I’ve very lucky to live next to a beautiful natural area boardering the Colorado River. About a week ago I was hiking back there with my dog, Brutus, when we found a little puppy all by his lonesome. He was scared and angry at first (it probably thought Brutus was going to eat him!), but soon calmed down. After I began to pet the pup, he dropped the werewolf fascade and warmed up to us immediately. I searched the area for its mother or sibblings, but found none; I can only assume he was abandoned out there.
I brought the half-starved guy home where he scarfed down his first meal. He was weak and still frightened and would find safe little nooks in my backyard to crawl up in and sleep. He was filthy though, so I gave him a bath, and let him recover in style, wrapped up in a warm towel on my bed. He peed on my bed in appreciation.
Since then he’s been examined by the vet, given his shots and house-trained. His attitude has become considerably happier and more playful. He’s very friendly and intelligent. He’s a Black Labrador.
Although it will break my heart to give him away, I simply cannot keep him. It shouldn’t be hard to find this awesome guy a good home though. If you know one, stake your claim now!
