well i dont know why she came to me today. i was really busy and couldnt go outside and she couldnt come inside. but... i did get to see the poor girl. she was very thin, with a cropped tail. to be honest with you, she looked like crap. granted she does have lymes disease and all, but among other things just from looking at her i think she'd be really hard to place. its been tough enough lately with all my bills let alone a frail beat up dog adding to my tally. she has to recoup and plus all the time it would take to place her...i cant imagine. i wasnt expecting such a project.
i dont mean to be harsh..im just seeing it as it is.
what should i do?? should i tell her to contact the local pitbull rescue?? or should i tell her ill try to help her find a home?? damn i suck at this crap.

We all bend but bending to the point of breaking doesn't do the dogs any favors. If I end up not making bills b/c I took in another dog who does that serve? not me- and not the dog. and not the dogs that come later.
you could do a human euthanasia on the jerky who bred her, the one that docked her tail, or the many who failed to care for her- that I could get behind. Unless you're made of time and money it is not possible to make up for her sad situation by yourself. Don't take any crap for knowing your limits.
