I don't, living on Long Island and all. :dance:

Yvette- do you think someone will come forward with leads on who did this? I mean someone must recognize the puppy or have a littermate.


I am hoping!!
We made the KNDU news in Portland/Vancouver last night...amazing...

Yea!

Wow...from the side he looks like a very nicely bred Aussie too. Do you mind if I post his pics on some Aussie boards? I'm just wondering if anyone that breeds in your area might know where he came from...

That's just sick...I hope karma comes to this criminal on swift wings.

You know I hate to rain on anyone's parade but has anyone stopped to think that perhaps the puppy ate the rat bait without the previous owners knowing about it. It is after all a puppy and we all know how mischievous they can be. We see dogs in work all the time where the owner swears they could not have gotten into anything yet it's obvious they did. We see pot toxicity, mushrooms (the kind in your yard), compost, rat bait, human medicine, chocolate, slug bait, etc. Many owners are completely clueless that their pet would even think about eating stuff like that.
Obviously whomever had this pup before was a total jerk for tossing him out the way they did. Could they have purposely fed him the stuff, yes but I wonder if it isn't more likely that he got into it on accident.
I'm glad that you were there to take this poor little guy in (he's totally cute!) and provide a means to a better life for him. Thank you for that!

Thanks Pockepit..I was wondering the same thing. I know with the stuff we all see, it's easy to jump to some pretty nasty conclusions...but sometimes dogs eat things they aren't suppose to and while yes it's possible it was intentional...isn't it also possible that the pup was a pup and got into something?

Oh yeah that was my first thought. Oh he accidently ate it.
The guy from the city pointed out that if someone went to all the trouble to tie him in a plastic bag and fling him out on a fairly deserted road, it wasn't a stretch of the imagination that they may have fed him the poison too.
And in fact, it doesn't act immediately - so they might have fed it to him hoping he'd die, and a few days later, he was still alive - so they took him for the drive :evil: If that's what happened, they did not understand how the poison worked (highly likely since we've had a number of people kill themselves lately by bringing generators into their houses to run space heaters!!!)
Either way, he's on the mend ;)
And on the major news channel, KOMO in Seattle now, too!!

Not if it has HOME DEPOT written on the side of it....then I lose all perspective.

Even if he accidentally ingested poison, he was still thrown from a moving car. That is abuse, plain and simple.

Oh, absolutely. I don't think anyone here will dispute that. :)

What I'm GUESSING and of course cannot prove without someone stepping forward - is that they gave him the stuff, and when he didn't die (it takes a few days to show symptoms) they took him for a "drive" in the country :evil:

Now I have about 25 adoption queries, many of whom have not completed an application, so that'll help weed through them.
He was on the news in Seattle last night, and Vancouver, WA/Portland, OR, yesterday.

I hope he winds up in the home he deserves. I admire you for what you do. Keep up the good work!

I just MIGHT. I saw the Secret Santa photos of him. He would be SO happy snuggled up with me on my new comforter!

Laddie got adopted!!!! His story will be on http://www.keprtv.com but in the meantime - his last day with us...

Image

Image

His damaged ear - I don't know yet what they'll run on the air but part of his ear actually fell OFF - it was damaged from the compression we had to use to stop the bleeding, and I mentioned it to the adopters and the news gal asked me about it after they left...!!! Anyway the vet trimmed off the jagged edge of the part that was left, so it's "neater" looking!

And YES he is as soft as he looks!
