    I just read a friend's livejournal entry about a dog being abandoned by her friend's roommate .... she posted the dogs pictures in an effort to try to find a new home for the poor dog.

    After seeing the dog's sad eyes in those pictures, I started crying like a baby ... I simply can't comprehend why would anyone abandon their pet. Did they ever love the dog? IF so, how could they just walk away from it?

    To me, abandoning one's pet is tantamount to abandoning one's child.

    </emotional rant>

    :frown:

    Here's the abandoned little thing that now calls Atlanta's Humane Society its home... her name is Ruby

    :(

    Maybe Radioman will take her, he lives in Atlanta!

    That's why we get all our pets at shelters, I recommend everyone do the same when you're ready for a new pet.

    Abandoning pets is pretty darned uncaring.

    If my dog suddenly went nuts and started biting ppl or pooping on the carpet I may have it put down. Dumping it on the street isn't the answer.

    Whoever thinks about dating this person who did the abandoning should take this into consideration.

    And they should think twice before adopting a pit mix if they aren't up on their dog skills.

    We lived in the country for 15 years and folks were constantly dumping cats and dogs along our road. Can't remember all the pets we took in, litters of critters born and raised and given away to what we hoped were "good homes". Those we kept we sent to the vet to get clipped. We were hip. Now we live in the city, have one kitty, and a dog that eats like a hog.

    People who abandon their pets deserve very little respect from me.

    More like the Scorn the slimers deserve.

    I would never trust one not to abandon me as well.

    My insane Parson Russell Terrorist came from the humane society.

    As have most of my dogs, come to think of it.

    people who abandon their pets should get the same treatment they showed their animal. I had to stop watching Animal Cops because I would spend the whole show crying and yelling at the tv.
