A few weeks back, I saw what looked like a pony in the middle of a busy road at rush hour. Turns out it was a loose Harlequin Great Dane. Everyone else was driving around him, so I got out and wrangled him (no collar to grab onto ).

After walking around with him, talking to whoever was out and about, I found his home. The owners were there, sitting on their front porch, not looking for their dog . Their chainlink fence was wide open...they were just waiting for the dog to come back on his own because they were lazy losers!

So I yell out "Um, is this your dog? He was out in the middle of traffic and was nearly hit 4 times before I could grab him." They mumble something like "yeah", then ignore me, call the dog into the house and just pretend like I am invisible .

In the meantime, someone had called the police already, so I told that lady where to send the police to when they showed up.

These fools had a yard full of purebred dogs of every type and the kicker is that from their front porch, they could see the road their dog was running around on. So they were probably watching their dog darting in and out of traffic.

Yeah, people annoy me every day .
This is why I do not like this state anymore. I have been here over three years and just about everytime I leave the house I either see a skinny stray or a poor dog chained somewhere. I did not see any of this back in Jersey. Only if you go into a ghetto town. Where I come from people take care of their pets, like they are their kids. This is horrible what goes on in Florida....although I was warned Florida is bad with pet situations. Boy do these people annoy me around here!

Isn't this just So upsetting? Unfortunately, this pup won't really be ok. Stupid people don't make good parents for human or pet "kids". So sad for some many animals out there that are forgotten and neglected.

Grrrrrrrrr I could be such an Angry person when it comes to Animals.

Wish I could do something to all "those kinds of people".

There is no excuse for that rudness. I have returned a few lost/escaped dogs to their homes and the owners have always thanked me and been very greatful. One lady tried to pay me, but I refused so she sent her son back with a cake.
I know I would be greatful to anyone who made the effort to bring my dog back to me.

Thankfully, 20yrsinbranson there are more people like you in the world and not the idiot who answered the door, who should definitely not have procreated yet alone own a dog!

Luckily I live in a small town and most everybody knows everybody else. While I was standing there hunched over the pup, a lady came by and told me that I should go to "that house over there [pointing]" that she knew they had a puppy there that looked a lot like the escaped dog.

So off to the house we went. Me and a slightly hyper, spazzed out pit-something puppy. We knocked on the door.

Big stupid dumb kid answers. "HUH?" I say.... "Is this your dog?" big stupid dumb kid mumbles.... "Wait a sec"

Next thing I know, dad appears at the door. Slightly crumpled, definitely unshaven - is that *something* I smell on his breath????? Anyway. I ask him.. "Is this your dog". Without saying a word, the man calls the dog, Jake, into the house and slams the door in my face.

Nice people.

I guess I should have just let the dog run away and get squished on the highway.

Doesn't ANYONE have any manners any more? No thanks, nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero.

sheesh.

How sad. You could call child services and report the guy for being a drunk parent.
