Re: My new dog has an owner, wwyd?

The owner is lucky the dog is even alive and this lady is willing to return her at all, IMO. All cats I've ever gotten from a rescue have been fully vetted and sterilized, I don't think this case is any different. The owner's story sounds bogus to me, really, and waiting 10 days to have anyone look for the dog seems fishy.
Yup yup yup!!

We had someone at the shelter I worked at come almost a MONTH after losing her dog (who was in foster care for an injury) and volunteer recognized the dog from picture. The shelter didn't HAVE to give it back, but they did return the dog to her. She took one look at the dog, lifted her tail to look at her lady parts and said "Oh, she's fixed?!?" and was very upset because she was a "$50,000" breeding dog . . . needless to say this was a bully breed dog that was found as an injured stray in Phoenix. She took the dog back, but it was just sad because she seemed to care much more about breeding than anything else.

Sorry for the derail, but if you lose your unaltered animal and a rescue or shelter takes possession of the dog after the time period allowed by law they have every right to alter it. Spend a day "in the back" at an open admissions or "kill" shelter as they are called and then tell me whether this or any other dog should be spayed/neutered.
