You aren't looking for them, but I found your 2 dogs (PGH)

This is an add that appeared on Pittsburg's Craig's List late last week.  I can't begin to tell you how much I agree with this!!!

Sigh. No one is looking for these guys. And I see why.

They hump everything in sight, try to dominate our old doggies, try to
eat our cats and pee on everything and bark at everything. Neurotic,
lick constantly. They know no commands, either in English or Spanish.
They are aggressive and most likely lived in a puppy mill.

You dumped them, probably, and we picked them up before they were killed
by traffic. Unneutered, no tags, two small males under a year old.

I hate you, person who dumped these dogs.

There are no lost ads on phone poles, no lost ad on Craig's list, no
lost ad in the paper.

We put signs up all over, put a found notice in at the local pounds. If
you were looking for these filthy little ragamuffins, you would have
found them.

We are afraid to take them to the pound because under stress, your dogs
were snappy and horribly afraid, and dogs are judged by temperament for
adoption placement. They would not have passed that test.

However...

They are, under their filth, mats and horrible habits, adorable.

They have learned "Quiet," "Come," "Sit."

They have stopped being so neurotic and we have broken most of their bad
habits in just a few days.

They are smart and sweet and are looking for guidance and WANT to be
good little dogs.

One is a purebred little white and buff guy with an under bite, the
other is a brown little dog that looks almost exactly like a miniature
version of a larger breed dog. They know each other and were obviously
(by the same bad habits) raised (poorly) together.

We will get them neutered, train them and get them into a good, loving
home with people who use the brains God gave them.

If these are your dogs, come on by. Not so you can have them back. So I
can kick your ass.

Thank you for sharing Loretta :o) How sad, what some people do to animals. But so good to hear that these two are being looked after and are being given the love every single dog deserves :o) I hope they find a great home for them both xxxx

How said that people can treat dogs like this, it probably was best they were let go and you found them soon as what would there life be now if not. Too many people have pets that dont deserve them. Those little guys are very lucky to be found by a caring loving person who can teach and guide them its the same as with children you need to care, love and teach. Bless you for giving them a better life.
