Just need to VENT-- UPDATE!!!!
Well sorry you all have to listen to this but I just need to vent.2 days ago I received a call from a coworker who runs a trailer court and someone moved out and left their dog there to fend for it's self.A really nice Golden Lab pup.He is pretty skinny So now I have another dog to try and fix.Why do people do this Larry figures he was on his own for a month.The owner just moved out without telling anyone and just left the dog I get so pissed at people who do this And now with people not being able to afford there houses they are moving to apartments and just leaving their animals to fend for themselves.Why can't these people at least drop them off at a shelter.This dogs ribs are sticking out and you can see his back bones.Know I have to fatten him up and try to find a new home for him.Don't get me wrong I love helping animals but why can't people take responsibility for their for their pets.We have a no kill sanctuary about 10 miles away and they are over run with animals of all kinds.They even have pet rats that people left them.They will take any animal.So here I am with poor BJ (thats what I named him) who is skinny and hungry as hell.He is such a nice dog too so hopefully I can fatten him up, train him and find him a new home.He has a cut on his front pad so he limps around.He just such a sweet dog I just can't imagine someone leaving him to fend for himself.
Thanks for letting me rant on about BJ's owners.I just get so upset I needed to vent a little bit.

Oh what a beautiful dog. I can't think of the word I want but can't the trailer park give the name of the people to the dog officer. That is a bad case of dog neglect. I also live in a trailer park and the same thing people move and leave the cats. I can't believe that people can do this. Hope everything goes well and you can find a good home for BJ.

I don't understand it either, Julie. The things people do sometimes just amaze me.

I'm so glad you got him for now and can give him some food and love so he'll make someone a nice pet. He's a beautiful dog and is so sweet looking!

This type of thing actually breaks my heart, but thankfully, BJ, has a loving friend in you to take of him until he is fit enough to find a 'real' home with loving people. No one has to have a pet, they are not something you 'throw-away' and I can certainly understand your anger and frustration. It absolutey incites me. Thank God for good and caring people like yourself.

You're awesome to take him in and fatten him up. He's so gorgeous you shouldn't have any trouble finding him a loving home. I know our local SPCA will allow you to post an animal on their website for the visability, but you can adopt it out on your own terms.
As for people - I'm going to avoid my soapbox about how people treat their animals....However, when I was working for the SPCA in a college town come the end of the sememster we always knew we would get phone calls from apartment complexes when kids went home to mom and dad and couldn't take the pets with them so they would leave them in the apartment.

What a lovely looking dog. I too don't understand how people can just abandon their pets. He must be so happy that you found him.

That poor sweet dog! He's beautiful. How wonderful of you to care for him. I can't understand how people can be so cruel and hateful. Thank goodness for great people like you.

OK.. Let me help you on the soap box.. That is inexcusable! Thank God for people like you. He seems so sweet! I love Labs. Give him an extra hug for me. I wish I was closer so I could help out. I admire you!

Those people should be forced to live in the same conditions!
Good for you for being such a kind and compassionate person.

Perhaps if you post this in Knitters Knear you, BJ could find a loving home with a wonderful KHer.
