and everything set up, the kennel inside the car, treats set up just in case they were apprehensive on getting into the car - well everything planned out even what time to leave the house so I could get to work on time. But these guys had other plans for me. While I was taking a shower I heard my father yelling from the street - "It's getting away!!!", I proceeded to ask "who!?" and I understood that my dog Lucy was running away. I ran out of the shower (all wet and full of soap) crazy and hysterical, put on my bath robe and ran outside. To my surprise, it was the two puppies and not my dog that were trying to get away from my father. They had found a gap in the fence and tried to make a run for it. But nothing was stopping me from getting them a second chance. We got them into the kennel until we were ready to leave.
The trip to the shelter was uneventful. And as I said at the beginning, they are on their way to a second chance - a good loving home.
