“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” | Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
On the way home today my son and I noticed a Rottweiler
walking by herself. She was headed for a road that leads out to a main road. We spoke with an elderly woman that looked interested in the dog and it wasn't hers, but she was trying to retrieve it to check for tags. She told us there was another dog and she would go look for him while we try to help this doggy. We caught up to the doggy and my son managed to get her to turn around. About 15 minutes later Kyle (my son) had befriended the dog and she was sitting for him. :) She didn't have any tags, so we got her in the car and started knocking on doors. I waved down a police officer and asked him if he knew anything about two missing dogs. Sure enough he was looking for them. A women had called and complained about two dogs bothering her while she was jogging. We showed him the Rottweiler and he asked us to drive down the street to where he already had animal control waiting. The police officer told the lady that he believes the dogs were just trying to play around with her. She didn't have any scratches or anything. He explained to her if those dogs had wanted to hurt her they would have. The officer and the animal control guy were impressed with the Rottweiler. She was just hanging out while we were all talking. We were given an ID# so we can track her online. And the animal control guy posted papers with info throughout the neighborhood. We're hoping her owners will get her back home soon. All of this on the way home from getting bread and eggs. We can never pass up an animal in need. :)
Isn't she a beauty? Pic was taken with my son's camera phone.
The leash is from animal control.
My son was ready to bring her home. :)
The nice animal control guy scanned her for a chip and there was none.
