    Poor thing. Is it that hard to take a dog to the shelter or SPCA? Are people really that ignorant that they think they’re better off tied up to fend for themselves. People never fail to amaze and disgust. I wish there were much tougher laws for people who abuse, neglect, and allow their animals to roam free to the detriment of other people and pets. I have a rescue pup that was dumped off the side of a road in a box! This guy looks like a sweetie and I hope he finds a wonderful forever home that deserves him.

    Sheeple, listen to me.

    None of this matters. It is a dog. Get over it.

    What matters is that in America, little girls can
    still grow up, get married, and then make false allegations of abuse.
    Then they can collect child support, lifetime alimony, and get the
    mortgage paid for by a man working three jobs to survive. That’s how
    it works.

    This is every woman’s dream, and let’s make sure it comes true. After
    all, this IS America. God bless the USA.

    It’s a dog. It matters. You should get some professional help for that obvious hatred you have against women before someone gets hurt or killed, or you end up in prison which may be a good place for you.

      Helen, you know as well as I do that cats and dogs aren’t much more than cockroaches with fur. They should euthanize that dog. As a woman, I know you feel self-entitled (it just goes without saying). You should get off your high horse.

    No I don’t know that. What I do know is that you are one of the hateful, self centered and scary people without a soul or empathy for other living creatures who makes this world a hard place to live in at times. Either that or you are just a bitter loser in life who has nothing better to do than attack people on the internet because you don’t know how to get rid of your negativity.
    Get a hobby, find a life. Look for something good. I’m sad for you.
