Default Saddest looking pup I've ever seen

This little guy totally broke my heart on pet finder. Even though I could wind up in divorce court if I got him Does anyone have any idea how to go about getting a pup from out of state like this? The shelter states they will adopt out of state, but will not ship, drive anywhwere etc., which is perfectly understandable. Any suggestions? --not saying 100% I could take him, but wondering how to go about it if I could....or if anyone else in Eastern, KY is looking to adopt a pup, here's one to consider!

they have a msg board on petfinder where people set up transports by people volunteering to drive. This happens all the time; people fill out the adoption application online and send the money, and set up a date for the dog to be picked up and shipped...

Personally I'd rather the new owner drive all the way to get the pup and talk to the shelter people ect ect.... but that's just me

Yep, I agree that going to the shelter would be ideal. Its about a 10 1/2 hour drive....Now I did a trip to KY to get my horse and have remained good friends with his breeder--she is about 3 1/2 hours from this place...It might take some planning, but maybe there is a way...I'll also check out that message board--thank you for the tip--I'm not well versed in pet finder yet, so its good to know what resources are on there...

A-w-w-w...he does look miserable. But take a look at the size of those feet and the thickness of his legs! I have a funny feeling about the Manchester Terrier idea. LOL.

I know!!! I was thinking the same thing! LOL it is defintely a dubious Manchester connection there---any other guesses as to what he might be? BUT, He does look like he might have some "pencil marks" on his legs and toes, which is a Manchetser trait...he could be a crossed with a very large Standard Manchester and a some other kind of bigger dog, who knows? But that little face is just haunting. So sad.--Although Zippy can look like that when he doesn't get his way or is trying to pull one over on me LOL!

I was thinking Doberman....but then again, I have Doberman on the brain. LOL. He's not quite so bulky looking as a Rott, but he definitely reminds me of a Doberman or mix. Maybe he's mixed with Manchester. Dobes have Manchester in their make-up too.

Me too!!!!!! I sent the shelter a donation--also another Manchester owner on another list said they would sponsor him although they can't take him. I really hope he winds up with someone to snuggle with. I'm sooo tempted to just take a weekend road trip, but there are just so many things to consider...
