OMG, What have I done?!? 6 week old Pit Bull puppy.

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

OMG, What have I done?!? 6 week old Pit Bull puppy.

Do you ever have those times when you're trying to help one dog and along comes something unexpected? My mom and I are on a mission to help these two mangey dogs in a very poor neighborhood get help. One dog is off the streets thanks to another rescuer. So we went Sunday to leave food for the other and bathe him if we saw him. Well, we found him, did our deed and were about to leave when this comes along:

This was not on the agenda. This is the last thing I needed right now. WTF, is wrong with me? But how could I leave him? One of the locals said he belonged to some neighbors and that they have 3, but this is the only one we saw. He said his son asked if he could have one and they said "no". He said they don't take care of them, they run loose and come close to getting run over by their owners and others. I asked the man if he would say anything if I took the pup. He said "I see nothing". :headbang:

My mom took him to the vet today so I'm waiting to find out what he has or doesn't have. With a belly like that I'm sure he has every internal parasite imaginable. I shutter to think there are 2 more. If I had somewhere for them to go I'd do another snatch and run.

Taking applications and name suggestions.

Way to go! Poor pup. Love that the neighbor was willing to turn a blind eye - too bad he wasn't willing to do more. :thumbsup:

I think that was the best he could do. He's on oxygen, so apparently in pretty poor health himself. We offered him money for the use of water and he refused it and thanked us for helping the dogs.

He's so tiny. The vet said all he had was hooks and tapes and possibly sarcoptic mange even though the skin scrape showed nothing. He's a screamer too.

Names anyone? The more unusual the better, but must be positive since he'll be up for adoption.

Operation "Puppy Safe House" is a go! Great job giving that little guy a better chance in life. How about 'Que' or just 'Q' or 'Cue' It's definitely different. ;)
