|A few days ago my family and I took in a temporary rescue Pomeranian, and the reason why is almost unbelievable.
Her previous owners had her since she was a pup, and now she's ten. They are moving (not very far away) and decide that they don't want her anymore. Not that they couldn't take her, they just didn't want her anymore. They were apparently having "such" a hard time finding a different home for her, that they said that, if we did not take her, they were ready to open the door and just let her go. Or, simply leave her in the house when they left o_O
Obviously, we could not leave her with these people. So she is temporarily with us until we can find her a proper home, or possibly a rescue that can take her. The poor girl is 10, she has NEVER been to the vet, is not spayed, her breath and teeth are HORRIBLE, she is terribly hand shy, and she has no clue what dog food is. These people apparently threw whatever left over scraps at her for her to eat, or she stole food from the other dogs' bowls (who they are apparently keeping).
Aside from her suffering from obvious neglect, she is a complete sweetheart. She loves people, though you have to move slowly to pet her or pick her up as she trembles and shies away and is very stiff when you hold her at first.
I just...cannot believe how people can be. I had to share this poor dog's story with my fellow Dogster's who are actual responsible owners.
