Purebred Breeders has decided to speak on the issue of having unwanted dogs/puppies because as undesirable as the topic is, this a reality for some. The fact is, some people end up with dogs by one means or another, but are not prepared for a long term commitment to a canine friend. Others choose not to get their dogs neutered, and then are unwilling and unprepared to deal with the arrival of puppies. While we strongly urge people to not take on a pet of any kind unless they have the means, time, and patience for one, we will accept the reality that it happens.
This in mind, please take all unwanted pets to a animal rescue home, shelter, vet or pet hospital near you so that they can advise you, or take the lovely little bundles off your hands. Purebred Breeders was beyond heartbroken to learn of 6 beautiful pups that were left in a suitcase along the road, just two blocks from the owner’s house. The pups may be fine now, but the story could have ended differently. Plus, the mommy dog is no doubt distraught.
A Brief Rundown of the Story
A female dog was seen milling around a suitcase, and people became curious. They started investigating with the expectation of finding something interesting, but Purebred Breeders is sure none anticipated what they discovered. The suitcase was opened to reveal 6 English bulldog puppies (3 boys & 3 girls). The female dog was actually the mother of the pups, and was fortunately tagged. The information revealed that her owner lived just two blocks away, and there was no doubt he was responsible for the puppies since his name was on the suitcase!
The owner now faces minor misdemeanor charges, and the puppies are being taken care of. Purebred Breeders is glad to know that there are persons already lined up to adopt these beautiful little things; too bad they are being held as evidence and cannot be handed over until this is no longer so. Our heart goes out to the mommy…we have a network of breeders, so we know that pups being sent to other homes is common. However, dogs are naturally protective of their own, and it could not have been easy for her stand outside that suitcase unable to nurture her babies.
There was a much easier, and more humane way to go about this. Do not risk jail time, hefty fines, and the stress that comes from making the news for a wrongdoing. A newspaper lined cardboard box dropped off at any group for animals might have been a longer journey, but Purebred Breeders is sure it would have definitely saved this person a lot. Locate a number and call any of the aforementioned persons or places. You may not want them, but we know someone else does. Give unwanted animals a chance, do not just dump them.
