I took Teko to the vet yesterday and while waiting, a woman came in & said her dog was too sick to get him out of the car. The vet asst. went out & carried in this bedraggled, mangey Husky-type dog. The dog was so sick it couldn't stand up. It also had a log chain around its neck, no collar, that the woman apparently just unhooked from whatever that poor dog had been tied to and brought him in.
The vet asst. was gagging while he carried the dog to the back room. The woman came out about 1/2 hour later w/the chain & no dog. She went to the window & paid & I overheard the lady @ the window saying she was sorry. The woman just said "oh well" and started to leave. I noticed that she stopped @ the bulletin board and pulled a tab w/a phone number on it advertising puppies for sale & she walked out.
Her dog was so neglected that it was FULL of maggots. You could see his skin moving. He was literally being eaten alive & this woman did nothing. She brought him in because the neighbors were complaining about the smell & the howling! Then she had the audacity to take the no. to get a new dog.
I informed the vet asst. that she took a number from the poster & they assured me that they would notify the owners of the puppies that she should NOT be given a puppy.
OMG! That is horrible.
Some people just make me sick!
omg, that is AWFUL!! the nerve of some people!!!
I don't get it.. ???
Why have a dog if that's what you plan for them....?
I hope the vet's get in touch with Animal Control.

Oh, dear God. > It makes me sick to just read about this story....let alone bearing witness. Sorry you had to see such a thing.

:'( :'( :'(
Godspeed big fella. Here's hoping you now sport a glorious coat, gleaming eyes, bright shiny teeth, and a tail that never stops wagging.....
I wish I hadn't read this.
I wish there weren't so many f'd up people who haven't a clue how to treat animals.
ahhhhh...wiping away tears.
What an awful story >, how can people be so cruel. The poor dog, I hope somebody reports her.
I agree with Mollyrock. That is sickening. I hope the vet reports her and I hope she never does this to another animal. Animals are so trusting and precious and don't deserve this type of treatment. Why just why do people have a dog if they are not going to take care of it and love it?
