YDI for buying a dog from a pet store, and then either leaving your trunk open or leaving the dog alone in the car.
"pet stores" do not host adoptions..they sell back yard breeder dogs. Meaning health problems galore. YDI for 1)buying/adopting a dog from a pet store and not a real shelter and 2)leaving said dog alone at your car without supervision...irresponsible dog owners don't deserve pets
because anyone adopting a dog should know that proper place to get one. Is everyone just ignoring the fact that first he wasn't even prepared at all for a dog since he had no supplies or bowls or even food and then left the dog alone while he went on his merry way? I say good for the dog for getting away
No decent rescue centre would allow a random fuckwit to walk in off the street and depart with a dog. Rescues make you fill out questionnaires on how much you know about the species you want to adopt, your personal circumstances, how you'd care for the animal (you know... what you'd feed it and stuff), and then they do a homecheck. If they don't do all that, they end up sending animals off to incompetent lunatics like the OP. So no, this person did not 'adopt' a dog. They bought one. Anyway, YDI! Animals are not fucking toys, you do not wake up one morning and go 'hey, Imma buy me a new puppy!' you irresponsible twat. If you failed to consider what you were going to FEED the poor dog, something tells me you also failed to think about training and socialisation classes, pet insurance, a good local vet, the first round of vaccinations and de-nadding... you know... those little important points that someone over the age of 12 should be mature enough to consider.
Petsmart is not a pet store, it is a pet supplies store that has an adoption center available. Adoption fees are far lower than pet store prices, enough so that to say that you "adopted" a dog is very different than saying that you "bought" a dog. And most pet stores do not get their animals from backyard breeders. Backyard breeders are harmless. Chain pet stores get their animals from puppy mills, where their health and well being are neglected. Seems to me like the OP bought the dog from a pet store. Also seems to me like he wasn't responsible enough to own the dog in the first place, seeing as how he left it alone, out in the open, and was surprised that someone took advantage of his mistake. OP, while I wouldn't say that anyone deserves to have their pet taken from them barring abuse, if that was how you intended to care for it you wouldn't have lasted long anyway.
A lot of people don't know about these mills and don't know that pet stores could be getting their animals from there. He just got the dog and it's not like you are going to be an animal expert and know exactly what to do right away. Also it would be 5 times worse if he left the dog in his car with the window cracked because the dog wouldn't get any air compared to it being in the bed of a truck where there is atleast a breeze. He might not have know that he could have taken it inside since it sounds like his first pet and he probably didn't go there enough to know that he could. As for the dog now having a better owner, that is HIGHLY unlikely considering that it was stolen with a radio not liberated by an animal rescue crew. The thief will probably either put it in dog fights or sell it to someone else. Hopefully the dog will be okay, but you can buy another radio.
You dickhead. He only just decided to get the dog, that's why he didn't have the stuff. Also, if you had read the story properly, it says that his stereo was stolen too. Labradors are really expensive and much sought-after animals. Obviously it was stolen, it didn't run away
wow your a dumbass! FYI Petsmart does adoptions of RESCUED pets. I worked for banfield the pet hospital, and we recieved transport pets from many many kill shelters scattered across the state. We made sure they were healthy, and then the adoption agency called Almost home foundation would put them up for adoption. if pets are up for adoption, they are always vaccinated and fixed. FOR SALE is where u find the sick pets.
..Yikes. At least uhm, your truck was still there. And unharmed.
Your dog probably stole that shit and ran, those labs are pretty sketchy.
You're not suppoesd to put dogs in the bed of your truck.... Where do you think all the exhaust fumes go? Not to mention he could get seriously injured if the crate wasnt tied down well, or you were hit by another vehicle.
