|I think it would be a case by case basis.
However, in the case of T.C., I wouldn't give her back. I posted everywhere for her, took her to the pound, and had her for 7 months before we had her spay done and ended up registering her with the city as our dog. When we rescued her, she had a lot of behavioral problems. She didn't trust men and did not like kids. She had a broken rib that had already healed. She was pregnant with 10 puppies. To this day, if I yell, she immediately drops to the ground and sulks. Loud noises scare her. If someone makes a fast movement near her, she will flip out. I have had to do a lot of training with her and she has not been a cheap dog. She also was loose around a very busy part of our town without a collar and no microchip. I did everything I could to find her owners but there was nothing. The sad fact is, if I left her at the pound, she would not have had a chance. She was very fearful and more then likely would of been put down for behavioral issues or been put down due to no interest.
There is a part of me that still believes she was owned. I have talked to people who actually saw her dodging cars on busy streets before we got her. I have theories on what happened to her. Truth is though, she is extremely happy here. She has two older and responsible children that she loves to play with. There is someone almost always home with her. She gets a lot of training, exercise, and love. She also is best friends with Belgian and hates being separated from him. I looked everywhere and both my younger brother and I would walk around town with her for the first couple weeks to see if she gained any interest.Nothing. At the end of May we will have had her for over 2 years.
