I smell a smelly- smell

My boyfriend’s mother is crazy. This wouldn’t bother me so much if it weren’t for the fact that my boyfriends crazy mother insists of starving and abusing their dogs. This now includes a 6 week old male presa canario. Through no fault of my boyfriends one of the male dogs killed another one of their male dogs not 4 days ago; there is rarely enough food in the house for 1 dog despite the fact that they have 5 and because my boyfriend cannot constantly baby-sit the dogs they are often forced to stay in the bathroom or laundry room for hours at a time since both my boyfriends mother and his sister refuse to come home anytime before 9 at night to take care of them

Fortunately my boyfriend’s crazy mother has seen fit to give me the 6 week old puppy.

Unfortunately I already have 4 grown dogs and cannot keep him.

I can, however, foster him temporarily (unbeknownst to the mother of my boyfriend) as long as I have a forever home already lined up.

PLEASE help me! I have fallen in love with this puppy and it kills me to see him treated the way he is treated by this awful woman and my boyfriend has finally given up trying to provide a home for him that he just can’t provide for all 5 animals. He is so sweet and very calm. He is also in the beginning stages of house training and is more than okay with being an outside dog if need be.

Holy crapola! I am so sorry this is happening. It makes me SICK.

Is there a rescue near you that you could contact? Could you post on petfinder.org?

I do hope you get some help! I'd help if I weren't so far away.

Keep us posted. And do try and contact a rescue. I can help you find one if you need help.

Take me to the- park, or I eat- the remote

This may sound really cruel, but if they aren't feeding the dogs, could you not call animal control or the humane society?

The puppy is adorable, and I wish you the best of luck finding him a home...
