For anyone who claims they can’t find a puppy to adopt from a shelter and purchases their new best friend from a pet store, a breeder or a puppy mill supplier, check this little guy out. This terrified 4-month-old puppy desperately tries to sleep his fears away. Why would such a cute puppy wind up at Carson Animal Care? Was he an Easter present to a child? Did the family figure out puppies need attention and care? Did the family get bored and impatient with having to train and care for this little one?

    Don’t People know that a Dog is your for Life. Sick People that turn their Dogs into a Shelter Suck. Karma will get you.

    Some people should never be allowed to have an animal – it is a lifetime responsibility and if you are too self centered to take care of another living being, then DON’T get one just to dump him/her when you realize you are too selfish to handle it. This adorable little animal deserves a safe loving home and not to be stuck in some shelter. PLEASE – someone who wants the responsibility and will take the time to care for this little guy is out there – PLEASE save him.

    I have been saying that for years! Dont purchase any live creature unless you can give them a forever home! Its heartbreaking to see this, who ever is going to consider getting a puppy or larger or more mature dog. Is this how you treat dogs and cats puppies and kittens!

    Rhetorical question here but WTF is wrong with people? A dog isn’t a piece of furniture. You get a dog – it’s for the life of the dog.

    They are NOT “shelters,” and they are not “Care” organizations. They are pounds (impound facilities), and they are run according to an agenda which has little to nothing to do with compassion for the beings who have the misfortune to end up inside them.

    Such a big rope around the neck of a 4 month old puppy??? Must be a first time owner who has no clue on what it takes to care for a puppy and not willing to learn either. A real horse’s ass! Being a puppy, there’s a good chance this little guy be adopted or rescued. Please keep us updated.

      instead of fantasy of killing witch is soo wrong why not take your energy and get this puppy a good home and let fate take care of the rest.
      right now we have an awsome curly haired cutie who needs some love and kisses. Use your magic powers to get him home and cozy.
