Default Guess What I Did??

I helped save a life. I know many of you have done this also, but it just makes me feel so incredible inside. He's a Rat Terrier, definetely full-blooded, intact and very young. I would say he is no older than 2 years old. He was healthy looking except for a little infection on his back. Well, he wandered up to our driveway and I scooped him up into my arms and he seemed so happy. Happy, yet scared. We kept him and fed him. I shaved the infected area, bathed him in some Oatmeal shampoo and it started slowly healing.

Now he is nestling into his new home at my uncle and aunt's house. He gets along great with his new sisters, Foxy and Lacey. And soon he will be getting fixed and up 2 date on all his shots. Yay! I'm so excited!

Nice. Just curious though, did you ask around first to see if nobody lost him? Sorry to assume that you didn't, but you didn't mention it, and there might be a family somewhere looking for him.

I agree...call all the shelters to see if any one called in a missing pup and the vets in your area,....also do pet finder on line. Someone may be very sad that they lost their baby.

Glad you helped him. I was wondering the same thing, if you posted about a found dog to see if anyone was looking for it.

I'd check with the vets in the area. They should know if one of their clients has a dog like that. I've had good luck locating responsible owners that way . . . Unless he belonged to a good breeder and just made a break for it while chasing vermin, I would wonder why an intact 2 year old Rattie was wandering around. I really don't know that I'd be all that anxious to contact the shelters and possibly send him back into a lousy situation - like a BYB. Rat Terriers are becoming very popular with the BYB set.

Glad the little feller is settling in happily!

Pro -

I think that they just wanted to make sure he didn't have a home already.

I say, good for you! He's got a good home and life now, he'll be much happier.

I know they were just being thoughtful, but it seems as though everyone lately has thought that I am just very irresponsible and don't know what I am doing...
