When I was taking Brody through the park behind our house at 6:30 this morning, I noticed a young dog in the exit we normally use. Brody didn't see it, so I quickly turned around and put him in my yard and closed the gate. I went to investigate, and found a very frightened puppy sitting beside the chain link fence, with its extension leash tied to the top of it. She gave a little growl, but no bark. I thought maybe the owner had to run back home for some reason, so I left the puppy, got Brody and took another route to the school yard. After 45 minutes of fetch, we were walking home and I could see that the pup was still there. I took Brody home, fed him, had breakfast and so on. About 9:30, I decided to go back and check if the puppy was still there. She was. I went and got some food and water and took my daughter with me to see what we should do. We put the food and water down a couple feet from her, then just sat back and waited for her to do something. She didn't move for the longest time, so I sent my daughter home to get some more food that we could toss a little closer to her. Once we had done that, she quickly ate the food and ventured right up to the bowl. This was when I noticed that she wasn't even attached to the leash. She had been sitting there that whole time when she could have run away. She then came bounding right up to us, eating food out of our hands, climbing in our laps and licking our faces. I went to untie the leash and found that it was attached to the biggest choke chain I had ever seen in my life! The chain was just lying on the ground right where the puppy had been sitting. She quickly gulped down all the food we had brought, plus a bowl of water. We took her home with us, and checked her over a bit. She looks like she could be a german shepherd/pit bull mix. She has mostly baby teeth still, but very long claws, all of them black. She was very friendly and cuddly, a little bouncy, but obviously fairly well cared for. When we realized we couldn't keep her here because of Brody, I went to talk to my neighbors, who had told me they were planning on getting a puppy. They said they couldn't take her either, because their puppy was arriving today, but their neighbor on the other side said she might like to have her. Then the lady arrived with the new puppy, and a friend that was with her jumped at the chance to take this young pup. My neighbor emailed a picture of her to his brother who trains security dogs, and knows a lot of dog people, so he was sure he could find someone to take her. My neighbor offered to keep her until one of these potential adopters decided to take her home. No ear tattoo, no tags. What kind of person does something like this?
