Owner named his pet ‘Stupid’ prior to being evicted and dog seized

Spread the love

As a passerby walked past the shelter cage of a brown and white pit bull terrier at the Riverside Animal Shelter in California, he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the name on a kennel card stating the dog’s name was Stupid.

“We couldn’t believe it until we actually saw it,” one shelter volunteer wrote on Facebook. What kind of owner names their dog something like that?

An owner who clearly doesn’t give a crap about their dog! “

The dog had been confiscated after the dog’s owner was evicted from his home. After the confiscation hold was up, the owner surrendered the dog to the shelter on August 1. Five days later, the dog was adopted, however that dream of “living happily ever after” came to an abrupt end when the dog was returned one day later because he didn’t get along with the other dogs in the household.

“We’ve dubbed him with the name Chance,” volunteers reported over the weekend. He is very friendly when you approach his kennel but is starting to become kennel stressed.”

PLEASE NOTE! THE SHELTER DID NOT NAME THIS BOY. They also DID NOT display the kennel card stating dog’s original name on his kennel! Do not bash the shelter! They didn’t agree with the name “Stupid” either!
