Free to good home

It's something we see quite often.
People trying to rehome dogs due to changes in life.

This is Dottie's story.
She lived for 7 years as a beloved pet.
Her owner was a retired gentleman, and they enjoyed life together on a farm.
But her world changed when he passed away. The extended family had no place for her. They left her on the farm for two months, and periodically dropped off food for her. She was going to be a dog, that was Free to a good home.
What was suppose to be a good home, was not.
Last Wednesday she was beaten to the point of being unconscious. You see Dottie is scared to be outside during thunderstorms. She wanted in the house, so they beat her for scratching at the door. If it happened again, they threatened to shoot her. We learned of Dottie's plight on Thursday. Even with Cane Rosso Rescue's intake being closed, Dottie was going to get to join. She was quickly scooped up by a volunteer, then traveled over 300 miles the next day to the rescue center. She was the sweetest Copilot, during our time together. While she is safe with rescue, she is not feeling very well. She's had a very thorough exam, with blood test, and xrays. She's on antibiotics, pain medicine, and nausea medicine. While the vets figure out if her problems are from trauma, or from other medical issues.

I pray that I out live my dogs, and they never know the evil in this world .

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

I felt sick reading what had happened to Dottie, what is wrong with people?!
What a relief she's in safe hands and I hope her health issues are resolved asap.

Its the question that always comes to mind, and is never really answered.
What makes someone have no compassion for a person, or animal in their care.

I wish there wasn't the need to post things like this, it's simply heart breaking..like those Sally Struthers TV pleas that seem to go on and on and on with those pathetic dogs in crates who have been subject to such inhumanity.

I just don't know what it is about people that results in such a detachment from basic humanity. What is wrong with people?

Without naming it
I'm not a fan of that organization.
Very little of the money actually goes to saving dogs.
Big salaries, paying lobbyist, and TV ads get most of the donated money. They are more of a animal rights movement, than they are at saving animals. Although you wouldn't know it, by watching their TV commercial.
I love helping dogs. I just don't love making other people rich, in the name of helping dogs.

Cane Rosso has a open door policy.
From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. everyday of the week. Anyone can go to the rescue center, and see the dogs .
Dogs with fosters, you do have to have a appointment.
It's very easy to see what money is raised, and where it is spent. Dottie has been staying with one of the (not a paid position) board of directors as a medical foster. She has a adopter, but has to cleared by a vet first.

Oh well, enough of me preaching.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

I was just going to run dogs today. I had ran them in one field, and was headed to a second field. Halfway to the second field, there is a older pup standing beside the road. As I slow down, and stop he crosses the road and hides in the ditch. I get out, and look to see if I have any treats in the Durango. I look down and he's at my feet. I pat the front seat, and he hops in. Its just empty fields on both sides of the road, with no homes close by. Its one of the areas where people are known to dump unwanted dogs. Instead of going to the next field, we head to the vet to get him scanned for a chip. He didn't have one. So now even though my home is at its dog limit, and the rescue is full. He came home with me.
The collar on him is mine.

This is also a message I received after posting him on lost and found page.
Clearly they do not know who I am, or how I feel about free to a good home.

it just beggars belief that people can be so thoughtless and cruel!

He's starting his vaccinations tomorrow, and his new name is Ryder. Its due to how well he rode on my front seat, and he's also built like lowrider car.
A friend that also helps foster for rescue, asked if he could stay with her for a little while. Of course I said yes.
