    Well I was at wallyworld last night and found a emaciated lil pit bull mix pup running around the parking lot. Probably about 8 weeks old and eating good. Problem is she was covered in ticks and scabs from where she had been scratching. Gave her a good flea and tick bath, gave her some dewormer, wife attacked her with a comb and got a great deal of the lil ticks off, and then rewashed with a organic shampoo to help with any itches. Shes a nice lil pup but doesnt seem to like my other female....so IDK if were gonna keep her or not, but atleast she got cleaned up, food in her belly and a warm place.

    Good save!

    I hate when people leave their pets for others to care for. It's just so wrong. [​IMG]
