    DefaultSad story, hopefully with happy ending (rescued dog)

    This came through our dog club email this morning, and the story just breaks my heart. :'( What is WRONG with people?

    I wish there was something I could do to help him find a home. I thought I would post here in case anyone just *happens* to be looking. You never know. I feel like this one really deserves a shot at a happily ever after.

    If you're interested, I would be more than happy to go visit him and give you the scoop on his personality. Here's the info that was forwarded to me:

    This sweet dog needs to find a home fast Please help me by sending this to everyone you can. We are in the Franklin, Tennessee area, but for the right home, we'll work out travel arrangements for this great dog!

    Please help!! I need a home!!

    My foster family calls me Pumpkin, because when they found me, my beautiful black coat was covered with orange spray paint by some folks who clearly didn't understand my worth. My foster Mom found me running down a busy road, dragging a lead and anchor behind me where I had been chained up with a collar so tight that I could barely swallow. I licked my foster Momís face for a long time when she removed my collar. Fortunately, those former owners did not step up to claim me - so I can go live with a better family!

    Despite my obvious neglect, I'm still cheerful and loving. I'm staying with kids and a variety of pets right now and I get along lovingly with everyone. I love my rawhide bones so much that I'm not at all destructive and I don't chew on anything else. I love to play and get scratched behind the ears.

    I am mostly black lab, but may have a little of some other nice kind of dog mixed in. I donít know when my birthday is, but I think Iím between 1 Ĺ and 2 years old. So, I have lots of wonderful years ahead of me. More than anything, I want a family to love and look after. I need a home and I need a home really quickly. Please, can you help a good dog? Please can you email my foster Mom at [email protected] ? I will have to go to the shelter soon, and I would really rather go home with you.

    why does he need a home fast if he's in a foster home?

    He's a real sweet dog.

    I have no idea. Don't know the people personally. It sounded like they don't have room to keep him, and are going to take him to a shelter if they can't find a home soon.

    They are probably not using the term "foster home" in the same way you think of it.

    He sounds like such a sweetheart. I hope he gets adopted by nice people soon.

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
