Urgent Placement needed, Am Staff male 1yr. EASTERN WA

Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

Urgent Placement needed, Am Staff male 1yr. EASTERN WA

Postby msvette2u » Fri Mar 12, 2010 9:31 pm

Rex is 1yr. old unneutered male, his owner moved and left him in the lower Yakima Valley, Rex was purchased (apparently) from a Pet store as a puppy and his owner left him at the owner's Grandmother's house.
They have stuck him in a (roomy) horse trailer - and on Monday he will be dropped off to the Humane society in Yakima where he'll likely be PTS :(
We have no room at all and in fact just got a senior Doberman Pinscher from the shelter today.
I can help arrange transport however, if I can find a placement for this beautiful boy who has never met a stranger!
He is a big love bug, played with the Grandma's Labrador, she said they just wrestled. He is living next to a feed lot, Grandma has no fenced yard, and that's why he's kept in a trailer for now.

Please please help if you can - pardon the camera phone pix.

*sighs* I wish we had room. If I could get these damn "show dogs" somewhere we would. Until then..we are packed to the gills.

The only (few) replies I have gotten are telling me they are full...except the one rescue in Idaho who claimed they don't take "strays" (he's not a stray) but pull dogs from shelters only.
:dunno:
I am out of ideas.

Can they drop him off a shelter where he will be given a chance to be adopted? Geez. Why take a dog to that shelter if they know he will be PTS. :crybaby:

Because there are no other shelters in our area...the only other one "close" is over 40 miles from the dog and they don't accept owner surrenders :\ Oh and there's BSL there too, in two of the cities.

Well, yes and no, I mean he'd have to have been picked up as a stray IN that town (one of the 3 towns-Tri Cities).
He's technically an OS and he's not even from Tri Cities.
Yakima takes owner surrenders with a $10.00 fee.
