My husband says we must have the word 'Sucker' tatooed on our foreheads. To make a long story short, a teenage girl rang our doorbell last night around 7:00 and had a puppy in her arms. She said she found it in our front yard about an hour before and took it home - but her dad wasn't going to let her keep it in the garage until this morning to take it to the shelter. He wanted her to just put the little thing back in our front yard and leave it. This poor little puppy is probably about 8 weeks old - very chubby and well fed - and scared. Of course we couldn't just leave her in our front yard - especially with all of the coyotes in the area. She spent the night in the house with us and neither of us slept much last night. I will be taking her to the shelter this morning and paying her adoption fee. It was just a few months ago that my husband came home with a puppy that followed him around the neighborhood when he was running.

Geesh! I do think we have sucker written all over us.

It is the niceness attraction factor. Someone may have left him there knowing you would take care of it. Or perhaps the girl needed to find a home for a puppy and made up the story, which still gets you to the same place.

HG - that made me laugh a little. I have seen the Disney version - but my husband and I have tickets to see the play in Nashville in May.

What a coincidence! Just last night a puppy found a teenage girl and brought her to our doorstep. Of course we couldn't just leave her in our front yard - especially with all of the coyotes in the area. She spent the night in the house with us and neither of us slept much last night.

Skittles,

Instead of a shelter, consider finding a reputable rescue! If you're willing to pay the adoption fee for her, they will be happy to help you adopt it out.

What kind of puppy does it appear to be?

Good idea B_F - but we cannot keep her any longer - our very old basenji isn't doing well with her in the house. She looks like (by my sister looking at the picture and I agree) that she might be a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. The shelter here is very good - and is no-kill. She will be adopted very quickly.

I had 15 dogs at one time because people dropped them off at my place on the river...I swore after all that, I'd never have more than 2 again...then I had 7 at once and now I have 4. At least I'm making progress. smile

That's great news! Many "shelters" are not very good frown

Coming soon to a theater near you...TRANSPORTER 4 - Starring Jason Statham...in this exciting episode, Frank is tasked with delivering a dog cross country, only to find that the microchip identifier located in the dog is really the plans for a nuclear weapon that can be used to destroy downtown San Diego. Frank must deliver the dog to the unsuspecting banker, remove the microchip, kill a bunch of bad guys, and scowl a whole bunch while driving the new Acura NSX.

She has been dropped off - received her first puppy shot - and her adoption fee has been paid. That was very difficult, but we had no other option. I'm sure they will find her a good home.

In the film's most climactic scene, he screeches the Acura into iDp's driveway, bangs open the front door...

Fixed laugh

Fixed more wink
